How is the scope and growth for the role of an associate product manager ? I'm learning web development now. If I get into product management, can I switch to web development later when I have sufficient knowledge ?

Going through the same currently. My current job profile is of a backend developer and have a PM role offer in hand. It's a tough call. But eventually I believe as a software engineer you have 2 paths that you can take forward- that of a core/lead engineer or that of a product/program manager. The choice is whether you wanna grow in technical side or in domain side in the future.

True. You r correct. I will surely reconsider it. 😄
