Received an offer from a startup for a senior technical program manager role in LA. 180k base, 20% bonus, 4000 options. I feel it’s a strong offer but should I still negotiate? Would I look greedy?

Desi folks, need help. I am frustrated with my current role, feel stuck and losing confidence every single passing day. Been job hunting for past year but no luck. Working in IT advisory but looking to move to program manager roles in tech. What are some of the companies that I can target which can offer a way out of consulting. I am starting to get minor panic attacks about not being able to change jobs.

I took a transformation lead role in industry a year go. However, my role is de facto program manager lead per internal job title. However, I wear multiple hats. I have a small team of project mgrs and oversea the deployment of transformation initiatives. I also manage the financials (cost savings) for the transformation and report that up to CFO. How do I position this experience for new opportunities? I know the stigma that comes with PMO roles so I’m worried about exit ops? Looking for advice

Customer success is cool to be near product and be in front of customers too but is it just a new name for customer support and account management? Which one would you lean to?

What are the task/exit differences between a technical program manager and a non-tech program manager? In a program manager role right now and it‘s very high level, don’t have many individual contributor tasks (which I’d prefer given I’d say I only have 3 YOE). Looking at TPM reqs though, it seems there’s a heavier emphasis on development process knowledge and compsci experience more so than just project management skills. Is this because being a TPM leads into more product mgmt/developer roles?

I’m currently 28 weeks and just had a phone interview for a new job; throughout the course of the conversation I didn’t bring up that I’m pregnant. The hiring manager said the next step would be to come in for an in-person interview, and now I’m worried that this will somehow hurt my chances (even though I know it’s technically illegal to discriminate against women for being pregnant). Has anyone else had experience with this? Should I tell them now that I am pregnant?
