Discussion on: What are the big differences between working for a "tech company" and being a dev for a "non-tech company"

I like to start by boiling it down as much as possible.

Managers all want to know when it's gonna be done & how much it will cost (even the highly technical ones!), so I like to start with those two messages in mind, and then expand as necessary from there. I usually don't expand at all from there, to be honest. It's nicer and easier for both parties to let them ask the questions after you present the facts.
