Tenure. Partner is more senior than Principal. Then comes Managing Director & Partner (with Equity)

EY is the same as deloitte. Partner (has equity and CPA), principal (has equity but no CPA - essentially “partners” under most consulting practices), managing director (no equity).

Principal for us is like a Super Senior Manager. We call SVPs and EVPs partners. (There’s a VP level in there too)

Partners (audit, advisory)/Principals (consulting) have equity in, and have to pay into the firm. They also earn revenue based on the firm’s overall revenue. MDs have the same level of authority and responsibility to sell but don’t have to pay into the firm and don’t earn based on revenue. They earn a salary.

Principal is the level below Partner. Partners have equity - principals are giving their all to hopefully get equity soon.

Principal is a senior manager, often on multiple projects, and with more BD responsibilities

You join a company in a role you never ever wanted to end up in but your past experience makes you suitable for it. You then get a call from your dream company at a significantly lower salary.

Considering earning an MBA at a highly ranked business school after having a MACC and CPA - trying to weigh pros and cons. Any individuals take this path? I feel that adding a name brand to my resume beyond EY would just push me further...but time and experience could also do this. Looking for insight.

I’m quarantined w my aunt, uncle, brother and cousin at the moment. I show that I’m really happy all day but every night before I go to sleep I cry like a baby. Sometimes even during the middle of the day I take bathroom breaks to shed some tears. I don’t know who I’ve become and why this is happening - I lost my job and am dating a boy who doesn’t seem to care about me. Some days are better than others and that keeps me going.
