Considering a switch from SA to TPM. Have started questioning my love for building things. Also thinking the path to director and above needs to go through project management. Getting an MBA to facilitate. But I'm also seeing comp just starting to go through the roof for my level cloud SA. Is switching a bad idea? Anybody have tips for making the jump?

Lots of PMs complain about lack of upwards mobility. Not saying you should or shouldn't do it, but it's something to research. Would be curious to hear what you find out.

Being a PM/TPM is not a place to go if you don't love building things at all. I agree it's not entirely a growth path. If you don't like the job you are doing now, you need to switch, but see if there's a way to try some work or some workshops in what you may be interested in. If you're doing the MBA it might open up more interests for you too and you can be a bit flexible as you move forward.

I would stay where you are. In terms of mobility, I don't see a huge difference between the two. PMs tend to hit a ceiling after a while.
