What are some good books to read, materials or classes about how to be a more effective PM? And about communication management, recos are gladly accepted.
At what level in account management do you start getting bonuses or commission on how much your book of business grows? Is this something I should be negotiating in offer letters?
I want to become a better people manager. I haven’t ever gotten any formal training in this and now my career will demand it. Any training, conferences, books you good folks recommend?
Looking to learn more about growth product management. Any recs for articles/people to follow/videos/books to learn more about this type of PMing?
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
Book recommendation: can anyone recommend a good leadership book for aspiring (not current) people managers? Perhaps on how to get to the leadership level, or how to lead effectively as an IC. Cheers!
Looking for pharma-specific market access/product launch/life cycle management books/textbooks! Total rookie in this space. Thank you!
I was asked by a friend for a few management consultant books (similar to liar's poker in the finance industry) to check out. The only one I can think of is Peter Drucker's Adventures of a Bystander (good but not too much consulting)... any suggestions! 😁
Which books would you recommend to a product counel for tech startup about strategy, management, and leadership?
Hello! I am looking to get into Product Management. Does anyone have any advice on the best way to get into it? Best certifications to take? Any books or courses as well? Any insight would be helpful. Thanks!
Can anyone recommend me insightful books which can help consulting/career but not with titles like “how to be a successful manager” etc.
Recommendations for books and podcasts on business, strategy, management, etc. that have helped your career?
Looking for book recommendations (non fiction) - leadership, management or science/world related
How do you improve selling-idea skill as an analyst? For example, if I have a tech idea, how do I communicate that to non-tech people (manager and above). Any learning resouces that I take a look? Books, videos, courses? :)
One of our older advisors is about to retire so his book will be split amongst us junior advisors. What can I do to pitch myself to him and to management to earn the bigger accounts?
Hi all, I’m looking for ways to develop myself professionally. I would love recommendations or tips on how you continue education in your field to stay relevant and continue to learn about different marketing strategies. Any tips on really good conferences, programs, classes, books, would be so so appreciated. I’m currently a senior manager for local marketing activations on a planned path to become a director. Thank you!
Any tips for developing a book of business, particularly in management-side Labor and Employment? For example, any networking groups or organizations that have been helpful (and were they legal-related, general industry, or community groups like Junior League or non-profit Boards)? I’ve talked to some of the male partners in my group, and many of them got lucky through pre-existing relationships (college friends, brothers-in-law, etc.). I need to expand my network but want to maximize returns.
Considering looking for a new sales management role. I’ve only had “promote from within” sales manager roles where I started as an IC and continue to manage my book while selling. I’d like to make a switch and start in a management only role. Any recommendations on companies? I have 6 years of top producing IC sales experience and a little over 4 years of management experience.
Best books about product management for a good exit to industry? I already have an MBA and PMP but looking for a refreshed perspective since it’s been years since my formal education. Currently reading “Product Managements Sacred Seven” but it’s geared toward the startup world. I am in healthcare and not looking for a startup role. TIA!!!
What are some highly recommended people / team management books? Leading my first team right now and am looking for insight into conflicting personalities, working styles, etc.
Anyone have any insights to the accelerated MBA program at Kellogg? Interested to hear experiences and if it’s worth it over the traditional two year MBA
Microsoft CE salary for dc area?
I have left Deloitte after accepting another offer ( waiting to start the new role and taking time off between) . Now another dream role reached out to me for an interview. Should I tell them I am no longer with Deloitte if the HR asks? They had my old resume. Has anyone been though this situation? My main dilemma is I don’t know what to say why I left the job since the main reason was the new offer.
You think I can hit 1K by end of the year? I only have 20 days left. How can I best do a heart-mileage run?
Should I time travel? I’m so bored of daily play I’m eager to catch new fish & bugs yet at the same time, I don’t want to miss out on anything lol.
How does Deloitte corporate Amex work? Am I expected to use it for all travel? Or can I book hotels etc on personal and expense them later. If it matters, I am joining FDD practice
Delta announced that they’re fining unvaccinated employees $200 a month. Probably easier to just mandate vaccines for anyone who flies on their airline, but this is a good step.
How do you deal with a teammate that creates unnecessary work for themselves and others and then acts passive aggressive towards the team? Example - MD has already reviewed and signed off on the document and their feedback was incorporated. Teammate then takes 3 hours to change a ton of the content before sending to client.
Hello, I am a Software Engineer with 14 months experience and plan to switch to the role of a Product Owner. I've been a part of Scrum teams throughout my tenure as a Software Engineer. I'm doing a course on Business Foundations and plan to take the PSPO certification exam. Are there any other steps that I need to take to make the transition? Also, is the transition at all feasible given my around 1.5 years of work experience?
Is anyone else in credit card debt?
Alitalia telling people to not bring luggage on their flights because they can’t guarantee it will actually make it on the plane is my new favorite flavor of “rolling off a project” vibes.
Anyone have any thoughts on using Venmo for crypto purchases / wallet? Seems like it’s not at sophisticated, e.g., very few coin options and likely no interest for holding. Any red flags? It appears their new credit card will take the cash back you earn from purchases and auto invest in the coin (limited) of your choice. Seems intriguing but will admit I am a noob to the space
Just joined Accenture and went through day 1 onboarding. They mentioned I gotta use the corporate Amex but I've heard of people using their personal cards for booking travel/hotels. Is that "allowed"?
I'm pretty sure I'll be laid off come Q4 (I'm needed for a critical project that ends Q3 but that's it). I'm planning on doing my MBA in 2022. Do I take a "gap" year in 2021 or do I job hunt in 2021?
Deciding that next year (ideally before) is my cut off for leaving this job; whether it’s through a new career path, manual labor or just quitting without a backup plan. My mental health deserves better, sticking it out for one more year as I aim to to be vested in my 401K and save up for 6-9month emergencies. I feel insane for leaving consulting especially with only 1-2 YOE but it’s just not worth it anymore.
On the flipside, who is the worst person you have worked with? Why? (Co-worker, client, manager, etc..)
Evaluate the industry offer: Currently a strategy director with 11 yoe. CPG Industry offer: 220k/25% bonus/75k LTI/HCOL city
So with all the chat on here about how easy it is to get hired, are you as a hiring manager putting more emphasis into screening and challenging interviewees than before as a response? I ask because I successfully went through an interview process and have no idea how a candidate who wasn’t well versed in the cases, practice, and even consulting exp would be able to pass.
