Gave a notice to my boss after working here for 4 months. Frankly, nothing wrong with the company/boss/pay but got an offer to pivot to PM at a Series A startup. I’m bored in my role/function and excited to try PM. My company is going IPO this year so there’s a chance I’ll make some $ from it. But I’m interested in getting an early stage PM experience. My boss wants to try to find me a role while also keeping me in the team for a little longer. Should I stay? Am I crazy for jumping so soon?

You already put in notice but now you’re asking if you should stay?


If you've already given your notice how would that work? Would you rescind it?

Do what you feel is best. Ultimately you know or I don’t think you would have put your notice in already. Also I put in my notice and I’ve only been here 4 months also so no don’t feel bad about it. You do what’s best for you and your future


The fact that you’re asking here makes me wonder why you’re having second thoughts? But if your goal is to get early stage PM experience, sounds like you’re not going to get it from your current employer.


You’re bored in your role after 4 months? 🧐

Series A is pretty risky. What's their runway?

Series A is very risky. Also if you’re not a founder make sure you understand how your shares can become diluted

Anyone know any designer positions opening up on the west coast?

Usually I get asked about job referrals at Freshworks. Here's how it works. When an opening has lot of applicants and when we refer a person they are placed earlier in the queue for screening round. However the interviews and selection criterias are purely unbiased. All applicants are evaluated or shortlisted the same way.

My husband does not show affection openly and is quite lazy in bed, and I thought I could deal with it because I love him, but it’s really really beginning to annoy me.
