Anyone know what is typically needed for the Director promotion? How different is the role from Manager? Are the exits at Director level very different from Manager?

Talked about this a bit in my most recent 360 review. My takeaway was that (at least in R3) Manager is largely execution based while at the Director level your contribution to the firm (ability to bring in business, develop new knowledge, build follower-ship internally & among clients) matters significantly more and execution is seen as “table stakes.” No idea how this is evaluated, I’d guess it’s largely subjective based on Partner’s impressions.

Out or up policy, how much the manager likes you, and how much of a churn risk you are if you don’t get promoted
