Seeking advice..
I was a consultant at Deloitte and now work as a Sr Mgr of implementations for a Saas company in healthcare.
I currently make $120k base with ~20k bonus based on performance. I have an MBA, PMP, 6 YOE and would like to break into the $200k upward salary range.
What skills can I learn to achieve this in the next couple of months? Or are there specific roles I should be targeting in the job market?
Thank you all in advance:)

I’ve never seen someone pivot from project manager to individual contributor/technical SME, usually it’s the other way around.

Regardless, you’re probably extremely underpaid. I work for a SAAS company in the Financial Services industry and my understanding is that our project managers that lead our professional services implementations are all making 160k+. Probably want to get a new job, maybe look to pivot to financial services.

Thank you! I’ve had my eyes on FinTech for a while now and it might just be my next destination.

Easiest way is to switch jobs again. Depends on what skills you have and where your MBA is from

I do plan on switching jobs and was wondering if there’s any hot technical skill I can acquire/develop in the mean time as all I’ve been doing is managing projects and pushing them to completion. No tech skills whatsoever 🥺

I was at Big D and went into SaaS sales. $200k is surprisingly common and “easy” to make in salary + commission after 2-3yrs in software sales. Especially if your platform helps transform an entire industry that was archaic before. Have a friend at a SaaS that helps with inventory management at storage facilities. They’re one of the first and biggest players and monopolized the market. He’s been making $300k+ a year for the past 3 yrs and is only 27yo with a standard BS from a small state school.

I’d suggest to look into sales engineering and solutions consulting that combines your implementation tech skills and PMP/MBA with business development. You’ll have a comfortable six figure salary and then potential for higher commission. You won’t be the account executive closing the deal but you get a piece of the cut. Any measurable bizdev you can get (ie “generating net new business $ / % in FY22”) will get you higher comp. That’s all that a partner at a consulting firm does afterall, sell.

Relatively recent grad trying to plan for an MBA down the line—would appreciate any advice. Is Big 4 (audit experience) a negative in the eyes of MBA admissions at T15+?

Trying to get a sense of the role different jobs / “prestige” plays into the process. Thanks

I’m considering leaving my job to move closer to family. I’m interested in hearing your thoughts on whether that is a sign of weakness/would make me unemployable later on. For context, a family member died in January and I had not been able to see them for 2 years bc of the distance and then Covid. Other immediate family members also have health conditions I’m concerned about. Working remotely for my current position is not an option.
