A project manager creates and drives a project plan to completion (including the agile equivalents). A product manager owns the vision for what the product should be and the role is much more customer / executive stakeholder facing—they create and drive the vision for the product and are responsible for the overall usefulness/value/success of the product.

A project manager is responsible for coordinating and delivering work. A Product Manager defines what the end result should look and feel like.

I’m trying to figure out what I’m worth. I’m a director / editor who works directly in-house at an agency. I’ve directed several (roughly one a month) broadcast spots in the last year for a national fast food client and I’ve also edited those spots among editing other random national spots in-between. The production budgets range from roughly 200k-500k per shoot depending on how many days it is. I get paid 75k yearly which is feeling pretty low when I do the math. Is that fair?

Vulnerable post: how do I stop overpromising and underdelivering? I have always been very mature, motivated and focused. I would start 10 things and maybe finish 9. But it was energy/sprint. As a manager and above, I feel I have no solid foundation. I have a ton of accomplishments, which means I’m not a complete loss to project management but I feel like I’m constantly failing to meet my expectations and/or the big goals I commit to. Big goals engage but paralyze me. Small bites don’t motivate
