My wife setup an introductory meeting with a T2 strategy firm's managing partner. She doesn't work with him but has a friend who does, which is how this was setup. I'm trying to transition from implementation (10 years) to strategy so I really want to impress. What talking points and questions would you all recommend?
Partners. Do team members just come and go from your perspective? Feeling very disengaged and demotivated… do leaders actually care to talk people through these low points in their careers or is this something we need to figure out on our own? Want to talk it out but feeling like a burden more than anything.

Fishes need advice, I'm a M3 and my Partners have repeatedly told me that I am the strongest candidate for promotion this year, they haven't said it for sure though. I got contacted by Deloitte Digital, and I am being offered a Senior Manager role with a slight bigger pay when compared to my estimated salary after promotion (10k per year). Is it worth changing? what are your thoughts?
If you are not a partner, do any of the Big 4 have a mandatory retirement age? I have a friend who is working in industry and has been approached by a few firms as he has a very desirable technical skill set. He is in his 50's and doesn't want to make a move unless there is some runway to keep working. He basically could work as long as he wants where he is at. The pay increase would be significant for him to jump to but if he is mandatorily forced out in a few years it might not be worth it.
