Generally it sounds like you made the right move here.

Itís odd, I donít know how big my company is vs. Napaís, but our controller is nowhere near as advanced in her career as Napa... in other words, I feel heíd be overqualified for the job.

We have a pretty decent sized accounting department (3 full timers), so itís not like she isnít managing anyone or left with little responsibility. Her background isnít accounting, but she did just get her CPA.

Strat...is working with a recruiter under some amount of anonymity an option?
Itís a good idea. I will check it out. Thank you.

I will know whether Iím getting any equity by 12/31. Heard some discouraging things about the status of that, so they may not do it at all. If they do award any equity this year, and Iím not among the recipients, I will get more aggressive with the job search, likely to the point where Iíd take a 20-30% cut just to be out of this situation.

Been thinking about it today, I am breaking one of my own rules by just being passively pissed about my job situation. I think I need to at least know whatís out there. There are two problems.

My company makes it mandatory that you hand over your LinkedIn password and let them actively log everything. Itís considered a risk that I may do business with clients over LinkedIn, so everyone regardless of job title is required to allow monitoring. Frankly I think itís a huge privacy violation and canít understand why my personal texts arenít treated the same way.

Itís a small world and my CEO knows everyone. If I apply locally, for certain, itíll get back to someone at my firm within a month.

So I donít know what to do. Iím not serious about leaving, and if I start applying, it seems pretty likely that itíll be discovered and possibly held against me.
