Has anyone else built a way in how to organised, take notes on and store their life and career progression?

I started out a small trial with Notion 2 years ago, think it's almost blowing out of hand now. Don't know how I could live without it.

So, I have an account that tracks activities I need to complete in life. (To do)

Where I try jot down weekly notes (journal)

Where I take note on interesting sites and blogs

Where I take notes from Conferences

Where I take notes from online course studies I do, to help me remember.

Where I copy over great frameworks I have built in companies over the years, to bring to my next company.

Where I note down important convos I've had and want to store the learnings.

Or where I note down prep for an interview, or an important meeting that I want to win over the competition and prep my case.

It just keeps growing.


Funnily enough it all started with slacking myself, which over time was just a long listed disorganized mess and it got on my nerves.

Give it a try. Think they have some pretty useful basic templates to get started

I don't do anything like this but now this post has me feeling like I should start. I'll have to check out Notion.

I haven't thought about doing this. What would be the purpose, exactly?

Recently our team has had a change where COO is leaving and product is being taken out of operations and put in their own silo with a new CPO. I have my first 1:1 with the CPO. This is my third supervisor switch this year. I wanted to go in with a good agenda, so that I can get what I need across and make a good first impression. I have on my list - day to day challenges, career development, and job satisfaction. Anything else I should have or advice on this!

What would you choose?

1. Take Product Manager job

B. 180k base, 0.09% stock options
C. 185k base, 0.07% stock options
(Fyi, I asked them to put the lowest base-highest equity option in the offer letter - cuz Series A - but I’m sure I can change this.)

2 Keep current job as an Operational Analytics / BI Manager:
- Late stage going IPO in spring 2022; ~$1.5b

Citi folks - new at citi and just found out that they do not provide laptops 🤯. Now I’m concerned with how the technology is otherwise? How is WLB? Do they reimburse if you purchase a laptop to use? Any insights will be greatly appreciated. TIA


Hi there! I’ve found that we have our knowledge share across multiple platforms (sharepoint, servicenow, emails) it’s not well maintained and I want to consolidate it. I’m thinking ServiceNow the obvious choice since it exists today in our infrastructure and can be tied in to our incidents but wanted to survey others to see what your company is using. X-posted

Is it a bad idea to join a startup with no potential for equity? I’ve got two solid offers on the table, both with equity included, but I’m not super passionate about the products themselves - and then one with no equity potential but I AM passionate about the product. Thoughts?


Does anyone work at Wells Fargo? If so, can you explain their title structure? I’m not sure what the equivalent is for a Principal or Lead Principal. Thanks!


I have a recruiter interview with Docusign for a product manager role. Can anyone share their experience with interviews there? How many stages? Any projects involved? Is it a great place to work at?


I’m relatively new to product and have been watching a lot of videos on YouTube to see what’s it’s like to be a PM, day in the life? It’s completely different to what I’m experiencing which is dealing with lot of issues, fire fighting, a bit of chaos. These YouTubers seem to be living a life of bliss and what looks like a chilled out role. Please tell me I’m not the only one experiencing this, otherwise I’ll start looking for another PM job


What do you think the base salary should be for a remote product manager in US/Canada with 15 years of experience in tech but around 2 years specifically in product management (w/ title head of product)

It’s live a day early! I’m guessing the PM for this site died of stress a few days ago…

Looking for referrals for a product owner / product manager consultant role. Open to both part and full time positions. Anyone looking for some additional help?

I recently became an APM this year. My org structure is pretty flat where I work with the vp of product/engineering, lead pm and director of engineering to manage the SDLC. The lead pm is going on maternity leave near the end of June and I’m about to be the only pm for a while. What would you do to best prepare yourself for the upcoming amount of ownership and responsibility I’ll be undertaking? I’d like to reduce the load on my vp as much as I can and build confidence in others. Thanks!


How are people getting promoted every 2 years at these startups? I'm at a startup too and have been kicking ass, but due to our old school mentality (CEO and leadership is ex old company) people only get promoted in like 4-5 years.
I'm tired of working so hard and owning so much scope that's P&L relevant, only to have a shitty title, sad salary and no perks.
I want a real bonus, real perks, real title bumps.
Anyone hiring?
