Consulting Exit Opportunities

Any advantages to waiting until consultant promotion to start searching for an exit ? Could I then target Manager exit opportunities?

I've seen manager positions 3-5 YoE. As long as you have 3 years you should be fine

Totally depends on the specific exit target. Manager at Big Tech? You'll most likely get passed over without a second thought. Manager at one healthcare industry firm I worked at where M was the 3rd of 17 career levels? Sure, and you could probably make a case for it right now. And so on. There is no uniform manager level in a particular industry, let alone within industry overall.

lol this exactly. Manager title is often inflated in industry and does NOT equate to the responsibility of a manager in consulting.

I was told today by my coach that it’s really hard to balance my workload and coach me because I’m on a FWA. Basically telling me that it’s going to hinder my career even though I’m up for a promotion this year and yes she recommended me for one. I don’t think she wanted too but the partner in charge of my department told her that I am good at the tax work I have done and that I should be promoted. So now I almost want to go part time to relieve my stress I have every week

Had 25 hours and 1.5 weeks to write out a relatively simple design and review with the client. Decided to start it last night, drunk, and finished this morning. Design went great, client was really happy and we’re moving on to build. Spent a total of 2.5 hours doing it, and now I’m gonna go take a nap.
