I have been building saas products for FAANG for last 8 years. I still think that building website for small businesses will bring more money than what I make from my full time high paying job.

I am looking for sales people who can just go door to door and get client.

Think of this way, if we get 1000 customer and making 100$ each customer, we will make 100k per month and as per my experience 20k at max can go to infra cost. We would be able to make 80k profit.

Someone from another department tried to brief my teams in on their project with zero context, info, or details for them to put together a creative response. I told them to supply that information first and that they could brief the team once they do and that I'd be happy to help.

They then spat the dummy and went straight to my boss saying I was not cooperating and making their job difficult. I've now got a meeting with my boss about this EOW.

How do I approach this / what do I say?

Hi all, been interviewing at Google for an L5 PgM S&O role.

Cleared 5 interviews and recruiter informs me I'm going to HC.

Two questions here:
1. What happens now? Should I expect an offer?
2. If the role is based in SF, am I able to negotiate for NY?
3. I'm 5 YOE and interviewed for an L5 role. What's the likelihood I am downlevelled?


Thank you!
