I know this varies based on the company but besides project needs from the hiring manager, does anybody take multiple months between when your background check clears and you actually start? I don’t want to immediately jump from job to job but not sure if taking some time off is generally accepted.
I’m currently at a tech company but not a product manager. How would I break into the role (at any company) with no product manager experience but 6 years of work experience overall? Would I need to start as an associate and take a pay cut?
Waiting for official offer document is stressful. Interviews done. Negotiation done. Verbal offer received. Just filled out app/reference/background documents. Official offer letter is going through legal review. Working honestly on my current project, while trying to time exit is not fun. I'm trying to not sign up for more work because it will feel like a broken promise to my teammates whom I like. Plus, I wonder a little if the official offer letter will have anything outrageous in it.

Most companies offer 2 or 3 weeks vacation for new employees. Is it a big turn-off to hiring managers for a request of 4 weeks?

I think the standard 5 isn’t enough now that everyone has the chance of getting the flu and COVID.

Hey guys I’m staff2 in audit and will be promoted to senior in June. I would expect around 25-30% raise. Currently 100% remote work & don’t see going back to the office soon. Also, I need to pay 20k bonus back for breaking retention period. I recently got an offer for a valuation consultant position at mid size firm with 15% raise and go to office 3 days a week.

Part of this I’m sure is that I live by myself and am alone with my thoughts all day, part is that I’m new to the manager role. Any coping strategies??
