I've never liked the current rank names.
Partner is more of a title in a co-owner partnership like a law or accounting firm which AE is not.
Also using 'junior' in a title seems like an insult.

@BioXide said I should come up with some new ones.

I (and Sam before he left) came up with the following while trying to keep to the corporate theme and have something different than the other corp. factions.

Managing Director
Director
Manager
Supervisor
Associate
Employee
Contractor
Intern

Seems kinda generic corporate, Better than what we have currently I'd agree.

What can be modified to make it more unique to fit the AE Faction Backstory?

I mean, the three MegaCorp factions are all in unique positions with their culture being different. OZ is Japanese oriented, NSM is blue collar worker/indentured slave oriented, and AE can fill the void of being the generic European/North American Megacorporation. Although, I don't think I like having Director and then Managing Director. Sure the R7 is probably going to really just be the head of the HC council of your faction, so by just adding Manager to their name, but I think President would be a better title imo.

*Edit* just realized that OZ uses President, and NSM uses Chief Executive... woops. Idk, I guess Chariman might work?

Instead of Managing Director make it Director and you can change Director to Shareholders or Chief operating officer (COO). Just some food for thought.

That doesn't make sense. There's only one Managing director but multiple directors. Shareholder isn't a corporate title. COO is a singular position not a level title.

Worked under corporate as a Shift Manager. There is not usually a Managing Director. Just a Director and then the COO sits directly under usually a president or in this case a Director.

Omg you had a job. Omg a company did what? There's not one size fits all. Also did you even bother googling anything? See I work for one the biggest tech companies in the world so I know a bit about their Corp. layout but I didn't just assume that everyone is the same. I googled shit to see what's out there. Having senior people be directors and having one be the top person as managing director is a totally normal structure. You also seem to have ignored my point about single vs multiple people in a rank which is the most obvious reason you're suggestion is shit.

First off I have a few years in management, secondly I never said I worked for just 1 company. You made that assumption on your own. Thirdly What corporation do you work for? Cause I would love to look up their stuff. Fourthly I never immediately cussed and threw a tantrum for you not agreeing with me. I just simply stated my experience. As well a lot of companies have used the Junior Partner title its a step below being a partner. That way you can learn the ropes of being a partner essentially Junior Partners are a partner in training.

The CEO of Swag should be their R7 rank.

Also Chairman should be the R7 of OZ because I remember watching Memoirs of a Geisha and she called the old man the Chairman in the movie. Just switch around Chairman and President from AE and OZ. ez pz.

Bragging of a promotion when you were the only candidate available, nice.

Had they chosen you, I would have stayed. Instead they chose to wait and watch us bicker.

As for names, it's a fictional corp in fictional future. I feel like you could name them whatever the hell you want lol.
Already have Avalon Knights that walk around with actual swords.
Of course it's a bit of a stretch and might break immersion, but I don't want to see any faction treated as generic anything.
I remember Chip telling me I'm royalty and should act like it lol.
