As a PM, I feel as though I should own and manage the product. But Senior Leadership often comes to me with “we’ve promised this to a client so you have to build it”. There’s often little to no discovery of the benefit of building something beyond “client excitement in a meeting”. How do you handle these types of issues, especially when it’s CEO, VP, and Directors owning the roadmap and you are the executer?

A client (not a leader but an analyst is that matters) really yelled at me to a point that other clients on the same team reached out to me and said that I do not deserve to be spoken to like that. I learned later that he was on an improvement plan and that he speak to many (women) like that even his former boss. I was given the option to escalate if needed but I’m not sure if I should. I hate the awkwardness of this.

I was just offered a job with the state government. It’s a pay cut of about $60-80k (and a much lower ceiling) but it means I’d be working 40 hours a week, wouldn’t have to stress about billables or bringing in clients, and would actually get to enjoy my time off again.

I might even start to enjoy litigation again and I’d actually be helping the public instead of defending corporations. But am I crazy for giving up that much money?
