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?

All else equal, is it easier to become direct admit PP rather than promoted to that role from SM or MD? Seems less obstacles. Thoughts?

As someone who’s just here for the money, when does it make sense for me to leave? Ex. Is the pain you have to go thru to make SM really worth the marginally better exit ops? (Fresh grad, non-target)

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.

Would you exit (+30% more salary - less work - good company but potentially more narrow role) when you have a substantial shot to Senior Manager this year (I.e. 6-7 months until decision takes place)?

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?
