I have a ton of clients on my list. Some are not as active as others but it is a lot. Over 40 and I work in a complex industry with lots of moving parts. My role is more of a combination of product manager and client relations manager. I'm feeling exhausted because there is no system to really track client projects or requests beyond email. I feel like things are easy to miss and just had a situation where I missed a request and the follow up. I get over 200 emails a day minimum.

Bringing this topic to the broader bowl: why is product manager at a big tech deemed a more respectable role than an internal Consulitng/biz ops role?

Can someone explain to me the reason behind MBA grads flocking to PM path vs. say google biz ops?
