AFS 🐟, I had a recruiter contact me about an associate manager position and the position description calls for a minimum of 10 YOE--does that mean manager normally calls for more than that? I'm at 16 YOE and have been a manager for a while now, not interested in taking a step back. Thanks!

Ever since getting in the real world, I day dream about being in academia full time some day. Masters, CPA, 3rd year associate, speaking here - anyone have practical insights on landing a part time adjunct position at a local community college? Note: not looking for prestige here - will literally teach the most fundamentals to the least motivated.

Take the Easy associate job that pays more with great brand name, great pay, great benefits, seemingly good manager, but the role isn’t what you want and isn’t as good of a stepping stone OR the difficult manager role that has great role, high impact, helps you learn, good skill development, average benefits, good pay (but not crazy outstanding), solid brand name BUT you don’t know the team/manager well & pay/benefits isn’t as high as the first

Does switching to a similar role at another firm typically create a delay for getting promoted? For example, Associate to Senior Associate on my current team almost always takes 2 years on the dot (give or take a month). If after 1 year I switched to a similar role at a competing firm, could I still expect to get promoted after another 1 year, or does switching firms usually cause it to take longer?

Need honest opinion from 🐠. Background: previously a big four consultant in tech consulting. Didn’t like the tech implementation work at all and needed to pivot. After obtaining my masters in data science, I landed a good role that actually uses what I’ve learned. However, this role also made me realize that data science (at least in this organization) has a very low ceiling, and is also highly on the technical side. I see myself eventually wanting to move to leadership/management positions.
