Definitely easier from a consulting role.

Industry is a lot easier. Maybe not in day to day role (projects are still projects at the end of the day) but all the extra consulting paperwork is gone.

Product owner in tech? What industry are you targeting?

If you're able to get a program manager role that works with product / eng teams, that will probably be easier to transition in industry.
