Literally the best deal is to get higher pay with less responsibility. When you get promoted, you’d get a bump up. Why shoot your self in the foot and set Manager expectations at a new company when you were just promoted to Manager?

Negotiating for the title at EY shouldn’t be that big of a deal...but if they were giving you $165 as a senior they should be willing to come up on comp for more responsibility. You should of course try and get a bump from Daddy D (but be prepared for a lowball or flat out no). You could turn down the current offer from EY and apply to a M role. Seems like you would be a good candidate. But they may not have an opening for an M with your skill set right now.

What’s more important to you, title or money? If you take the job with EY at 165 as a senior, you’re looking at a $6,500 promo bonus + performance bonus + salary increase once you get promoted to manager. Depends on how quickly you think that can happen, and if it’s worth performing in a SC vs Manager role

I would do the following if I were you OP: 1) Ask the recruiter that you would like to be considered for an M role since you are an M at D. 2) If EY is unable to bring you in at M, ask on how the progression to M would work. We have changed our promotion cycle to include mid-year promotions in addition to our usual year-end promotions. If you can’t be brought in as M, it’s probably because we don’t currently have an open role. Promotions at EY recently became official on 10/1, so various roles that were open were probably filled by folks who were promoted.

Is an M at D advisory really more than a senior in consulting at any firm? I met a new M in advisory with 4 years of exp a few weeks back.

What area I’m PI at EY? Depending on the group, this is pretty normal at EY and usually you can go up for promotion the next year. Plus you’re getting a pay bump. You should try to push for manager but likely they will say no. I’ve seen this many times at EY

Can you use the offer to negotiate your pay at Deloitte? Going down a level for higher pay is not fun, been there done that. You may get frustrated with the level of responsibility.

Yah this is bs, looks like I’m not the only one they’re trying to lowball into an S5 role

Why on earth are they not matching your title?
