Smaller tech boutique. Rather not say.

They have been in contact monthly, and said they hope it lifts by the end of the quarter. That was last month. Legit or think they are dragging it along? I know many firms on hiring freezes. The interview process has been long as it’s. Senior role.

Regardless of their intentions...do you really want to join a firm that is not doing well financially?

Curious if anyone has advice if I should look for another job. My boss is a micro manager, not big on WLB, I don’t see an opportunity to independently work on projects ever and there is no path to promotion since it’s a very small team. On the flip side, he’d take me to all exec meetings and it’s been in an incredible learning experience to be in those rooms, listening and knowing where I’m making an impact. He’s been a good coach and thinks highly of me. (Contd.)
