Anyone here with experience as a Product Manager? I’ve close to decade of consumer lending experience including Sales/Advisory, Supervisor and Underwriting. I have have been looking to pivot into a more impactful role this year. I am due for an interview for a Product Manager next week. The company ticks all my boxes but the job description a bit vague. I will be grateful if anybody willing to share what the day role looks like and what I need to look out for in an interview. Thanks. Cheers.
Made it to the final round of interview at a Branding Agency... I have to present a case study that shows my approach thru 'branding lens' - they gave me a slide deck with such minimal info and I have to present in a few days. Can anyone give me some tips on working on a deck for branding specific case study? I'm coming from tech background so would appreciate the advice!
Has anyone else had a mentor (assigned to them by the Company) who seemed to have it out for you? I mean downright sabotage to make you look bad left and right. I didn’t realize it at first. She was fake friendly, but she was discrete too. Some of the executives thought she was amazing, but I had to clean up her work all the time. She wasn’t above me either on the chain of command. Later I found out she had tried for the exec assistant role and they didn’t choose her, they wanted me instead.
Had 20+ interviews at a company over the past 3 mos. final round was 2.5wks ago, & all recruiter has said is the team loves me, it’s taking longer on their end. Do I follow up again? So frustrated!
Got ghosted after a final round interview with a unicorn startup. I had a very hands on interview and showed them detailed code examples and architecture diagrams. Maybe I gave away too much? The interviewers seemed really impressed. The cynical thought I have is they're doing interviews just to find answers to the problems they haven't been able to solve. Why else would they ghost me? Everything seemed to be going so well until now.
I have cleared the interview at TCS for java developer role. My current ctc is 4.5 lpa with 5+ years of experience. I started my career in non tech profile then switched to technical roles in the same company hence my package is too low.

I'm interviewing for Sr Product Design positions & each interview is 30 minutes to share 2 case studies. With only 12 min/case study (I eat up some time introducing myself & setting up the work), does anyone have advice on what to make sure I show? It's so hard to hit all the points they I'm trying to hit: problem definition through user research, wireframes, design exploration, usability tests, prototypes, final designs, red lines, engineering handoff, KPIs. Any advice or examples?
Indecisive about relocating to
Bangalore and applying for a
relocation to Kolkata instead. I am a
fresher who joined at the beginning
of this year (staffed in project) and
my base location is Bangalore,2days wfo. The
primary reason to move to Kolkata
being the cheaper cost of living.
FOMO the life/culture in Bangalore
and job opportunities there, are the
reasons why I haven't asked for a
location change yet. I anyways plan
on moving to Bangalore once I can
afford it. What would be a better

Applying to T15 in R2. Currently have a 700 GMAT (43Q, 41V) after taking once. Even if I raise my quant to 47, which would be impressive for me, I’ll still be at a 700 (possibly 710). 3.6 undergrad GPA. Worth retaking? Or just focus on the rest of my applications?
Negotiation advice - I’m interviewing for a marketing position internally (no direct reports). I’m currently a sales applications manager (10 direct reports). This is considered a lateral move at my company. Because of my sales role, comp is broken up between base and commission target. The marketing position is mostly base with an annual bonus. Here’s my “dilemma” - my total comp right now exceeds the top of the salary range for the marketing position. (Continued below)

How does one tell their boss (owner of the company) that you are burnt out? The sheer volume of work is exhausting and I haven’t taken a true vacation as we are a small company so if something urgent comes to my email I feel like I must respond. I was given an additional title and more responsibilities last year as well but only a 3% raise for it.

Hey fellow Disney Lovers,
I generally have a few lessons in which I can use Pixar shorts to teach students how to identify and discuss literary signposts, how to identify and explain the development of theme, character traits, and other narrative elements. What are some of your favorite shorts? I am trying to incorporate activities where my students get to choose their own clips for independent practice with these skills and need a variety to draw from.

Gusto I’m a product designer hoping to switch industries from the public sector to private. I am struggling because I’m starting to see a lot of pushback on the fact that I don’t have industry specific work. So I’m really curious how much working in a specific industry effects your career path.
I’m looking at some fintech jobs but ultimately want to work in hrtech? Like gusto, lattice, etc. would that potentially prevent that switch?

For the last four weeks or so of WFH I’ve been making it to my desk around 7:30/8am and working basically without a break—lunch at desk- but cannot maintain momentum past like 6:30/7:30pm. Most of the day is billable work, but I cannot bring myself to finish outstanding assignments after 8pm, but then feel so guilty when I’m not working past that time. Am I burnout or fucked up? (Also I hate this gig & am not in it for the long haul, just hate not turning things quickly)
I hate marketing. But I tell people how great a career it is. I've been in this industry for 10 years and I want to get out but don't want to take the pay cut.

What does it mean if you get feedback such as “know the room better?” I came across a team email that was addressed to my account team, and I approached my boss about my response to it. Then he gave me this feedback and told me not to engage in the conversation. Funny thing is a strategy lead just responded back to the team with the exact response I came up with, and my boss agreed with her...
