I’m a senior PM considering making the move to consulting. Ideally, I’d want to work to teach others how to be a product manager. Does anyone have any recommendations in terms of companies/jobs? I’m already looking at places like Pivotal Labs and ThoughtWorks. Been difficult finding these types of positions at places like Deloitte Digital and BCG.

Traditional consulting isn’t a great place to practice product management in the way you’re talking, but there are definitely opportunities. In general, you’re looking for consulting firms that do a lot of custom development (thoughtworks and pivotal labs are good starts). Likely, you’ll find mostly boutiques that focus in this space, but give you the opportunity to practice product management in a consulting environment.

Another option: look for M&A teams that have specific software oriented teams/practices, where you could potentially focus on post merger integration for software companies. Integrating product management functions and developing a single product vision for two companies coming together is actually a really interesting exercise (I did this type of work prior to leaving consulting for product management and really enjoyed it).

Could I PM you about how to break into product from tech consulting?

EY1 I full read this as “let me product manage your journey into tech consulting” hahaha

I’m near the Chicago area - but I’ve had interviews with West Monroe and Kim+Carta (both have a presence in NYC). They have consulting positions for Product Managers. I opted to decline the offers because it missed tracking the success of launches. Once the product is done, it’s in the hands of the clients to monitor the success, and as the consultant you’re on to the next job. Otherwise, the companies and the work seems interesting for both.

Hey there, I have strong ties to Pivotal Labs, happy to chat more about that one if you’d like. It’s a good place to be a PM consultant, *especially* if you enjoy teaching (both within the organization and without)!

I’m a Product Manager with Deloitte and the firm is looking for strong product talent. If you’re interested, I’d be happy to discuss with you further. We need more experienced product folks at the senior levels in the firm.

Sure, I’d love to learn more. I can’t direct message you yet (fishbowl noob) but I’d love to chat.

Good morning!

Still trying to figure out this whole Fishbowl thing, so here goes my first post.

I would love to get into provider credentialing, but all employers I've looked at want at least 3 years of experience. So, I'm looking at remote Provider Network Coordinator roles, because I'm finding some of those roles don't need AS MUCH experience. I'm a RHIT, and have been working in healthcare for nearly 10 years.

Any advice on employers is appreciated!

This is my first post but I’m looking for a change in companies. I have 5 YOE in total and 2 of those were in product design. I’m currently a visual designer focuses on branding.

Also the pay is below average and no market adjustments. This company is great for people just getting started but looking for something else long-term.
