I’m thinking:
1) sit down and intro chat with the project leader
2) maybe ask how the PL likes communication cadence/management style?

Find the biggest one and punch them in the face

Hey there! I am looking for advice on what positions someone with my experience and background can move into. So, maybe a career a shift. I have 15 years of experience as a graphic designer/art director/creative manager. I feel like I want to move away from being the do-er. I still want to be creative in some way, but maybe not all day long. I love coming up with the big ideas behind a project. I’m also interested in other fields, not just design. Thoughts? Any experience with a career shift?

Hi Fishes,

Please suggest a good answer for below Project Manager post related questions.

1. How will you manage a running project if it is getting over budget?

2. What will you do if you want to deliver a project in a week but all decided modules are not ready? There is a scenario where you cannot ask the team to work on the weekend and cannot ask for daily extra work.

I want to take more brainstorming, decision making responsibilities but I don’t see that in the career path for PM. Career path usually goes like this- Sr PM, Director l, Sr Director, and so on. But all do same work.

How to evaluate 0.01% ownership of a startup? Let’s say their “equity component” is 0.01 of a series B ($130M funding) startup, then that’s $100k even if their valuation is $1B. For my equity to be worth anything, what it’ll take is for the series B startup to grow to $10B valuation and actually able to fetch that valuation in an IPO (so it’s not just over-valued private stock). Even Notion is just $10B valuation and probably overvalued. So, isn’t this 0.01% ownership thing ridiculous?
