Product management is one of the hottest career paths for ambitious young professionals, with entry-level PMs receiving compensation packages of up to nearly $200,000 right out of undergrad. So, why is it such a lucrative and sought-after role?

What is Product Management?

As the name implies, product managers are responsible for each step of a product’s lifecycle. They take in qualitative feedback and quantitative data from customers, leverage their intuition, and then work with designers and engineers to build new product features. PMs will interact with customers, for feedback on the product, as well as designers and engineers. Because of product management’s expansive role, PMs will need to have a wide array of skills in order to be effective.
