Currently an Associate Manager (which is the level below Manager in ACN Tech) and applied for a Manager role at big4. I have 7.5 YOE. I’ve completed all interview stages already. The salary I’m demanding is too high so they are considering offering SM after I come back for another interview. Bad move or good opportunity?
Fish, would like thoughts on this exit Opp: Applying for a Product Owner position at a Pharma company for one of their Salesforce orgs, which is my long term goal. However, the position is at M level and high end of salary band is $160k base, which is the level/base I’m at now. I’ll be up for promo to SM in the coming months, so wondering if I’m selling myself short going for a lateral or possible step down for the role. Ctd
Accenture Strategy folks - what is the typical turnaround time on if you receive an offer (versus if you are notified they are going in a different direction)? Interviewed for an SM role late last week and just wanted to calibrate on timing. Thanks!

SM at S&. Is there any realistic path to an investing role, or am I too senior to pursue that opportunity?
Currently SM at Deloitte - well rated - received a decent hike in pay putting me in the upper 200s / close to 300K with bonus included. Considering Slalom vs. Publicis Sapient for a role. What’s the MD equivalent at both companies? I have 22+ years spread between consulting and industry.
Looking for SM role in consulting firms in data analytics space. Skillsets are data management and cloud. Any referrals would be appreciated. Preferred location London.
Hey all, been targeting big tech roles within analytics and have had solid success getting interviews although landed nothing yet (amazon google Coinbase PayPal). I have 5YOE within analytics consulting. A recruiter reached out for Senior Manager Data Science role within IT Audit. Comp would be ~200k. Went thru the interviews and expecting an offer next week. Should I just decline and hold out for big tech? Kind of torn, it’s a unique opportunity to be a SM with direct reports at 5YOE.
Had the partner in charge of the tax group I was previously in at a B4 firm email me encouraging me to apply for an opening with them (basically same role I was in before, but at a SM level). The catch is, I was part of their COVID RIF layoffs in summer 2020, and don’t think I’ll forget that anytime soon. Do I just respond that I’m not interested, or do I politely make it clear I have zero interest in ever returning to the firm?
32F, 10 YOE at two big 4’s in both tech and HC. Tough decision and want input! Options: 1. Offer to go to Deloitte as SM $200k+ 2. Admitted to NYU and Columbia full time Bschool programs - no scholarship at either 3. Admitted to Darden w more than half scholarship 4. Offer to go to Two FANGS as a program manager, 150k base, 75k annual equity (non technical role) I don’t love what I do but seems I could make partner in 3-5 years at D. Having tough time turning down Columbia Bschool or FANG.

Got an offer from a bulge bracket investment bank internal strategy role vs currently a Senior Manager at a Tier 2 strategy firm. Thoughts? Salary is a tad lower at the bank but looks like a competitive lot of peers at the bank
Just got approached for a senior manager position at fortune 100 company that is an IC role…? Even the director level would have limited leadership opportunity… I guess it’s better than all of the scrum master and project manager roles that seem to fall into my inbox but just odd leveling. Am I crazy or is it weird for a Senior Manager to be an IC???
Accenture 🐠 I recently joined as SM and I’m being asked to backfill a Manager role on my first project. I’m really unhappy about this because the work is way under my experience level but the client is a good one. Should I just suck it up and get staffed there or can I say no? If I did end up on this project would there be a negative impact for me in any way at year end?
Hello Consulting 🐠. Looking to make a move from Accenture. Currently part of the Strategy group within Supply Chain, Procurement, and Operations.

Take Senior Manager offer at another B4 or a middle of the road role at Google? SM may not be be the best for my mental health but at 30 years old I feel like it’s a big career move. I’m not so worried about comp, more so career progression.
Interviewing for a strategy role at a well established startup by an ex Deloitte SM that left a few months ago. Any tips on what they will be looking for or how to best position myself to resonate with them?

