Big 4/ACN is not tier 3. But pretty amazing you got offered manager role with just 5 years. But I say take it and rise up to the challenge!

Yes, Big 4 is tier 2. Deloitte, for example, is consistently ranked #4 after MBB. A tier 3 firm would be Booz Allen.

Personally I don't think they'd make you an offer for a manager level if they don't think you can handle it, or at the very least pick it up quickly.

Well clearly offer is not from D because there’s no way they would bring OP on as a manager with only 5 years experience. OP would come in as a SC at best or even C.

Sc3 seems super bitter about not going with a real t2 firm

But never a consulting engagement team before. Should I be worried a bit and ask to come in 1 level below? Don’t want to lose significant compensation but nervous as a first year manager at a new firm with no consulting managerial experience I might struggle and then get let go. Feedback?

You should definitely worry, but the fact that you’re worried is a good sign. Live and die by your SOW for now and just make sure you deliver. Also, new consultants always seem to think you have to have answers to everything and be a know it all. You don’t. Be humble and figure things out.

Op mentioning tier immediately leads to pissing contest 😂

With EY, expected progression (2 years as staff and 3 years as senior) to manager is 5 years FYI

I know it’s dependent on our OMP, but do we get our letters regarding raises before or after reviews are released?

I don’t really have much patience for people who have no meeting rsvp etiquette. I understand that it’s just business but if you can’t attend a meeting just let me know especially if the meeting is for you. And if you continuously miss it then i won’t try anymore.

For up or out people, do recruiters/companies ask if you left voluntarily or not? And what if you get asked for performance reviews but they are less than stellar, do you not show them?
