Setup a meeting and politely tell them that we’re going to fuck over the client relationship and lose business BIG time. Associate a $$ to current and projected revenues with the loss and present it to them... you don’t what to lose in this competitive business where relationships can be strong across the spectrum of firms...also get a more SRMD to understand this and jump in to deal with the bullshit. Do not be the one to get into the crossfire.

Anyone have experience in transitioning from consulting (Project management) to Product Management? Needing advice on things I can do to strengthen my resume to be a strong candidate for these roles. Currently doing LinkedIn courses but I know my YOE will discount me from most opportunities. I am extremely confident in my skills as I have been successful for the most part as a project manager. Any advice on next steps, or things I can do today outside my 9-5 to break into this space. Thanks!

I freelance PM for a small firm, 2 male owners, all else are ICs. When managing certain campaigns I am the ONLY one from my team doing the bulk of the work. My agency’s profit margins are ridiculous. Example, they’ll charge a small firm $10k for a project that costs them $3k. I, who will have managed the entire project, might pocket up to $1k. The owners, who do nothing, pocket $6k. Yet when I ask for a raise, it’s a big issue. I love the work, but I am clearly underpaid and valued. Need advise!
