Is exiting in <8 months a good idea? For context: I received an offer for Google APMM (exp hire), currently in final rounds for McKinsey BA, and wanted to collect this bowl’s insights on whether exiting in 8 months is a wise decision. While I am also leaning more towards Google than McKinsey & Company, I wanted to source this bowl’s thoughts on whether I should expedite my final round to see if I can get an offer EOW or take the Google offer (just got it in writing). Thank y’all :)

Totally! They are way better opportunities. If you were making a lateral move it may send mixed signals but going up is totally fine. Run for it

I think some people here are confusing APMM (associate product marketing manager) with APM (associate product manager). If you had the APM offer, I’d say it’s a no brainer. However, given that it’s an APMM role, I’d recommend you talk to some former or current APMMs. The role tends to be more focused on lead generation, not strategic nor actually building a product . Product marketing roles are really hit or miss depending on company and also pay less for the same level vs. product / engineering

Thanks, makes sense. Growth generally refers to growth marketing type work right?

Just exit lol. I am in a similar boat and accepted an offer in tech last week. Really happy I don’t have to grind for years in consulting.

Might as well try and finish the process at McKinsey if your Google timeline allows, but 100% just take Google if the offer will explode.

In a tough situation and need some advice. I’m an audit associate who got passed up for senior promotion this year, but senioring a busy season engagement. There is another senior that is supposed to be on the job, but he hasn’t been staffed on the engagement the past couple weeks and is off this week. I now have the full responsibility of this engagement on my hands and feel like it’s pretty unfair considering I got passed up for promotion and am not getting paid to be a senior. What do I do?