SM from big 4 to Enterprise growth strategy lead at Wayfair. 40% jump in pay and role is interesting - drive strategic change and p&l responsibility etc. Any thoughts?
So just interviewed for a Revenue Agent position supposed to receive initial offer within the next couple of weeks based on what the manager was saying. Part of me definitely likes the idea of a 40hr work week with no other crazy obligations/metrics or needing to do extracurricular stuff to get a bump in pay. The manager guy said generally they put you at a low step so pay obviously isn’t spectacular. Now entering my 3rd year as a SM is it worth taking a pay hit or would you try industry?
Challenges moving to an IC role from an experienced SM / Manager?? Let me know what I should watch out for… TIA
Would you reach out to a coworker who is an ex-employee of a possible exit op to talk about that exit op? Feels like an easy opportunity to get information but a risky one nevertheless Coworker and I are not close, but some networks (including with my SM) do overlap

Senior Manager position at ACN, any insights on the salary range for this level in the Midwest, in T&O Consulting? Just want to try and ensure I am not selling myself short…
Most likely getting an offer from a big 4 this week (M level). A current client wants to bring me in, but I need SM level to meet my TC expectations. They're working on getting the role leveled up, but it hasn't happened yet. Would likely accept the client role over B4 as long as base is within $40k (higher bonus, better retirement plan, limited travel, and equity involved). Ideas on how to handle?
I got interviewed at PwC for Associate role in Delivering Deal Value (DDV) practice. The interview was taken by a senior manager. It was a good experience (around 30 mins duration). He told me that the next round would be conducted by director. But it's been more than 15 days since the interview and there is no communication for further rounds. Does it confirm a rejection?? It would be great if someone could give some clarity in this as it was a dream role for me.
EY Question - Was looking on the job board and notice some SM level roles do not contain an element of sales development as a requirement for the position while others list it. Consulting service line. What’s the difference as I thought all SM jobs required sales?
Anybody have insight into internal strategy roles at consulting firms? Specifically interested in WLB, pay, exits, etc. Came across a role at the manager/senior manager level. TIA
A Senior Manager reached out about a Senior Analyst role in the Sales/Enablement team at Salesforce. Some background: have 5 YOE in consulting (strategy, data analytics, program management), and no MBA and looking to exit out of consulting firm. Based out of Washington, D.C. Can anyone provide insight into what the enablement team does / typical work involves? Also, would love to hear any general personal experience. Thank you!
Is S&E a hard role to break into? I'm probably an SM/AD level in industry, but all roles I see in industry advertised want director/senior director level, with 5+ years of direct experience.
Good news: I got an offer for a dream strategy role at a series C start up reporting directly to the Chief Finance & Strategy Officer (who also went to HBS and has amazing experience that I can learn from) Bad news: the base compensation is $150k ($60k lower than my base as a SM at Deloitte). The offer does include stock options. Do others who have made a jump from consulting to a start up have advice on how to approach deciding it’s worth the risk of the huge base salary cut?
Another Friday and another request for interview availability from EY scheduling. How many more of these live HireVue video interviews will I have to participate in before they make a decision? Interviewing for a SM role in Consulting. Completed 4 rounds already (1 M, 1 SM, 2 MDs). Received an email today asking for my availability over the next 2 weeks for another video interview. Ughh!
If I have a good year, I’ll may make SM next perf year in 2022. But… I’m starting to really consider exit options. Primarily at Amazon. I feel like I’m in a good spot here, but I am generally over the hustle of business development and necessity for tons of reinvest to differentiate from peers. I’d rather focus on client delivery / management. However, BD is only going to get worse from here on out. Thoughts? Anyone make the jump and enjoy the other side better?

Currently leading product at an early stage startup nearing PMF but may have an offer in industry for a senior global role in a leader within my industry of choice. Feel like I'm dicking over the startup after they took good care of me but tough to turn down this kind of offer
What percentage increase would you need to leave public accounting for a position at the same level (example: Manager to Manager) in industry? And as follow-up, if your public accounting firm then came back and matched the offer, would you stay or would you go? Looking for some other perspectives and consideration as a decision could be looking myself.

Just started a new role in finance and I’m the only woman on the team. It’s been 3 weeks and the guys have been pretty unwelcoming and kind of rude. The first day everyone was welcoming but it went downhill since. One of them keeps trying to scare me that the work will get hard etc and there’s always awkward silence and sometimes unnecessary rude remarks. I just started and don’t feel right what should I do.
Can someone share perspective on ZS Associates? I don’t really see much on here about it. What is progression like? Type of work, clients (I know it’s heavy pharma). Exit options? MBA placement?
Applied to a role but I’m interested in another - shall I tell the hiring manager this or apply myself? ADVICE NEEDED.
Found a job that I think is the one. One of my mentors works at the company and is going to review my resume for me ahead of my applying. Just found the hiring manager on LinkedIn and was thinking about messaging him to introduce myself and express interest. Should I wait until I formally apply to do so would it be okay to do it before?
