It’s true - and your point or question is?

PM, is by and large, a corporate role. Raises will be smaller and lower, when compared to consulting. That said, people also do it due to better WLB and ability to “own” something

You need to show actual results to get promoted and then make it known. Sometimes you get unlucky with outcomes (or you’re just bad) and it’s not your fault or you don’t self promote well enough.

In consulting you can get promoted in earlier tenure even if you have shown nothing in the way of actual results in terms of metrics/success, just need partners and managers to like you.

At Amazon, it can hurt. For example, in sales, if a customer doesn’t open the wallet, doesn’t matter how much you influenced them or positively impacted them, if there’s no spend, there’s no impact

Your friend is on point, especially for larger tech.

Would add: tech has a culture of jumping between ships that is not nearly as prevalent in consulting. Average tenure for top companies in the Bay is two years. They’re jumping between firms and collecting significant sign ons and new equity grants along the way. You’re not staying at, say, Google as a lifer like someone would at MBB. It’s not the way to climb.

This is why it’s REALLY important to come in at the right level.
