Feel like I missed the boat years back to get into Director of Product role. Back in the day there was only Senior in between a Director role, now there’s Lead and Group levels, so much hierarchy now.

I can understand SPM -> GPM -> Director but what’s Lead doing there? Seems like too much tbh

For sure! My understanding of PM levels is mostly from the image below.

My confusion came from the Lead level: at my startup, we’ve got SPM -> Lead, and leads report to the CPO. I hear that Stripe follows something similar as well, abstracting all the higher PM levels to just Lead. To me it seems like having too many people manager levels would slow things down, but I’ve only worked at startups so my perspective is definitely limited.

Hello,

I made it to a third round interview for an operations manager position at JP Morgan Chase. I’m meeting with the director and a couple other members of the team. I was told the third interview is the last and final interview before an offer is extended. Has anyone ever made it to the their final interview and not been offered the job? I know anything is possible but I’m pretty anxious.
