Is it an app (mobile or desktop)? There are lots of resources out there on how to study for product mgt interviews- the questions may focus on product strategy + product design as it relates to the app or app feature you’ll be working on. Learn everything about that company’s product or products and be prepared to answer how you can improve them to increase the company’s goals and consumer needs (experience)

I have an interview for a position at Slalom coming up for Slalom Emerge and was wondering what I should be expecting. I had a pretty good chat with the recruiter and I'm happily employed as is, but I'm always happy to test the waters. Any insights into the job, interview, negotiations process, working environment, culture, travel, etc.? It would be in the integration area. Thanks!

What’s your take on counteroffers? I recently was offered a role at a growing company (Recent IPO) with what looks like a bright future. The downside is it’s a lat move doing sim work with small increase to base but additional bonus and RSUs that won’t vest for 3 years. Main reason I was leaving current role was due to boredom and wanting a change. Recent restructuring at current place has opened opp’s and they countered with a promotion and 30% bump with all new responsibilities/path. Thoughts?
