Yes, if they booked you for those days, then they should still pay you for them. It’s especially true if you have a day rate vs. hourly rate.

Vc carry? Have an interview at a relatively new/small vc (few hundred million aum). They’re offering what sounds like a small base, no bonus, but carried interest (associate position, 3 yoe). Per my understanding this could be either great or awful. What are some questions I should ask to evaluate? Eg around hurdle rate, floor, etc? How long would I have to work there to realize the carry normally?

My title means more than I do. I am a little frustrated. I work really hard at my job. I am the only HR/People OP. There is no one else. I am FTM trans and where most people make $120K+ a year I make $60K. I recently asked for a raise that would have put me at $95K. I know being a queer company we are limited in many things. They came back and gave me $5 grand a year to make me at $65 a year.

I do everything from Chief of People, to VP of People, I do it all. I am at a loss.
