    Is my next job at a startup or big tech?

    Is my next job at a startup or big tech?

    In my third episode of live coaching sessions, this caller was feeling dissatisfied with their narrow scope of role and lack of cultural fit in their current company. The caller wanted guidance on what their next role should be, given their personal situation and professional ambition.

    Their situation captures a difficult choice facing many superstars: seeking a sizable impact rarely found outside of startups, while also craving the compensation only late-stage companies can afford. We discuss the frameworks and strategies required to approach this career choice wisely.

    Privacy is paramount for these calls, so we have anonymized the content and received permission from the caller to ensure no personal or sensitive information is disclosed.

Career Strategy for Product

This podcast is unique among product podcasts in that it really focuses on an individual’s journey through product and how to be intentional in career choices. Its narrower in focus in that way, instead of trying to tackle the broad array of product topics. That niche is really valuable to me.

This is a must for any PM

Love your podcast and the coaching topics you have. Your in depth knowledge of the role, struggles and opportunities are invaluable for your audience. I have an executive coach who helps me through some of the shadows you’re exploring here but not from the perspective of a PM. So I love complementing the advice I get there with your lessons shared here. Please continue this format and podcast, it’s making all us better PMs and leaders.
