Yes they do, and it’s often the riskiest move given that you have a set amount of time to build your case to partnership and need to rebuild your internal network (much easier said than done!). I always advise people who are coming in at that level to give yourself an extra year of runway (for example, come in at principal (or equivalent) level with a year of tenure, to pad in the margin.

yea for what it’s worth, I have seen three directors (AP equivalent at S&) join MBB. One got downleveled to EM but quickly became AP, the other two i believe both became principals? They were both experienced directors, probably on the verge of partnership within a yr or two here. Also, interestingly both of these two were “subject matter experts” as opposed to more functionally fluid directors

Looks like a massive Exodus happened in Deloitte? Trying to staff a project and there is literally no one to staff with (at least Salesforce practice) and we are having to reach out to contractors. Is this a result of layoffs that happened last year and folks are purely unhappy with pay (not considering project pressure as that can vary/be subjective)? For folks who have been here for a long time, is this a common occurrence or is it especially bad this time around?

A&M fishes how realistic is it to make 2X of your base at your firm? It’s too hard to believe that a manager can make $300-350k in a regular year and directors are Lilly 400-500k.
