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

Yes, just left Deloitte with 3 yoe and I’m a Manager in industry.

So I would suggest waiting until you get the promotion.

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.

As someone who has only worked at EY and has no other work experience or “passion,” how do I begin looking? I’m a high performer in CA with a cpa and working in tax but I don’t feel like I have enough time for myself with all the extra work from people leaving during the never ending busy seasons. I’m in my mid twenties and feel like work is my life. I think I’ll be satisfied with six figures for a while, which I’d be pretty close to after my raise in October anyways, and 40 hour work weeks.

Does anyone have guidance or advice on how to raise this type of issue, and how to seek a raise both individually and as a team?

They haven’t seen too many cases of children going to daycare in India in their family. Who else has faced this issue, and any thoughts on resolving the same? This is causing a strain b/w us.

Maybe off-topic, but I’ve got a question related to taxes and withholding. 2020 was the first year that both me and my wife made full salaries in our high-paying jobs (she’s a pharmacist, I’m in consulting). We don’t do anything out of the ordinary to reduce our taxes, we just put ~ 6% each towards our 401k’s. No house or kids so our other deductions are limited. Just started doing taxes and got a shock that we owe big. Any others in this situation? Do you just withhold a ton extra on W4?
