Would a PMO role help me to get a Product manager or program manager role ? Would it count as a relevant work experience?

Program Manager, yes.

What I've observed over 20yrs: - PMO to program manager. - Business analyst to product manager.

No lol

As s PMO, I have a very little scope of responsibilities. It's not a challenging work. Program manager is more credible and challenging

Need help ladies :) I feel I am being paid very less as compared to my peers and other team members. I was the only one on the team from last 4-5 months and have handled everything by myself including coding to daily BAU tasks. How do I go about asking the leadership to increase my compensation? Also, my manager is very demanding and has suggested me not to talk to the CRO about my compensation. Don’t know what to do 😳

My husband and I have been wanting to start “trying” for a baby for a while now. However, I’m unhappy in my current role and would like to make a jump somewhere else. I have a few early interviews lined up but it’s still early days and no telling where they’ll go. Is it silly to put off trying until I find a new job? On the contrary, is it problematic if I accept a new role down the line while a few months pregnant? Either route feels like a compromise. Appreciate any input from mamas out there.
