Move out of Product Management?

Any PMs out there make a move out of Product? What did you do? Did you take a pay hit?

I love building product but can't stand the corporate politics these jobs often end up as the grinding store for.

    Interested in hearing about this too, was thinking of moving to more design and UX focussed roles, anyone here who has done that switch?

      Best way to move into PM is to do the switch in the same company

      It's a position for generalists with soft skills - which makes it frustrating if you want to hone hard skills and appealing if you don't.
