I’m an L3 SWE — up for promo this cycle with strong ratings.

I’m confident that the SWE career isn’t for me — not as an IC or as a manager. I want to be doing more high-level business/product strategy work and eventually manage people.

I’ve been doing a 20% project as a PM and have discussed ladder transfer with my current L6 PM Manager and a GPM. Need the promo first.

I have an offer to join BCG as an Associate and have been pre-admitted into the Wharton MBA 2+2 program.

What would you do?

L4 then promo. MBA depends on your l/t goals. It’s useful (imo), but if you return it’ll likely be in an L4 role.

L4 pm is a great gig and imo you should take it!

Hey everyone! I am a student finishing up my last year at university. I was working in real estate and then became a loan officer for 2 years. I made a switch from mortgages to a food supply wholesaler as a regional sales/project manager managing the accounts for a couple states. I thought it would be pretty steady compared to how volatile interest rates and the finance realm is rn. Can anyone offer insight into the food supply market right. Ik everything is pretty crazy and it’s all relative.🤝

Do interview questions at google, especially for S&O roles lean more towards asking about past experience (tell me about a time when) or hypothetical (what if abc happened)? I don’t have a strategy / ops background (I’m coming from finance) but I’ve studied a lot of case studies etc and think I could do great in hypothetical and case study questions. But maybe not the past experience questions, because I just haven’t run into all these scenarios
