Have a sales strategy offer from a reputable software company. It pays 15k more than what I make now and remote with monthly travel. Been at Microsoft in client success for less than a year with the chance to transfer to BizOps (70% likely) in the next 6 months or PM (50%, already talked to the manager, and I have a tech background) but no guarantee. I want to do strategy/product and don’t like my current role. Should I stay or go? Current TC is 150k, 2.5 YOE

Are consultants only seemingly more capable (at times) because we dedicate all our client-facing time on a single project vs. juggling multiple projects?

Am I thinking about this completely wrong?

Im a recent grad on a tech implementation project for a small firm. I’m finding it challenging because I’m expected to know how to solution a user problem based on the system that I really don’t know all the ins and outs of. I enjoy the req gathering/PMO activities, but thinking of data mapping and integrations is such a new way of thinking than a typical strategy-based case study. Do strategy ppl find these tech implementation difficult?
