I’d go to industry at this point or a specialty boutique. I don’t agree with staying two years if you feel you’re not growing. Especially if this is your first job, you can jump now and basically start over vs. waiting 2 years where you may have a harder time doing that and or waste time staying an extra year to only go back to the beginning

Hard sell if you have no real skills still

Yes bad. Don't jump wait for 2 at minimum

You can leave early. I am leaving early, but I would strongly advise against going to another consultancy. Would be better to go to a vendor or corporate first

I’ve been interviewing for Director of Product Marketing roles at late stage startups in hyper growth mode. In my last 2 hiring manager interviews, they’ve not asked me any questions outside of having me share a bit about myself. I was in the earlier days of a FAANG company, so perhaps there’s an assumption they already know how I’d build/lead a team or execute. Both have wanted to offer the time for me to ask them questions with little questions in return. Is this expected or lack of prep?
