Good point SC1, but new hires are indeed eligible from day one.

Congrats! Talk to your recruiter. Probably best to let your PDM know once you’ve completed onboarding training so you can be staffed on a study of appropriate length to accommodate your leave.

Thanks! I was thinking it would be most effective to have this conversation with my PDM once onboarding is complete, as that first study decision could be impacted (depending on length).

Hired as Product Marketer. Now manager wants me to “own all strategic partners.” If you were asked to take over partner marketing activities, what pros and cons would you see to having those responsibilities?

I haven’t worked with partners much, and it has never been an interest. However, maybe the company thinks partnerships will be a big source of revenue (I am trying to find out from a C-level).

My manager thinks partner marketing won’t take more than 25% of my time. Not sure I believe it.

At what point is it reasonable to push back on the amount of work being assigned to you? When can you say "I don't have time to complete this."?
