It's not the most fun a surprise has ever been, but it is increasingly common in tech for this to happen. Even if you plan to leave the role I'd recommend increasing your knowledge base if you plan to stay in tech so that you're more comfortable in the future if this happens to you again.

I think it happens almost constantly in this industry. Rather than panic, I would seriously look into taking any courses necessary to get you up to speed on what you need to know.

I’m having a hard time understanding modern architecture and how data flows between the systems. Any tips for how to get up to speed here?

Hey all, I'm a Product Manager 9 months into a Big4 consulting manager role. I've come to the conclusion that although I can succeed in consulting, my preference is to own the roadmap and have a larger influence on the 'what' for a product instead of offering recommendations and executing on another PMs backlog. I've now accepted an offer as PM at a well SaaS product company, where I will have a more hands on role, shaping the product and delivering valuable outcomes. Thoughts welcome! :)
