I'm a Sr. Project Manager and for the next step in my career track, which do you think is better to go for: a Program Manager or a Director of Project Management? I'm based in Atlanta. All thoughts are welcomed.

Director typically is a higher position. It really depends on the company. I have worked as a Program Manager as well as a Senior Project Manager. At my company and most I’ve worked at, Director is a step up be it Program or Project Management including people management (other project or program managers). I am in Europe but have worked for American companies.
