I’ve been offered two new positions within my current company.
1) a Senior commercial manager position combined with a product owner role and a role within a company wide strategy department, Strategy Consultant.
I wish to position myself on the best track to advance to a senior position both within my current company, but likewise if I one day chose to apply for a position at another company. In addition to this, I still have the desire to explore the opportunity to apply for MBB as an experienced hire at some point.
In short: are commercial managers (and product owners) highly regarded and valued in industry and/or consulting or would it be wiser to stay in strategy?
