Reduced travel schedules, maybe. 100% remote? Not a chance.

If the quality of the teams work doesn’t fall, and you’ve been successful with not having to baby the client I see no reason to travel to them

I've become really jaded about consulting.

Does anyone who switched from consulting to product management have any recommendations of h helpful PM books, courses, or programs?

Considering a mini pivot from growth/performance marketing to a product marketing role and hoping for a gut check from those who have done both. I'm trying to move away from the transactional culture of growth marketing, which feels like a numbers game. I'm also intrigued by product management and user research, but not ready to invest in that bigger leap, so product marketing seems like a half-step to get more exposure to those teams. Am I on the right track here? Any advice on the transition?
