Likely moving from EY to an M&A tax role at Alvarez & Marsal. I’m wrapping up my third year as a manager at EY in a niche practice. Trying to understand the levels at Alvarez. Should I be shooting for director or senior director? How do the 2 levels really compare to the levels at Big 4? Alvarez & Marsal

EY-Parthenon 🐠, how many years does it typically take to go from director to senior director? I am interviewing for a role in M&A. I am a second year manager with around 12 years of experience (Industry and consulting combined). The recruiter is trying to bring me in as a director and I am trying to figure out if i can be brought in as a third year or fourth-year director.  My approach depends on how many years it typically takes to go from director to senior director.

Exiting to industry for a Corp Strategy Role. Company is deciding between Senior Director or VP levels for title, but pay won’t be too differentiated. Role is to run the company’s strategy group. Company is ~$1Bn revenue sized in tier 2 city. $200k base, 30% bonus and 20%-40% equity that takes 2 years to vest. Should I push for the higher title? How does this comp compare with what other similar roles are offering? Like the team so far and excited about the company’s growth trajectory.

Hi, an EYP recruiter just reached out to me about a position. I don’t do M&A or restructuring so I guess it is in the legacy Parthenon group but it was a little confusing.

Hoping to get some thoughts on career path? I left an agency about 1.5 years ago (content manager and prev social) to go in house (copywriter). Long story short, agency wants to offer me a senior director role. However, this isn't client facing and would be marketing for the agency itself. I left to focus on writing. I love the company where I'm at now. The agency is small compared to my current company, but the title could be helpful later. Thoughts?

REFUSE TO RETURN TO THE OFFICE (unless you really want to)! Despite proving ourselves as more than capable of WFH, agencies will try to force us back to the old ways. Do not budge. If enough of us refuse, they must accept a hybrid model. Hybrid models are supported by the same finance jerks who gave us open offices and hotdesking. They also know hiring new talent is expensive—pointless even, if most of the labor force demands WFH. We have the upper hand here. Agencies need to adapt, not us.
