What kind of company is best for building long-term wealth?
Public companies offering RSUs, private, etc? Heard private (startups) are risky.

Top public tech companies create millionaires out of average employees all the time. If you can get a solid initial RSU package and refreshers from them you’re golden. You can also use those as leverage to get more from your next employer. Perhaps once you’ve done that try your hand at a start up. All depending on your risk tolerance


Public is probably the best option on average. Startups are always a risk,. but a good one could make you rich overnight. It's all a gamble.


Public companies with RSUs for sure (though you’ll get wayyy more equity in an eng role). Risk averse, and you’re not paying for any of the stock. Also take full advantage of the benefits and contribute the max amount for 401k match.


+1 forthis, something I learned too late and always regretted it

I’m interested in becoming a product manager but I don’t think I have the right background. My background is in enablement/product training/L&D. I don’t have a technical background. I work closely with the PMs at my current company and would love to get to do what they do. Is it possible to be a product manager without a technical background? Are there any certification type programs that could boost my credentials and employers would actually care about? Or is this transition a pipe dream?
