Product Management - I am somewhat interested in trying to move into product management. I have led internal analytics product development at a prior firm, and have led clients through developing/improving “products” for their teams to use however I have not led “consumer facing” products and my experiences have not been as “formal” as many PM roles ask for. I work in healthcare and would want to stay there. I’m wondering if others have any thoughts on these transitions.

Do things like the $1500 gift from Microsoft get lumped into "benefits"? And are there any companies that you should expect more things like that from, and is it a significant factor when taking a job?
As a first generation college graduate, first one to land a job in Corp. America, there’s so much that I wasn’t prepared for like 401k, investing, along with other things that increase your TC that aren’t bonuses or your base salary or how to diversify your income. I’m 25 and I feel like there is SO much I still don’t know. Any good book recommendations/youtubers/podcasts that helps navigate this?

Advice needed! Have just been asked to Freelance with W2 form. Without any benefits. Is this even possible? Would I lose my eligibility for Unemployment insurance once the gig ends? I was laid off from my full time agency job 2 months ago and have already freelanced as self employed on an LLC since. Seems like they’re being tight and taking advantage of the current climate.

I was offered $108k for a designer role at chiat\day LA. Is that good? Should I have asked for more given today’s market? I’m looking for reasons to give up my freelancing lifestyle and was hoping for a title bump, which I didn’t get. I’m super unfamiliar w the advertising market and used to be a product designer. Took a pay cut to do more creative work, but if I can get back the salary I had, I would.
I feel like I’m under constant stress at work in Big4. Is this just Big4 life or would I experience constant high stress outside of Big4? Not sure if it’s just a culture shock after graduating from doing two degrees at uni.

Anyone have insight into Citi's WLB and culture? Got an offer to join their Digital team. Comp is basically where I am now (lower bonus percentages actually), but would be more of the work I like (from PMO to product). Culture and work hours will be a huge factor in my decision.
