Refreshing my product’s vision and came across this absolute gem that I buried in a footnote last year:

“If you get above 70% CSAT for enterprise software you get a lucite plaque and are written about in ‘Inc.’ magazine”

Greetings all.

I currently work in consulting, planning on transitioning to Big Law. I’m speaking with a recruiter who has been quite proactive. No interviews at the moment. I plan on sending cold networking emails to partners/associates (mostly POCs) with whom I share some starter connections, meet for coffee and see where things go.

Any tips you can share with me on how best to manage this? There invariably will be a lot of rejections but I believe all I need do is get it right once.

Hi Fishes

I gave google silicon interview all 4 rounds 3+ months back, from then they are saying they want to hire me but headcount approval is not yet received.
Last week they said, lets go for one more round and finalize immediately. That interview also went very good.
Post that they didn't call back itself, they have stopped responding also.

Has anybody faced this issue? This I feel completely unprofessional and not really expected from Google.

Thanks

Hey all - I currently work as PM at a NY agency. However, I went to school in Boston and my partner is from the North Shore. We’re thinking about making the move back to Boston early next year.

If anyone has worked in NY as well I’d love to hear about how the two cities are different from an ad industry perspective.

I am loving this so much more than project management and I’m very eager to learn more! I was curious what are some of the best books,articles, courses that have helped you grow the most? And do you have any other tips and recommendations for someone just starting out in this career path?

Thank you in advance!

Any suggestions would be appreciative! :)

Thoughts on becoming a "Growth & New Initiatives PM"?

I was a regular PM managing my own vertical and now have the opportunity for a new role in the org. No promo or cash related, just jurisdiction wise.

I'd be focusing on:
For old product-
-Free Trial
-automation
For new product-
-Building out from scratch
-UI/UX related user feedback
-sales and marketing focus
-use cases and features

Is this a good move career wise? Love being a PM and looking to grow.
Prefer new product > old
