This role would report directly to the CEO and primarily be tasked with developing new businesses or ventures for the company.  ideation to commercialization.  What sort of comp should I be looking at? Previous role was a startup, so I’m not really sure of my market value. NYC-based.

I got contacted for a job offer for a Chief of Staff role in SF. Tech company that’s 18-24 months away from an IPO. Around 200 employees and well funded. More of a “strategic advisor to the CEO” role than “shadow” or “gatekeeper” role. Any insight on what I can expect in terms of salary / stock option plan? Thanks!

Got promoted to M last year in August with 2% raise. Deloitte CEO announced early raises and bonuses this year by a quarter (in May).Also he told that base salary increase this year will consider performance of both PY20 and PY21. How much percentage raise can I expect? Is it just a retention straregy?

How high a base salary can go in a big bank? I’m not referring to the total comp (TC) but only base salary before bonus... I assume the highest it can go is up to the CEO’s base but, realistic speaking, what is the maximum i should expect or better put, dream as a potential base salary? I’m currently a SVP, it is somewhere between a VP and a director.

Interviewing for a chief of staff role at a startup that’s raised about $14M so far. What should I look for when assessing if this is a good opportunity? Would work directly with CEO and expecting cash compensation of 100K and 0.25% of equity. Is the equity % low? CEO hopes to sell at 100M, meaning the equity would be valued at 60K a year (4 yrs), but this seems optimistic to me. 2 YOE for reference.

I was interviewing for a freelance job and asked about the creative director (small, new company). The CEO said they haven’t hired one yet and it took everything in my power to ask to be considered for that role. He wants to continue the convo tomorrow. I have 15 years of experience and have done the job of people and project manager and directed large content before. Without the title or salary! How can I prove to him that I can bring value and expertise to this role (besides from my portfolio)

Got an offer from an established (but disorganized, unstructured) startup. Cash comp is good (but not great - 30% paycut over my consulting pay) and was given equity worth a few millions @ a valuation of 3B. Problem is - I have absolutely no clue what this firm is worth at the moment. CEO says it’s currently worth at least 6B. It has good growth potential but I have no way of estimating the probability of this being materialized if and when a transaction occurs. How should I think about this?
