I joined LTI last week. My persona is Work Office. I hadn't received laptop or project details yet. Do I need to go to office daily or weekly twice? Can I change the Persona to Work from home or Hybrid for few month till I get into project? Anyone share your experiences related on this .
I’m torn. I just got a nice offer at MSFT. A good 30% bump and much better WLB. I’m married with toddler. Current firm I’m a rising star. Likely to get promoted /w same TC. Huge executive presence. Helped firm to win partner tech awards. I was recognized individually as well. What prompted to look was I’m sick of client delivery. It would be nice to be on the other side and coast but I’m scared I’m leaving too much on the table at current firm. Current pace I’m mentally exhausted and not happy.
Contemplating taking a long-term personal leave.
Eight years in.
The client work will always be there. My sanity won’t.
Any advice from those who have taken personal leave before?
How do you all make sure you are delivering value and moving the needle on each and every client call? Or is that a pipe dream? :)
I have one pro bono case that I kept when I left my firm to go in house. It’s a matter completely unrelated to my company and I have malpractice insurance through the nonprofit organization associated with the case. I’ve made clear to my client that I’m repping this client in my personal capacity. No one has asked me specifically about pro bono stuff at my company - if I know there’s no conflict of interest, is this something I should disclose? To whom should I disclose this?
What are some common pitfalls of adopting non-enterprise software? (Beyond standard security/scalability/reliability/etc.) Client seems intent on going for a solution that may backfire in the long run and cannot seem to get the message across.
I’ve posted this before and I got an overwhelming positive response and request to add more roles so I did.

Hello! After 8 yrs in med devices, I left to start my own CPG company. I've been doing that for 3 years now but everything I've made has gone back into the business. For the past 6 months I've been trying to find a job because my husbands salary can't support the family and I've been struggling to find something. We have until the end of the month before we need to start making drastic changes so I'm reaching out for help. Does anyone know any open positions for product or project managers?
If I put a TVC in my book (as an art director), what are the general assumptions of my role in the project? Are art directors usually supposed to handle set design and stuff in addition to concepting it? Should I be specific in my book as to what parts I did or didn’t do or leave that to when people ask in interviews?
🚨 Plz Help, Urgent 🚨
I currently work at Capgemini Engineering. I got allocated to a project a month back. But i have not been liking the project, work and its members at all. Now the scrum master/project manager has asked me straightaway if I am not happy with the project and would like to get a release, as the client is not happy with my progress.
I am really tensed considering the present scenario. If i ask for release from project, will I get terminated from the company? TIA 🙏

Looks like B4 partners makes the most $$ in the long run, even tech/FAANG or industry level senior roles doesn’t pay more then $600-700k, except a few roles like ceo/IB/PE/other financial roles/startup rsu (of u r lucky). Came to the conclusion after reading all the posts in this and other bowls. May be MBB, but if u add pensions, I think B4 is better. Thoughts?

Stop shaming people for leaving on time. Working overtime every nite benefits no one if you’re exhausted. It’s not a badge of honor either. Work on your time management skills.

Product Management truths
What’s the longest you’ve gone before learning you’re boss is an ass%$&*?? 18 months for me 🤮
Real Talk: everyone complains about how many apps they send in and how many interviews don’t pan out in product. I just landed my 2nd product role in 2 years with pretty minimal interviewing. I wasn’t interviewing with or looking for a role at a FAANG or the latest greatest almost unicorn but I know what I want. I don’t think I’m great at interviewing but overall (even outside of product) I’ve gotten offers with not that much work tbh. What’s your experience here?
Ive seen a few posts here where people mentioned going through burnout and then switching jobs. I am experiencing that myself, and currently on leave and working to relax and getting better myself. However, some companies contact me with interesting open roles. My question is, how did you approach the search “after” and what were the factors you valued the highest in the new role search? Id love if anyone could share about those transition experiences too. Thanks!
Hey all, looking for some advice on how to deal when expectations of what you’ll accomplish at work are through the roof and can’t possibly be met.
I’m the only PM on a new product, and am juggling long term strategy definition, execution, design & research for MVP, trying to find time to create docs/pres for communication, and still trying to learn about the space.
We’re under a lot of pressure to deliver something in two months, and I’m struggling with expectation setting and prioritizing.

Anyone working at WebMD? I have my 3rd round of interviews with 2 people and would love some advice on how to ace this, as it could be the final straw before their decision. Role: Product Manager (Remote). And does $115k/yr + 5% bonus sound decent for someone would has been a BA/PO 5+yrs? I also have a SAFE cert for PO/PM. This would be my first official role as a PM, kinda stoked about advancing into the PM world.
Would it be a mistake to go back into consulting?
I’m a PM at a B2B startup and have been in the role for over 2 years. Prior to that I was a consultant. I want to move into B2C but I’m finding it tough to get interviews, and even the few that I’ve had I’ve subsequently been rejected. Would I be better off going into product consulting to help my chances? Or would that make going into product again that much more harder?
I’m starting a new position as an internal IT Prod Manager moving from a BA role. I’m finding I need to also play BA, Scrummaster, and now Technical Project Manager. I assume it’s normal for a PM to wear these many hats?
