Definitely not freelance! I could write a novel on the god forsaken hours I’ve had to pull and what it’s done to my health and personal life. I’ve only lucked out once with a very chill gig in years of doing this. I am not so sure the answer is in production.

I’m a product marketer looking to switch into PM. I’m in the interview process for a senior PM role, but the product is not that exciting and I’m a little concerned the company is stale (it’s a legacy product and the company has been around for a while). Would it be worth it to get the PM title? (Alternatively, I’m considering taking a senior PMM or even PMM director role at a series A startup and then making the move to PM later on.) what’s the better move here?
