Depends on your level I guess. If you are consultant or lower - I would advise stretch role. You never know what else you could learn + could be good growth opportunity.

What if that work-stream is testing?

Probably stretch role

Feeling hopeful for a job offer in the coming week(s). Would be my first entry to the ‘VP’ level, officially leading my own team and strategy without a CMO. Curious where I should begin with compensation requests - no stock options avail. What’s a realistic salary without cutting myself short? Reasonable to request a signing bonus for loss of end of year bonus by leaving in Q4? What percentage of salary? Does PTO scale up at that level as well? NYC, 10 years exp, Masters, great role fit

Hey fishes I know it's kinda depressing but that's what I am into so it's been months now with Amazon and I've working in a new role learning great stuff but here's the catch I don't have anyone to contact with like people here don't reply if you ask for help and if you even call out like they defend by saying they're busy . Forget favors they don't reply to "hey". I have total 2 yrs of exp so barely saw work culture at office. But I wanna ask is this normal or I'm overthinking.
