I've become really jaded about consulting. I find all so often you need to tell the client what they want to hear to keep their business and I feel like so much of the what I recommend doesn't actually get implemented. I'm looking to make a career switch so I can both create and execute on my strategies. A product management path seems very promising for this. Does anyone who switched from consulting to product management have any recommendations of h helpful PM books, courses, or programs?

Due to the scarcity of projects, I was staffed into a project I despise, notorious in the office for being ‘toxic’. It’s a very tech/programming role (I’m in MC, nothing to do with my area), manager is high strung and lashes out often, sometimes blaming things on me (or others) which isn’t my fault. It’s really taking it’s toll on my mental health, I’m unfulfilled, not learning and skills I value, and on edge all the time. What is the best way to go?

Honestly want to know if I am being unreasonable. My husband and I have worked f rom home since the start of the pandemic. Two kids 100% remote until two weeks ago when school started back up.
