7 YOE (6 in industry, 1+ post-mba consulting) with working for a leading LS consulting firm. I’ve heard the level I should be targeting is AD / D for industry exits. I haven’t had much luck with roles at those levels (most interest has been at the Sr. M level). Am I aiming too high?

You are currently posting as works at

were your 6 years in industry in R&D/manufacturing roles or commercial?

Are the roles you are applying for in a similar area? If yes than AD sounds appropriate...if no then maybe Sr M IMO

I'm 7 YOE all in industry and had to fight tooth and nail for AD. You can probably get it but it's a tough sell, a lot of companys seem to have YOE minimum guidence they respect as there's a lot of Sr. Directors/VPs with 20 years of experience

First year M&A associate. I never came into big law wanting /expecting to gun or make partner, and first year pretty much confirmed that.
