I’m currently a product manager for Merrill and am looking for other product manager or senior product manager opportunities. How difficult is it to transition to a different industry? Any advice?

    I transitioned from SaaS to a capital/payments product (in Boston). It's tough, especially since my engineers want a PM who is an expert. But the product group is supportive and the environment is conducive to learning. If you can get an opportunity like that with a chance to learn, take it. Also fintech in general might be a good move for you since you already have the investments experience.

    Depends what industry. Even within finance if u are working in credit that is totally different from investments.
