Given pretty equal comp post MBA - is Amazon Sr PgM L6 a better job than B4 M&A?

Better WLB at Amazon.

Strongly disagree. Went from EY to AWS.

Sr. PM L6 is definitely better - program manager can be hit or miss depending on team and scope of role

like

Has nothing to do with a specific program or project - they’re both very different roles and have very different career trajectories.
Product managers own a product (or a specific feature set for larger products) and are responsible for the strategy, design, development, launch, and improvement of it. PgMs have a execution lens and are responsible for the delivery of a program/project

Also it's relatively easy to pivot from PgM to PM once you're on a team. The weird thing about amazon is, you can only get promoted a level up on your current team. You can't go and apply for an L7 (principal or Sr Manager level) position in another team. You can see if they'll lower it to L6, do the job for a year or two and get bumped up to L7. So the team you join is pretty important.

I'm not sure, I just joined. I do know for BizOps I will need to pick up SQL to get to L6 for BizOps (I think of the few openings, they all ask for it).

Hi everyone,

I’m currently looking to build a career within the ESG consulting and strategy space. I am in a career transition phase and have a tax consultancy background from a Big 4 for 5+ years.

While I am still in the process of upskilling myself and gaining the required knowledge, could you help me with referring my CV or with some leads?
