Is it a bad idea to reach out to the hiring manager directly after you've been speaking almost exclusively with talent acquisition? But also the hiring manager has been on vacation for the last week, which almost required discussion to be had with TA.

I'm currently working as a SWE and am interested in learning about the PM role and the experiences of others who switched to PM from a different role.
I enjoy customer engagement and planning/timelining work in an agile manner. These make me think I'd be a good fit for the role but I have some concerns/questions:
1. What is the pay-range compared to the average SWE pay range?
2. What skills are critical for the PM role?
3. Should I obtain Agile PM certificates?
4. Anything else I should know :)

I joined a major consulting company in January under its “lesser” affiliate and part of the deal is that there is no “bench” if you’re not staffed then you’re out of a job immediately. My project lead was an MD and all year she stringed me along that she was going to bring me over to the parent company and now there’s a hiring freeze and even though I’ve had nothing but good feedback on my project by the end of the year I’ll be out of a job. Bench is so deep that anytime
