How easy/difficult is it for AE to transition into a PM role?

Most PMs cap out in the high 60s/low 70s. Acct service easily gets up into six figures. Don’t do it for money, tho. Do what makes you happiest and gives you a solid standard of living

Process what you want to do long term. There isn’t the wealth of growth prospects in PM vs Acct. Which is fine, just be aware. Personally, some of the better Acct people I’ve worked with started as PM and switched to Acct. not vice versa

Super easy! I went from AE to producer which was a hybrid of account and PM and now do PM 100%.

Any suggestions of where to look for those hybrid PM/account roles? I’ve been trying to move into production and most of the feedback I’ve gotten has indicated that I need to start at the beginning. That’s why I’m still where I am. Too hard of a pill to swallow to undo 6 years of progress with a livable salary approaching my 30s.

Not hard at all! One of my fav PMs was an account Supervisor first. At AE level you won’t have any bad habits to unlearn. Basically the same job but more organized, more ownership of schedules and less client bullshit.

like

Client services is the least favorite aspect of my job to be honest. I am wondering what other positions there are where I can apply any transferable skills. PM seemed like the closest match.

OP, have you also considered production? Lots of similar skills required as PM but more of a similar career trajectory to Account.

Does anyone have any feedback or tips in preparing for a finance role (financial analyst) with Google? My background is in big 4 public accounting but would like to eventually try and make the pivot. As of now, I have just 2.5 YOE but I know that a lot of ppl on this bowl have mentioned that Google typically looks to hire ppl with 4+ YOE. As of now I have just been doing a Google data analytics course through Coursera to buff up on some data visualization skills along with SQL and R.

Serious feedback and answers requested for D commercial offer. Currently a Mgr, applied to Mgr role, Recruiter extended me an offer, however it was for a Sr Consultant position, and said they would put me on a fast track path to Mgr. They also alleged that they want to ensure I come in and learn the D way and learn their methods so I have a better chance of success. Q. Is there such a thing as a fast track path? I find this offer almost offensive, since I am already performing at the Mgr-level.
