What other jobs would require a similar generalist skillset besides project management or product management? I come from a development background who moved into UX space and project management and now playing a product manager hat in my current company, wanting to change jobs but worried my experience may only land me an junior product manager role which results in a $20k pay cut.

I joined Accenture 5 months back as a lateral hire ( Level 11 ) and have been a part of a project since day one.
I am not enjoying my work here, no motivation at all. Dreaded to report to work and having stress and anxiety. My manager is trying to micromanage me as productivity is on the lower side.
Another thing is, I have started to dislike my current tech and no more interested in it.
What are my options here ?
Is project release possible ?

Rejected Amazon offer for better WLB and $. But I started this new role and quickly feel that the job is very different than its job description. Thinking about looking for a new role.
How can I have Amazon take me back? The offer is effective for 6 months, right? I do know the role I was offered had been filled.
Happy to go through the interview process again for a different role with Amazon, but what I should say about starting my current role for only one month? Amazon

Anyone else stuck in a job because they don't want to lose maternity benefits?
I'm actively looking to have children. Medical advice tells me not to put it off at all, it's now or potentially never.
I have been approached about new jobs, have found jobs that are perfect but they don't offer anything above the statutory mat payments unless you have been there for a year or two at least. As the main breadwinner stat payments would be devastating for us.
Anyone else stuck?

I’m on Chapter 21 of Becoming where Michelle Obama states people pay more attention to her clothes than her actual words. I can relate to this on a smaller scale. My former manager in 2019 would poke fun at my hair color (I’m going grey and love Overtone) rather than ever give me feedback on my job performance. I finally confronted him and told him I’m not sensitive but it was “getting old.” Can anyone else share a similar circumstance?

WWYD: you're a somewhat green executive and a SME in your industry. You report to a senior exec who has no experience in your line of business and so hired you 3 yrs ago so they could fully delegate. While you mesh really well personally, you struggle to get your boss engaged with your teams work. They arent bad, per se, you've had worse.. but they don't communicate well and seem to avoid conversations on strategy and decision making.
What tactics do you use to get your boss better engaged?
The only female leaders I’ve had have been fired within 6 months of me being at the company, or left within a week of me being hired.
I’ve checked out Pavilion as a potential place for additional leadership and mentorship, but I feel that I may be stuck in an endless loop of male leaders. To be very clear, I’ve built great relationships with some of my male bosses, but I do wonder if I’m missing something without the potential differentiating perspective.
Have you ever felt certain biased behaviour towards you from your reporting manager over team call or simply ignoring your messages and you don’t even know the reason for it?

Sometimes I get really frustrated with women in PM groups. There was one where I shared my compensation anonymously and someone said it was a “red flag” that I was being paid “too much”
Saw another post where someone was expressing frustration at being offered half of what her male colleagues got and the top comment was asking if she really NEEDS that much money
Just a rant. Tired of being told I’m shallow for wanting to be fairly compensated for my work. Men freely talk about $$
I’ve recently come across a few roles titled Design Technologist. Is there anyone here that has advice on entering into these types of roles and interview tips?
A previous employer reached out and offered me a Senior Product Designer role with a 40% increase base salary. I am considering this, as I have been feeling under utilized at my current role + dealing with of uncertainty lately. But I would be forfeiting a lot of RSUs if I leave. I am in the middle of my vesting period (2/4 yrs), and this year alone would have 256 shares vesting (~$500 share price). The new role will come with shares, but at a small share price. Anyone had similar experience?
If one more male apologizes or tells the women in the room to cover their ears just before they swear..

Hey , it's a little off topic. But do you mind sharing how you switch from development to product management role? I am thinking something on the similar lines.
I was working in a team that had UX consulting so I learnt UX there and then did a certificate of digital design to get into a more visual development role, then gotten into more team leads and project management roles.
The current place I work at is a startup and not super structured, so I transitioned from a project manager role to more of a product role just by observing how the company needs shifted and put my hand up/strategically placed myself into product management related work and eventually transitioned into a product manager.
UX design is not too far from Product Mgt. As a UX designer, you center on personas, their goals and pain points. This is a core component in designing products including definition of current and future state. Learn about product roadmapping, prioritization and agile/scrum. I don’t think you’ll get a pay cut. Your UX design skill is an asset in PM bc sometimes other companies or projects don’t have a dedicated UX designer.
FYI: I was a former product manager.
While you’re still in your job, shift your mindset and pretend you’re the PM for your project. Observe and learn. Do you think you can do what the PM is doing? I hope the answer is yes given your experience and the Courses you’ve done. You need not check all the boxes when you’re starting a new role. That applies to any role. You already have the foundation. Feel confident. Confidence and the attitude that “you can” is what will set you apart from an associate. And always seek feedback from your team esp developers/architect.
