With interest in “product manager salary” rising by 55%. And that’s no surprise. A product manager does meaningful work. As he or she is one of the most critical strategic drivers in a company, outside of the executive team. The unique role touches all aspects of the business. Involves a deep understanding of the customer’s pain points. And dishes out a high salary. But with great reward, comes great responsibility. Product managers are ultimately responsible for the success or failure of their products. Their contribution and direction help drive the success of high-performing organizations. And to their bottom line.
