Product or project/program manager?


Product Manager

Project Management = Relatively easy move.

Product Management = Extremely difficult pivot.


Bit of a stretch depending on your background. Assuming you have some transferable skills?

Hmm I'm an ex- strategy consultant, but limited tech / engineering experience. Was a quant major in college though...

Thanks guys.

I earned a promo, but know I am at the lower end of the pay band compared to a colleague hired after me. I anticipate the bump will bring me up to what they are earning, even though I’ll now be a level above. Do I speak up, or just accept whatever is offered?

I started at Amazon 6 months ago from consulting and I’m definitely performing under expectations. I don’t like the role since it’s too technical and I spend too much time coding. Every 1:1 with my manager is spent discussing my “progress” on projects, “training” I should be taking or “creating plans and lessons learned” to improve but I just don’t care. I am actively interviewing elsewhere anyways. Am I about to be put on a PIP?

I'm currently an early PM at a small fintech startup and thinking of changing companies, but could use some advice.
