Are they competent and capable to do their job? Is this a job you want if you’re reporting to a former peer. I’m 16 years into my career and have reported to people that later ended up reporting to me. There are also people whom I’ve been fortunate enough to hire that I know one day are likely to be in a higher position than myself.

Depends on the company I’ve had former peers and people I reported to that ultimately ended up reporting to me. Some were fine with it and a few you could tell were resentful. In general it was recognized that I was capable and could do the job and we all worked effectively together.

Previously he was 2 years ahead of me in EY so whilst he was more senior it was only one grade and I didn’t feel like he was my “boss”. Has anyone done anything like this? I’m wary about how this new dynamic will affect our relationship / my experience on the job

They’re extremely competent and we got along really well I’m not to sure to be honest the job seems interesting, company is high growth and there is a significant upside if all goes well plus I’m a bit burnt out from consulting How was the dynamic change when your former boss reported to you? Was it strange? May also be because I’m unaware of the dynamic between a line manager in industry vs consulting, from my conversations with former industry folk at EY it seems a lot more rigid than in consulting, is this correct?
