During interview, can you ask if the company has plan to go IPO or is that bad question to ask?

I wouldn't think it's bad to ask. Plans for an IPO would mean more work in the future, and likely an overall change to the job once they're public, so I think that's a reasonable question

Fair question to ask. “Is there an IPO timeline and what has the company started doing to prepare”

I have a principal PM offer at a Series C startup for $260k total comp + $150k in stock over 4 years and start in 8 weeks.

Experienced hire Manager here, informed before Christmas that I’ll be taking another lap but not because of performance (5/5 on scats and all operating at next level) or metrics (22mm in MR) but the only reason is I need more time in the “saddle”… During this time, I’ve been replying to recruiters and after a PPMD interview last week, I was offered an SM role at a smaller firm with a base pay increase of 45% (225k) over my current salary. Very much considering this… thoughts?

I’m interviewing for a tech exit and one of the panel interviewers is an ex-Deloitte SM that is basically best friends with the partner I work under frequently. The ex-Deloitte SM said they wouldn’t mention that I’m interviewing to the partner. The hiring manager from the tech exit basically said I had the job if I want it. What are the chances the ex-Deloitte SM tells the partner and vetos my hire at the tech exit out of respect for their friend?
