Interested to see, but which would you pick and why:

Keeping all things constant (pay, salary, benefits, location etc.) Not factoring in team at the moment because that changed the experience, but just based on company and role.

Hey all, transitioned from the military last spring and got a UX product manager position at a bank.

Pay is good, but missing the mission aspect of work. Have interview offers from Microsoft and Amazon for cleared PM work, but most of them are less product manager work and more adjacent program work.

This might just be grass is greener thinking, but would love to hear if you have made the transition if you enjoy cleared PM work or do you wish you stayed in the non-cleared space?

Had an initial convo with the recruiter for a Sr Product Manager (Technical) role at Amazon onsite in Seattle (no remote) and he said the avg all in package they’re targeting is 180-190k. That’s 50-60k less than avg than what I’ve been seeing on fb and levels. I know that the band goes all the way up to 300k also. Currently making 200k all in and in a city 35% cheaper. The role is also a perfect fit for my background (7 yrs related experience), 3-4 yrs of other work experience.
