I have not, but want to make sure you've read Cracking the PM Interview. It's a gamechanger.

They are probably going to want to know how you would handle certain situations. Study everything you can about the company and the position, including how they handle things and what tools they use. That way when you answer, you'll have something to discuss and build on that they are already familiar with.

I’ve been through 5+ weeks of interviews with a company that will IPO next year and they did a bait and switch on me with the offer: it was advertised as “Head of” and then during the offer-walk-through-meeting today they said “oh btw we changed the title to ‘Senior Manager’ for this role”. They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?

I’ve been looking for an in-house position for years now and I’m emotionally worn out. I got through numerous rounds of interviews with one company recently, only for them to pass. I’ve cried and prayed over this, finally realizing that it may not be in the cards for me. I hate my firm and law firms, so I’m trapped. It just sucks because I’m an over-achiever but I’m failing miserably at my legal career. Did anyone have any luck with landing an in-house job after years of trying? Any advice?
