Venting… I had a PC reach out last week for services (commercial real estate) who proceeded to tell me that their project is going to make me the “gold standard” , so rich and etc. further they wanted me to send them a plan of everything needed for all the phases of development and an estimated cost. The call completely drained me and rubbed me the wrong way. Then they brought up my age and me being younger, saying it’s an opportunity of a life time. It felt extremely condescending.

I’ve been interviewing with Google since July. Passed the first interview but the team I was matched with ended up hiring someone else.

Is it normal for a Product Owner to lay out specs for how a feature should work?
