How challenging are Product Roles at tech. I know it probably depends on the team but on average is it usually a chill role with good wlb?

No. Usually it is the opposite.

And you also don’t usually get the satisfaction of having “built” something tangible, the way Engg or Designers do. Your output is essentially “alignment” and “outcomes”, which are very difficult to track and hence companies usually do a shitty job at it.

Thank you for a detailed response!

Product management roles are more leadership oriented so if you want to move up management ranks, usually they are a good fit. If you want to do hands on tech and focus on building something then engineering and/or design would be the way to go. In companies like Google engineers rule the roost when it comes to influencing product launches. In companies like Amazon product managers rule the roost when it comes to influencing product launches. Different paths for different goals.

I agree with this. This was a great way to put it. Thanks for the info!

It will depend greatly on the industry, organization, and team dynamic.

I’d say it’s cyclical. When things are chill I’m usually working 25-30hrs a week and when quarterly planning rolls around I usually hit a high if 45-50hrs a week.

Not bad. I would classify this as an average of chill. Wanted to see if things ever hit consulting threshold. 60 plus hours (weekend work etc). Thanks!

Hmm well it's a mixed bag. I think being a software engineer is a little better when it comes to work-life balance since you will have more autonomy and dont have to depend on others that much. But this job is one for ambitious people. Really depends on the person really

Definitely not chill. Expect 9-5 meetings at least. And documentation/ tasks at night. Industry-wide not company specific.
