EP 16: Career conversations - how to onboard a new employee, how to manage, how to handle promotions
In our first ever 'solo' episode (as Sriram says - 'we don't have a guest, but we have...each other'), Aarthi and Sriram talk about how to successfully onboard a new employee - both from the employer's perspective and for the new employee. And also, how to handle that first 1:1 with your manager, and the different tactics for onboarding for small startups vs bigger companies. And finally, how to think about promotions at work.
