I recently started in a finance role at Amazon after getting my MBA and I'm not a huge fan of the work so far. It doesn't feel like I add much value. It seems like product managers have much more interesting roles. Is a transition like this possible/common? I don't have any previous PM experience so I don't know if this is realistic. If not product manager roles, what about program manager roles? I just feel like I want to get out of finance and be within the business where I am more involved in the running of the business. Thanks in advance for your help.
