Pmo role is no win situation no matter how good you are 😬

Sorry folks, pmo... exit opportunities from a pmo leadership role are massive. Aws is a very limited niche

All depends on what OP wants / is interested in. PMO isn’t the most exciting work and isn’t revenue generating and you have to deal with direct reports. Product management on the other hand is a lot more engaging, you’re building the product that is generating revenue for the firm and you get to solve complex problems and work with a wide range of people and teams

Thanks for the responses the way I am trying to look at it Is what will help me for the next job? I think the pmo role with direct reports helps me transition into a director role and I am unsure of the path of product manager role considering its more of a lead by influence role no direct reports but I agree the work is more interesting.
