I will gladly kick back tax-free 40k in greenbacks/crypto - whatever medium to the person who hires me at $290k for a PM role. 15+ YOE

This thread shows that most people here haven't done anything other than consulting. Just having a title of PMO and X yrs of experience doesn't determine your salary A PMO in consulting terms is usually a paper pusher/status tracker. In cases like M&A this becomes more complex in managing synergies across multiple workstreams In the real world, a program manager could be anywhere between the most junior/entry level role all the way up to the most senior executive. For example, the PMO of the Boeing Dreamliner program was probably a very senior executive. The PMO who is overseeing baggage handling for an airport probably is not.

They are now a dime a dozen and so many contractors out there that will do it for much cheaper. For very complex engagements will require strong PM/ PMO.

Underpaid, you should have 7 figure TC and 10M NW at this point.

PMO as in Program Management? Or do you mean Product Management, which is a whole other ball of wax.

M1, agree. But I am seeing many Project Managers misrepresenting themselves as Product Managers.

My husband has become extremely scatter brained and inattentive to details. He leaves his dishes out after eating, forgets when he turns on the gas/oven, and just forgets a lot more. He did have bad covid back before the vaccine so I’m not dismissing the role it’s playing but it’s exhausting me. I feel like I’m always on duty and am worried about how much worse this will get once kids are in the picture. Anyone else married to a scatterbrain? Ways to deal?
