Currently an Associate Manager (which is the level below Manager in ACN Tech) and applied for a Manager role at big4. I have 7.5 YOE. I’ve completed all interview stages already. The salary I’m demanding is too high so they are considering offering SM after I come back for another interview. Bad move or good opportunity?

Is it appropriate to ask about the comp/benefits the partner group makes at a regional consultancy I’m interviewing with (top 30)? At B4 I know I’d start around 300k in my practice, great pension, etc. Obviously it depends on growth of the firm (300mil rev last year, projecting 1B by 2026) but I’m just not sure how to go about it. I’m already a senior manager so just don’t want to join somewhere with not much room for growth even if I do join partnership.

Hey all, been targeting big tech roles within analytics and have had solid success getting interviews although landed nothing yet (amazon google Coinbase PayPal). I have 5YOE within analytics consulting. A recruiter reached out for Senior Manager Data Science role within IT Audit. Comp would be ~200k. Went thru the interviews and expecting an offer next week. Should I just decline and hold out for big tech? Kind of torn, it’s a unique opportunity to be a SM with direct reports at 5YOE.

So just interviewed for a Revenue Agent position supposed to receive initial offer within the next couple of weeks based on what the manager was saying. Part of me definitely likes the idea of a 40hr work week with no other crazy obligations/metrics or needing to do extracurricular stuff to get a bump in pay. The manager guy said generally they put you at a low step so pay obviously isn’t spectacular. Now entering my 3rd year as a SM is it worth taking a pay hit or would you try industry?

I got interviewed at PwC for Associate role in Delivering Deal Value (DDV) practice. The interview was taken by a senior manager. It was a good experience (around 30 mins duration). He told me that the next round would be conducted by director. But it's been more than 15 days since the interview and there is no communication for further rounds. Does it confirm a rejection?? It would be great if someone could give some clarity in this as it was a dream role for me.

Interviewed for a SM role at Accenture. Situational and with 2 other SMs for a smallish group. Last SM said to “expect a package next”. It’s been a week and nothing. Not even sure I would want the position, so hesitating reaching out, but I assume they’re interviewing others (or I’m being ghosted). Normal? It was a bit of a bizarre experience, which is another reason for my hesitation.
