I’m a Product Manager at JPMorgan; role leans towards the business/client stakeholder side of the spectrum.
I am looking for a FAANG Product Manager mentor who can guide me towards a more targeted effort in transitioning to tech. Completely willing to put in work and open to criticism.
Any help is valued. Thanks all!
The biggest difference you're going to find is: what the engineers say goes. If an engineer says, we can't do this in that amount of time, or this is not the right way to do this, or this isn't a priority for our team right now, that's it, especially if they have the data to back up their claim.
Your primary responsibility will be to make sure no one is wasting the engineers time, which plenty of people (including other engineers) will try to do.
By filtering out bullshit for your team, you can help significantly increase your team's productivity.
I say this with utmost respect for what PMs do, I'm considering transferring into a PM role once I feel I've gotten bored of being an engineer.
