Assuming you don’t hate consulting life, you have an mba, but don’t see yourself sticking around long enough to make partner, what is the best level to exit at

Focus less on level to exit and more on the outgoing opportunity itself. Great exit opportunities can come at any level, try not to pass up a company/opportunity you love due to being too focused on exit level (eg Manager) as it may not come back when you get to that magical next level.

Manager - unless something great comes along. Just my 2 cents but you’ve got the consulting skills (you’ll have those after a few years of consulting regardless of level) AND you’ve proved you can operate independently and manage a team which is a couple of extra boxes checked.

I’d say manager or experienced manager, for sure. Having 6-10 years under your belt will get you a lateral Sr. Manager role in industry and you’ll get a nice pay bump

I just ordered my first Chanel! I never got myself a milestone gift before, but I just found out I passed my fourth and final section of the CPA exam, exactly one month before my 30th birthday. And I busted my butt for it, while working 50+ billable hours a week. I wanted to get something that will remind me of this feeling for years to come. I hadn't decided on a Chanel until I absolutely fell in love with the quilted Trendy CC. I'm ecstatic!
