VP here - it honestly wouldn't bother me. If you're smart and a hard worker, my natural inclination would be for you to do the best thing for you and your career. If that means leaving the firm then so be it. I'm loyal to people, not a corporation. My gut tells me (or at least hopes) that most people are the same.

I am interviewing for an in house job. Large startup in Europe (had Series C and raised 150M) and is starting a US presence. They want to pay base and bonus but bonus is all RSUs/options. It’s significant (about 75% of all in comp). Are these entirely worthless if the company never goes public?

Sisterhood of the Understanding, I have a question for you and pray you may give me guidance. Over the next 2 weeks I have 9 interviews coming up. I’d like to get Botox and my fillers redone, but especially the cheeks and tear troughs tend to leave me with bad bruising for 2 weeks that make-up just doesn’t cover. Only one of the interviews is web cam. Would you do the fillers and Botox now or wait until post interviews?

Hi everyone! I’m a young CPA, relocating to Raleigh. I made the decision to transition into sales after realizing that I want to bring more fun into my career.

I’m relentlessly applying for SDR positions but I’m having trouble landing interviews (been applying through LinkedIn). I would appreciate advice from anyone who transitioned from another industry into sales. How did you break the barrier?
