Not at all. Leave now. You can always come back. The least secure jobs in this environment are consulting.

Not in this environment, but in general PM can be really boring if you’re on the wrong product

NO

Thanks all. Yeah I figured. My plan is to try it out for a year. If I don’t like it come back to consulting at the same level . A lot of skills seems transferable.

OP, can you please share some insights how you transitioned from consulting to PM?

Hope all this helps or at least gives you a starting point.

I was offered an executive assistant role with a local hospital and I’ve been working here for a month. I love the job, and they are benefiting from the work I’m doing here, but I’m only getting paid 62400. I got an offer for a remote role that pays 85k to begin on the 22nd. Haven’t put in notice yet (waiting for background check) and I feel bad. just got news that another EA just put in her resignation and her role is mission critical. How could I ask to absorb her role with a pay increase?

When through phone screening and nailed it. Then recruiter said she would get back to me on salary because what she presented was too low for me, but thought there was wiggle room. Haven’t heard back in a month! Job is still open though... am I being ghosted or does it take this long? First job I’ve applied to outside of consulting...
