Hi all, need some advice here, like a lot of others here, Google is definitely a dream company for me to work at. I come from a non-technical background, currently working as a project manager + associate product manager (20% project situation) at a SaaS company. I would really appreciate the input on my chances for a Program manager/ associate product manager role. Also, what are some of the key skills that are utilized extensively in these roles, which google considers a great asset?

What do people think about the casual blazer over t-shirt look / attire (for men) at the office in the summers?
Not for deliverable presentations or client exec. meetings of course. But would it be ok to wear any day of the week to the office?

Hi all - would love some insight! About a year ago I switched to a client and product growth director role and am now thinking about doing my EMBA. Reason being, would want to eventually move into an executive or potentially head of growth role. The cost obviously is a huge factor but wondering if anyone has a perspective on whether it’s worth doing? I think at a certain point in a career it makes sense but curious if people think they are “still”worth such a crazy investment of money and time.
Can anyone recommend a good headhunter that has experience in placing agency strategists on the client side (not just agency only)?
