Did your job change after mat leave? Going on Mat leave soon and manager is thinking of bringing in a new PM to handle my vertical and having me switch to a new one. I work on enterprise connecters currently in the iPaas space and would switch to Platform, which is totally different. On one hand its a good career move & valuable experience that I couldn't interview for without prior experience. On the other, scared to move into a new area outside comfort zone with a new baby and mom brain.

What’s the worst reaction you have seen a client have to typos or syntactical errors in work product? Everyone loves to say “typos are all clients see”, “perfection is part of the job” etc. But have you actually experienced really negative client reactions based on typos? Honestly asking. I’m a 5th year and while I’ve definitely seen clients notice typos, the only time I ever saw one mad about it involved a startup founder who was predisposed to complain about everything for discounts

Current MBA, looking to go into product management. I’ve never had product experience and have to choose between a product management internship or a growth & analytics internship. I want to be a good job candidate with experience but... The PM internship’s company doesn’t have the most exciting product, but the founder said he would train me on PM responsibilities. The other company has a cool product, and is heavy on mentoring but i would not be directly involved in PM stuff. Which is better?

Any diplomatic tips to get interns/juniors to work faster? Without having ever experienced the hectic nature of being in the office, ours seem to be working at a snail’s pace (3 billable hours to copy 4 blogs over to a different platform? With no SEO or image research? Dream on... 🐌) and considering it to be working under pressure. I’m not expecting the world from them and understand it’s a learning experience... but also want them to be working faster to be able to take more on. Unreasonable?
Has anyanyone else noticed a kind of salary stagnation in tech recently? I am getting pushback on my desired salary - almost everywhere. It seems logical given my current salary and experience level and what I would want in order to leave (at least 20% increase). I think there's a trend of offering lower salaries and expecting more at the higher levels of experience. Is this anyone else's experience?
