Received offer for product management from prestigious non profit tech company; but the pay is quite low. I’m pivoting from consulting and want to break into PM but is it worth it for the low salary?

What is the path worth to you? Does this open doors you didn't have access to before? Will you be happier?

If you can live off the new salary, and it provides access to more opportunities you want, I think it's worth considering.

How much is the pay cut? And how long have you been looking? Non profits almost always pay less but if there is an uptick in your role, hang in there for a year and hop off

Non profit is the key word in the post…

???

It’s also okay to keep interviewing! I must’ve send out hundreds of applications and only received an offer I liked after half a year/8 months of searching, so either let it take time to find the right role, or go into the offer you got now but go into it with the mindset that you’re looking to learn a ton about the PM grind.

FWIW, it is a lot easier to break into PM once you have tangible PM experience (and title). Depending on the cut and what PM experience you’ll get, it could be worth it.

So I’m late to the Indian Matchmaking series. Is it the guy who has to be wealthy and the women who need to come from wealth? There doesn’t seem to be a lot of emphasis on what the women do for a living, but the men all seem either well-off or getting called losers. Is that what people look for in real life too? So there’s no place for women on the come up to be with someone above their own social class?

Good luck to those who are going into their first busy season! Yes, it’s daunting at first - we’ve all been there (albeit, not in a remote environment amidst a pandemic.) My best advice is to take one day at a time (marathon, not a sprint). Remember audit/tax/consulting is not life or death, and you WILL make it through. Have patience with yourself and your teams. Find a mentor! Don’t forget you can always find some moral support (read: self-deprecating humor) in your fellow fish!
