You’re generally a manager most of the time for generally anything but not all of the time for some things some of the time.

Fairly senior - P&L ownership, 1-2 below C-suite. All these clowns making jokes.

I was feeling corny. With your employers name, I thought you’d empathize.

The General Manager is usually the Manager who manages all the other managers. Jack of all trades, master of none.

Depends on the company, startup vs enterprise. Usually quite senior, director level - manages an entire portfolio, region, or program. If startup, maybe senior manager level.

It’s very senior in sports. Also in a bar unless it’s a chain of bars.

Same as “senior manager” (and below Director) at Delta Airlines and some other companies

Depends on industry. In some cases it can be SVP level with global P&L. Others it is only S. DIR level. Occassionally in mg, it is the senior person of a site.

In industry here at a FTSE 10 company. For us it varies. For smaller countries it is on a par with Director level, two steps from C suite. For bigger countries it is one step from C suite.

Feel kind of silly saying this, but getting more concerned about covid-19. I’m 28 y/o, generally healthy but think I may have high blood pressure, which I’ve read raises risk. Anyone else feel similar

I don’t get why the entire world is freaking out about Covid19. (1) be cautious, (2) don’t visit elderly relatives, but the way I see it- everyone’s going to come into contact with it- it’s inevitable

One of my biggest takeaways from this whole situation is that the Wall Street Journal is a top, top source of daily news. Content, speed, minimal bias.
