    Just me but a SDM that came from program management would have a VERY hard time earning my trust unless they had an extensive eng background. I’d leave my team in very short order if this happened

    If you want to manage devs, be a dev first and then work up to management

    If you want to manage other PMs and you have a passion for it and enough experience to be a valuable mentor, then great
