Up for Senior Manager this year but also considering a lateral offer at ACN Strat for ~25% more TC over next two years. How important is the SM title? Does it significantly change my exit opps in 1yr?

Promo year to SM. Ready to explore B4 opps. How difficult would it be to sell myself for an SM role now compared to getting promo then leaving?

Was in a great position for senior manager promotion this year... & I’m pregnant! Would you recommend I bring this up as soon as possible or wait as long as possible? Coach/RP are not family oriented.

Promoted to SC waiting on comp. Will be in the last round of interviews at Wayfair for an SM role and they are talking a base comp at least $20k higher than what I make as a C. Is the grass greener?

I’m 100% burned out but might be up for partner this year. Waiting another year to go up seems like a not good idea because SM isn’t a great role to extend. Need to keep metrics high. What to do?
