It's ok. I do too.

Formatting mistakes drive me crazy. It was meant to be with this job.

Got this feedback all the time - you need to work on your "presentation" skills. Pain in the ...

Anyone have any tips? This is impacting my performance reviews

Following for tips

I've made a checklist, I've set aside time to solely go though documents for formatting, but every single time it's "this is the wrong format"

Try and maximize your use of relevant graphics. Use flow charts when you have processes or methodologies involved. If you have lots of numbers, try and highlight how the numbers are relevant to the topic and bold/italicize them. Use the PWC colors in your deck - either in font color or background color...the likes of this

Also! Avoid empty real estate on your slide. Nothing annoys a M/SM than empty space that they could possibly use to BS

@D1 its not PowerPoint it's word

little stuff but when creating/ editing, use grid lines to make sure everything lines up correctly and then read out loud when you are editing

Peer review!!

Would you say Austin’s real estate market will go through a correction in 2022? I am considering there in a few months (wife and 3 kids) from a normal-priced city.

I’ve read both bull and bear scenarios online and I’d like to get some “Bowl’s” thoughts. Thanks!

Hello all.

How is this as first-time PM offer at Series A? It’s for the company’s first PM hire.

Three options:
175k base and 0.112% equity
OR
180k base and 0.096%
OR
185k base and 0.079%

Want to try PM and I’m excited. Which would you take?

TC now is 190k base and some pre-ipo stocks as a BI Manager. Current company is expecting IPO in ~June (not vested any yet because I joined in October 2021). I want to take the middle offer but maybe I should go big and get more Series A equity? Thnx

I’m afraid if retaliation if I keep pushing. Looking for suggestions on what I can do.
