Tech company lay offs….are they soon to be inevitable?!

There is lots of companies really taking a hit in the tech space. Is this something that people are nervous about? Many seem to still be having a hiring push but with the button falling (IMO this is still just start we have a long way to go to bottom out) will that halt and layoffs ensue? And if so, which depts do you think will get hit the hardest?

Anyone have insight to what the plan is at UpStart for example?

Hello fellow PM's! I'am currently applying for new remote jobs and a few of the hiring processes include an interview with CTOs. What should I expect from that?

For context, it's not a technical PM jobs and the job description states that they are ok with Business Grads. I can do some python and SQL but mostly for data Analytics (Pandas and Numpy libraries for instance). I can also deal with HTML and CSS for website development but I would say I am a noob at this point.

Thanks a lot!

Hi all! Any advice on how to shift your mindset from being in middle management (more execution and delivering on what you’re asked to do and expecting a tap on the back for a good job) to a more strategic role where you need to think big, innovate and drive your own ideas? I feel this is what is holding me now to make the next step in my career and would love to know if there are any tools or helpful resources out there?

I got a remote L6 SWE offer at Google but the RSUs are too low for that level ($625k over 4 years), could not negotiate it higher.

Recents accepted a verbal offer from a recruiter for a promotion to a lead position. When I receiver the offer letter it was for $1 less per hour than what was stated over the phone. I went back to the recruiter and told him this and was told “If I did say that amount that isn’t correct” and that the calls weren’t recorded. I’ve already been waiting a month for an offer and I know it’s a small dollar amount of a difference but I can’t help but feel like I was lied to. Would you withdraw or no?
