Would you say I'd be better off taking a product manager role at a young company 12 years old vs taking an offer in F500 as a strategy associate. Goal is to eventually own divisional P and L with shot at C suite

Given your goals, product manager for sure. The strategy associate gig is probably more ‘prestigious’ and follows the typical path but that won’t get you P&L and it certainly won’t get you the responsibility that you’ll get at the young company. (I went from consulting to one of these strategy roles at a top 10 corp)

Strategy

If your goal is pnl then isn't the answer obvious? Stop obsessing about the word product manager

I'm confused, do you mean I should go Corp strategy? My thought for product is because it seems like a GM in charge of the product, coordinate marketing, devs, and managing what features or projects to undertake with finite resources. I love strategy work but unsure of how to transition into being an operator to take ownership
