Any advice? i’m interviewing for a lead product role at a small startup - for context I was an associate pm a few years ago, shifted to product marketing, and looking to move back. seems like they need someone to set up a lot of their best practices and refine the roadmap/ vision- any tips on how to prep or questions you’ve heard would be appreciated!

I’d try to understand the product that the startup is building and come prepared to the interviews with lots of ideas on how the product could evolve and improve.

Hi All,

I am 12 yoe, working at a very stable product based organisation (not NEC).
But I want to switch to a better role & compensation.

I got an offer from Thoughtworks GGN as a lead consultant. Being a mother, I have anxiety about joining TW, since it is service based.

1. Bcoz of the recession and hiring is not for specific project, is it the right time to join TW or is it risky w.r.t job security?
2. How flexible is TW for WFH or it depends on the client?
3. How is WLB?

Please help..
