Product management vs product analytics? At a crossroads in my career. Prefer data analytics work but feel career trajectory is better in product management. Currently a pm wearing both hats and debating where to go.

Both are young fields. I'd keep wearing both hats as long as possible, and the best path will appear.

It is possible to switch from product analytics to product management later on in your senior career as long as you’re purposeful about it, so you keep developing PM skills at the same time.

If you prefer data science do that. Plenty of good money and roles there.

Product analytics will suit you better if you are in to analytics work. PM is a large field and can vary, some are non technical and have sales-ish responsibilities.

I was at a similar cross roads. Felt like for data analytics you would eventually become a super IC or just a people manager. And if you want to swap into pure data science you would have to pick up the modeling component (which you might already have). I tried out the PM work and it was too much people pushing / deck building for me personally and now I am rerouting myself back to data lol

I would really appreciate advice on managing a team of junior resources who are male and slightly older than me. All are as least two levels below me but constantly question and challenge the direction given. Without going in to detail, I have no doubt my age and gender is the reason.

I’ve come to the realization that I’m ambitious but dumb, and I should probably come to terms with the fact that I’m never going to have the career I want.

I wish I were brilliant and with no drive, knowing I could be more if I wanted, but being happy where I am. Here’s to drowning my sorrows in booze and giving up on my career. Cheers all.
