What are some useful goals for a Senior Consultant looking to get ready for a Manager role? My Coach doesn’t have much interest in my development and I’m in the process of looking for a new one, but meanwhile I’m working on building my own list of skills I need to work to become a good manager. What does a brilliant Engagement Manager look like? Any thoughts are much appreciated!

Have any fishes from this bowl ever moved from Senior Consultant to an analyst position at an investment bank/asset manager? Keen to know whether it ended up feeling like a step down/starting over? Only asking as a lot of recruiters are approaching me for ODD analyst roles and I’m not sure whether I should play hardball for an associate/AVP type role. Thanks!

24 year old senior consultant in corporate tax, on track to become a manager next July. Only thing is I don’t want to be in tax for the rest of my career.. any good exit paths that anyone can recommend? Potentially interested in management consulting, joining a finance team as an accountant or trying banking. Also hoping not to have to take much of a pay cut where possible. Any ideas/thoughts/advice?

Better to stay at a larger firm with more potential long term growth, or switch now for the immediate pay bump and more start up vibes meaning potential rapid leadership position?

Interviewing for a Business Transformation (public sector) in DC. Senior consultant position, 4 YOE - is 110k a good ask? Maybe a range of 110-115? Also, Should I be asking more details about bonus before speaking with the team?bI already had first call with HR, should I wait until final rounds to discuss compensation? I have current offer of 95k +20-25k bonuses, but with smaller, boutique firm, not public sector. Weighing both sides here

Getting haunted by the fact I didn’t get promo for 2 years and just got it this year. The peer then is my (thin line) day to day reporting manager who still leans on me. While I respect her position, I’m feeling like I don’t have the independence of “running the show”. The client has been ours for over few years so I can’t even make “relationships” work. No team reports to me directly so feeling like I’m still a SC but with a title. I hate bringing low energy but what can I change about this?

SC at ~ 180K TC. I recently got an offer from my current client for a VP role (they had pitched other roles and I declined due to the comp difference not being high enough). They came back a few months later with a 450K TC VP offer that really surprised me... While this seems like an obvious move, the client is really shitty and fairly small (~1B in rev). Am I crazy for thinking of turning this down? My GF and I combined make about 400K so it’s incrementally not that much to us.

New manager at a Big 4, but I’ve been a consulting manager for a while. An SC on the team said they “refuse” to report to me because I’m new. Our partner told me to get this SC in line and that I have his full support- but he apparently never told her I was coming to join the team to manage her😬. How do I set this SC straight without totally squashing her spirits? For context, she wants to take on more management role and be my “peer” but she’s a brand new SC...she’s not close to being ready.

So I’m a second year consultant. Like most, I was disappointed with compensation this year and am pretty bearish on my future earning potential here. I’m currently interviewing with a big tech company (not FAANG but close) for a position with substantially higher pay as a business analyst. I really wanted to stay til SC/M but the money is too good to pass up. I guess my question is: are there any major downsides to exiting to industry “too early?” Has anyone done it and regretted it?

When countering with desired 125K base, due to other opportunities, base was raised to 115K. Would be happier with 120K base, but is it worth pushing for?
