If it has increased sales or the value of the Nike Brand , it has done what is is supposed to .

What do admissions officers think about “Special Projects Managers”? I was offered a job with this title, but the title seems vague to me and maybe less strategy oriented than the work I would actually be doing in the role. Is there a similar title that would be a better sell to admissions?

I have enough money to be comfortable, a loving and supportive family, good friends, and good health. Yet I feel unfulfilled? I’m not a religious person but I feel like I’m missing something out of life and it’s eating me up inside.

Our company usually does performance evaluations in June of each year. Our pay philosophy is not clear. We usually give a COLA in January each year, somewhere around 2% and if an employee performed well, they get above the 2%. I have suggested we change our process to have a clear pay philosophy with increases tied to performance, with goals tied to overall goals of the organization. What is your process? Are you doing performance evals during COVID?

Had a networking call with a partner that said they won’t be interviewing until 2021 for lateral hires. Friend said that’s not entirely true, and to try networking with others in that same office. Don’t want to come across as pushy. If a Partner really liked me, couldn’t they make a push to interview me? 🤔

I've often heard about the 1/3 rule when it comes to associate comp (you should be making about 1/3 of what you're bringing in). How big of a gap would you expect an associate to tolerate before asking for a change in comp? I'm on track for about a $75,000 gap between 1/3 of my collections and my comp. My firm is technically not lock step but does seem to be defacto lock step. I lateraled April of 2019 from a boutique so I'm unsure how this is generally handled.
