@EY Folks - What does an Executive Director Level equate to at other firms ?

Not sure about other places but at EY they are non equity partners. They're all lumped together as PPEDs -- partner/principal, executive director. Typically more focused on client delivery in 1-2 subject matters. They sell but not as much as Partners. They are salaried employees and are paid well. More recently some new hires come in as ED, prove their case, and are promoted to Partner in a few years. However, within the firm it's recognized as a destination role.


It depends. Are you a market facing ED or large scale delivery promo’s ED? In the market with a strong book you could snag/be on par with a Partner level role elsewhere. As an ED, you’re a non-equity Partner. You do the math.


Where are you Executive?

Accenture. Planning to get a referral through channels but unsure if that’s a Level in EY or a “Marketing Title”

ED Is not a marketing title. All the big 4 firms have a non equity partner position. Usually they have relationship with clients, known to be skilled on one area and capacity to bring revenues. What does an Accenture Executive do?

Also not considered an owner in the firm. So not quite a partner principal but still at the top.

ED is very similar level as Partner except they are employees not equity owners. Many of them run very substantial positions within their practice. I think it's likely that an EY ED will be a managing director at ACN (I worked for ACN for almost 10 years so familiar with their leveling), especially with a few years of experience at that level.

FET - has anyone done 2 rounds of letrozole for a transfer? I did one round of 5mg daily, but at my day 13 scan it still looks the same as baseline, so my doc wants me to do another round of 7.5mg right away. Seems strange, and I’m debating asking to just fully scrap the cycle and go to HRT…

How has been the approval rate after RFE for H1B?

My experience of working in US in Big 4 Strategy has been that non desi people just dont want to get into the detail of things. Things like business case or understanding of client data are skilsets that they cant or wont learn. All they want to do is PMO - manage actions, make TO dos and speak without context on client meets. Dont want to be biased by mu own exp. How has been yours ?

Feeling that my brain has been on “auto pilot” mode for years. I am Principal in one of the top consulting firms, promoted on fast track basis, so have not been “lazy” and doing good at work. But everything feels the same, nothing gets me intellectually stimulated anymore, and now I feel like if the trend continues, I might lose my ability to adapt and learn new things altogether. Does anybody else feel the same way? (Contd).
