How would interviewers know you didn't get promoted unless you're planning to advertise that as your reason to leave? If so, don't do that. Don't bring in levels.. If you're say an M5 then that tells potential ex consultant interviewers that you haven't made SM for the last at least 1 year. You would just tell them you're a manager.. Not specifically an M5. Same for a senior consultant or SM etc. Leave the level out, just go with the title

I'm currently working as a Data Scientist, at a 1T$+ M. Cap company, and transitioning to a Manager position. This would be my first management role. How do you navigate this change in terms of compensation, without having strong leverage? (eg other offers) The market average, in my area, for the two roles have quite a significant gap, how would you isolate this conversation about this raise, other than that I would be on a substantially different role? Anyone with exp with a similar transition?

Been practicing a year now. Of 6 attorneys, 4 will be retiring soon, and I was brought in to hopefully take over. I am troubled: first that my partners largely provide me with no guidance. They handed me a client with a large quantity of fairly straightforward casework and have been hands off since. There also hasn’t been any talk of a raise/performance review. How should I ask for guidance/mentor ship? How do I ask for a raise, or should I presume one is coming?

Serious feedback and answers requested for D commercial offer. Currently a Mgr, applied to Mgr role, Recruiter extended me an offer, however it was for a Sr Consultant position, and said they would put me on a fast track path to Mgr. They also alleged that they want to ensure I come in and learn the D way and learn their methods so I have a better chance of success. Q. Is there such a thing as a fast track path? I find this offer almost offensive, since I am already performing at the Mgr-level.

Which offer would you chose? Company A is a private company with $2B valuation, excepted to IPO within the next 2 years. Company B is with Meta (Facebook) as an accounting analyst. TC for both are the same. I enjoyed speaking with the team and hiring manager for company A more and I think I’d be a better fit, but I want to join Meta for the company brand, resume builder, and perks they offer. Is there anyone here that works for Meta that can share their experience? Thanks!

Been working on mostly (about 70%) public sector policy and strategy at Big 4 for most of my career. Often go up against MBB on RFPs and have a decent win rate. Would I be too senior to come in as a lateral hire? I guess it’s all about client networks at this level, and being government, it’s locationally dependent - so which markets have need?
