How tough is it to break into a FAANG PM role at mid-level if you have less prestigious experience? I have 10+ YOE in product, but some was at a tiny meh startup that fizzled out, some was in the digital wing of a large old healthcare org, and though my current role is GPM at a “name brand” tech company, it’s on the smaller side. Went to a good-but-not-Ivy school. What qualifications and experience are FAANG companies looking for when hiring mid-level PMs? Can I break in at mid-level from here?

Hi. I’m looking for advice. I recently interviewed for a job with the EPA. The hiring manager and team seems like it would be a good fit and I would be working on projects that would be what I want to be doing as a career. The job description has not been written up yet. How likely would the job be remote versus telework? My boyfriend has said he would not want to relocate. It almost seems like a cliché situation and I would be very conflicted about moving away from him.

Hello, I have received offer letter from EY LLP for Manager position.
There is a bonus component over and above the CTC mentioned in offer letter.

When asked, HR conveyed the below, verbally.
'Bonus is between 10-20% depending on performance. Usually 15% on an average.'

1) This bonus range (10-20%) is not mentioned in the offer letter. Is this usually the case?

2) Are people in EY receiving the bonus right from the first year on the job or is there some extra t&c I was not made aware?

He's looked at inhouse legal roles but often they want someone with commercial rather than corporate law experience.

Thanks in advance!
