Been on a crazy busy project for almost a year now. Burned out. Thinking of accepting a very flexible, not technically demanding PMO role as my roll off. Is this a terrible idea?

Don't. Take a vacation instead but don't change your career trajectory especially if you are doing what interests you. Might be harder to get back to the good stuff after. And PMO can sometimes be a nightmare, you could end up just as overworked but even less appreciated than now. Beware.

PMO can be boring, but it’s an absolutely essential skill to have both in consulting and in industry. I say do it!

It’s fine

Nope. Do it.

That is what I am doing
