No director/SM from big 4 has joined Google at L8 or higher. Your best bet is L7. Most likely L6. In both cases your TC will be higher than what you make currently.

Would you enjoy that role more? If yes, and pay is better go for it. If you are not passionate about being a PO then leave it.

There's not enough info to say. Ask what level and salary range they are targeting.

I'd assume if you have the correct skills, you'd get L6/ L7, which is very senior in PM world.

MDs / small companies CEOs typically come in at L7.

What is your current compensation? Are you making over 500k / 600k? If so, probably not worth your time then.

- partner & SM support
- current manager has not been performing well, recently joined the firm a few months back from industry

I recently had an interview for an Analyst role in VCA. I didn’t do too well in the case study but feel confident in the behavioral/situation interviews.

Also anyone have insight on the timeline for decisions after final interview? Is it possible to get an offer?
I really want this position and disappointed in myself for screwing up but still hoping. TIA
