Got contacted for a position at one of the best investment banks for product management. Would this be a way to get into FAANG?

It will vary by FAANG with amazon the most feasible option and Google the least. Considering the intensity of competition by PMs at high growth start ups that look to join, I would say the chances are pretty slim to get a PM role at those firms unless you have a differentiator

Software Sales question: I just got a job offer to join a post-Series A with under 20 employees. On the equity piece, I was offered .1% equity at a $142m valuation. This is a Senior / Director Sales role where I'll be blending IC duties + managing a team as we grow. I felt this offer was a bit low from the equity side. Anyone know how to evaluate this?

Hi there! I’m being vetted for a position that I’d have to relocate for, they mentioned they’d pay for relocation. This would be my first role in senior leadership, and I’m just looking for tips on negotiating pay and other components of my offer letter. I’ve previously had an issue where I was brought in way under value, and it took 2 years to get a benchmarking raise. I just want to position myself highly upfront this time. Any ideas other than base pay I could and should negotiate? Thanks!

I’m all for sleeveless outfit (as long as not overly revealing) is acceptable for women in non-client facing video calls but interestingly I’ve never seen any man going sleeveless in front of the camera (myself included). Are guys just less comfortable in this situation (again, same situation as girls - internal calls, working from home, and working out or doing house chores in between meetings... etc)? How do you feel when you see your guy coworkers in sleeveless outfits?
