I'm a 2nd year MBA at a top 10 school in the US. Have 5 years of experience as a Software Engineering Lead in the Bay Area and interned as a Product Manager at BCG Digital Ventures. Looking for referrals for Product Manager/similar roles at Uber, Lyft, Slack, Netflix, Facebook, Apple, Dropbox, Intuit, Airbnb, Salesforce, Microsoft, Wayfair. Would be even better if I could connect with/get referrals from current product managers/hiring managers. Also appreciate advice on other companies I could apply to. Looking for roles in the US and need sponsorship. Thanks in advance for your time and support.

      Thank you. Definitely understand that not everyone is comfortable with referring folks they haven't worked with.

      I do have a good network but not as many Product Managers in my network as I would like. I was hoping to get in touch with Product Managers/Hiring Managers through this post.

    MBB is old story. Software Team Lead sounds like you are the only non-tech on the team and trying to โ€œorchestrateโ€.

      Also to your earlier point USNWR lists UCLA in top 10 not the Anderson school of management. That's #16 on the ranking

    • Microsoft / Product CloudSmith
      And UCLA Anderson school is #26 on FT rankings too. Don't mislead the thread. Looks like you're the troll or went to UCLA

      Didnt go to UCLA. Just work with a lot of Anderson people. Sorry my 3 seconds of googling weren't up to standard.

      Not at UCLA. US News Top 10 to clarify but I personally don't think the rankings mean too much. Hoping to connect with Product/Hiring managers.
