Giving me hope! Any tips? I started around a 450 too

I'd say the easy/medium questions certainly helped me eliminate wrong answers quicker. (Hard tests are unnecessarily hard). GMAT ninja is an excellent resource for the harder questions though

How long did it take you to see an improvement?

Well I've been improving ever since I took my diagnostic tbh. But now I'm plateauing

All, this is my first post and I just want to share that I passed the first Amazon interview for Technical Program Manager and am heading to on-site virtual interviews! I have 20 years of corporate tech in a traditional F500 company (top 50). The only thing I can say that I like about my current job is the work-life balance and some of the people. But the work itself is soul crushing and the industry is stagnant. To those who are 40+ years old, is it crazy to change now?

Anyone feel YOE (like 15+) on a resume is a detractor from getting offers at either big tech or late stage startups? I’ve been in this game for a while (mainly govt gigs) and am finding it difficult to break into “big tech.” I want to change lanes from govt to commercial but when I bring up compensation it always feels so contentious, and I really cannot understand why. (Senior level: base 180k, bonus 25k, profit 45k, 100% benefits paid). My experience is dynamic, I haven’t stagnated so to speak

I posted last week about a job offer I received and whether I should take it or not. I now have another opportunity on the table. I currently make $100k and live in south Texas. Both offers are for $110k plus bonus of around $10k per year. I’m finding it difficult to really increase my salary substantially. This didn’t used to be the case. Every time I’ve ever switched positions, I’ve gotten at least 20% more. Is this common and an issue that most women face or am I going about this incorrectly?
