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?

Definitely get the McK offer, it’ll benefit you to have competing offers
