I got a verbal offer from one of big 4 and the 💰 is decent. Here is my hesitation : I want to go truly because I want to grow to be a leader. I am a Sr. DS, specialize in financial risk analytics.

How do you respond to "What do you want to do?", asked asked by a partner? I joined consulting as part of an acquisition, never really wanted this career. I honestly just want to make money and get promoted for the experience. I've really enjoyed my time at a B4 and have learned a ton but am not partner track. Is it bad to admit I'm not looking to make partner? Will that hurt my promotion to manager chances? Do I need to tell him something more specific than "I want to make manager?"
