Any ABMs out here? Seems like the app isn't properly organized with anything for CPG marketing / brand management.

Started as product manager in a start-up with a too nice culture- it's all groupthink and the product direction is suffering. Need to get people to be assertive without being an asshole- need advice

How is the gender balance in product relative to dev? Trying to encourage a friend studying CS to enter the field but she's worried about bro culture

Went to the office happy hour and saw some directors getting way to into the open bar…including my boss, who tried to talk to me but forgot my name. LOL.

New GM for business unit comes from data/analytics: 1st product role. He asked for a simplified ‘marketing 101’ - Hard to distill 30 yrs of knowledge without insulting him. Where to begin?

Joined a young start-up with a pretty fratty culture (it's all dudes). Want to build relationships but need to change things- the vibe is turning off prospective hires. Not sure how to start

Our director is leaving and we got her a cake on her last day. Then we found out she's doing whole 30. She looked so sad as the rest of us ate her cake but I kind of laughed. More for us lol

Got roped into demo'ing a product for a client and it completely broke. It was def their network's fault but felt terrible. Fortunately they are giving us another chance…need to set my game plan

Really hate recruiting. Wish I had the money to found a start-up and create my own job. UGH I just want this process to be over. Resume revisions and buzzwords are coming out of my eyeballs

My director low-balled me on my offer and wouldn't negotiate. He got fired for doing the same thing to women on our team, now we're getting raises. Police escorted him out and I lol'd real hard

Sat in on a vendor pitch for our next creative campaign. It was so bad their saleslead actually apologized. In the moment is was super awkward but now I'm just laughing looking at their slides

Not renewing a vendor contract and their sales rep freaked. He started having a meltdown over email and tried to go above me to my boss…who shut him down and blacklisted them. Hope the guy is fired

Hired an external vendor to produce content for the first time. Just got the first iteration of a campaign and it's terrible. Worried this will be my fault since I brought them in…

Sent out an RFP for a content marketing agency to do our product launch campaign. Invited 3 applicants to pitch in our office. One mistook our director for a secretary. I lol'd watching him get thrown out
