I've been blessed to be accept into MIT's LGO program with a full ride (MBA + MS in EECS) as well as MIT's system design and management MS. I have an EE UG degree and currently working as an R&D engineer in the Bay Area for almost 3 years and looking to move into leadership positions in tech (HW or SW products). Here are the pros and cons as I see it.

MIT LGO:
Pro: Its MIT. Knock out two degrees in one and never worry about education again. Pivot completely into CS and management. No debt. Network building.
Cons: Leave Industry for 2 years. Move far away to Boston. Not many other MBA jobs I'd care for except Product and def not too keen on operations. Bay Area sometimes view MBA with indifference.

MIT SDM:
Pros: Its MIT. I can do 1st half remotely and then go on campus for required 1 semester. Curricula only focuses on technical leadership and flexible eng electives, instead of non-essential MBA classes. Can stay in CA and keep a job to get WE at same time (will try to apply to rotational PM roles or a SW role)
Cons: Not as good networking. Not as much of a guarantee that I'd move into Product directly? (many folks in program have immense WE, and this acts as kind of like an EMBA for them). Tuition is around 80k total across 1.5 years, so I would finish with no debt also because I'd have income from my job.

Happy to hear any feedback!!

It seems like the MIT LGO program will be more valuable to you given your background and development goals and will set you up nicely for the rest of your career as a leader.
