If you are into product management consulting won't help you build the proper skills. The game of delivering value to a client is too far different than the game of delivering value to customers.

Recruiting reached out to me for a Business Design role and said that my PM experience translated well and I was ready for something new. The first couple of years were a wake up call of a transition. Now I enjoy consulting but would never say that it is anything like Product Management.

I have interviewed w/ every member of an early stage start up & have an offer to join as their 1st hire. I just don't trust their technical co-founder to be able to execute or attract the right talent, so I'm going to walk away from it. I trust the other co-founder though and want to be honest. Should I be blunt when saying why? Would anyone here have actually appreciated to hear this if you were in a leadership position at a start up, or is co-founder status too late to make a change anyway?

She brushes it off saying hes just fussy which kind of irks me. Im also concerned that he's spending too much time strapped in a stroller. Is it reasonable to ask her to take shorter walks?
