What’s the top things you check on a work contract offer apart from the standard (eg. wage, hours, etc)?
Should I check for any restrictive non-compete or any other clause which could cause me issues?

PTO policy. As a parent, do I need to jump through hoops when my kid’s school calls and says he fell in a toilet and broke a tooth without someone being bent out of shape or can I just take off and handle it later? (True story, he was four).

Thank you!

Read everything and don't just assume parts will be fine even though they don't read like they are.

I always look at non-compete and other restrictions. I've come across a few in my career that have had shady stuff I was glad I didn't get locked into.

Yeah also if you want to build your own business what the restrictions are around that

Maybe IP too, if that would be relevant for you. Sometimes companies try to get ownership of all IP, even if made in the course of a side hustle etc.

When your 401k vests. Most companies are 3 or 5 years

I put in my two weeks a while ago and this Friday is my last day. No one has reached out to me about coordinating equipment return (I’m remote rn) or off boarding me.

My HRBP is no where to be seen either - I think they quit as well. What do I do and is there any chance I can keep my work phone - it’s better than my personal

I’m pretty solid with negotiations but have never been in this type of situation before. If anyone has tips that would be great.

PS would really like to get base number up rather than PTO/equity/other benefits! ty!

Things felt too good to be true at first yet I know my worth and thought about time, a company finally saw my worth also, so I resigned from the company I spent over 12+ years with. Things were going great, then June I was placed on a bogus PIP (fully Corrected) then laid off.

Hi everyone !

I currently work in SaaS, and I recently got proposed a Customer Success Manager position there. I was initially looking for an Account Executive position, but I was afraid to be a bit bored, and not to be able to express my creativity enough in this position. From what I was explained, CSM would allow me to work in between several departments and to be very free.
In your opinion, should I wait for an AE role or are learning and growth opportunities bigger as a CSM ?
