I’ve been a fed for 13 years within DoD and am in my early 40’s. Not sure when a promotion is on the horizon for me as I’m a top performer.

I went to school in a different country (Jamaica) I have a BSc. in Finance & Management (double major) from an accredited university, now I live in the US and currently work as an Accounting Bookkeeper for a mid size company, I am very good at my job, came in and implemented alot of systems to make everything run efficient and boost productivity.

I’m hoping for some insight into what the typical salary for an APM is.
I’m relatively new to product management (6 months into my first APM role), but have some indirect digital experience prior as I spent the 3 years of my career in eComm.

Thanks in advance!
