I think the moment you hit SC or one year as SC. It gives you a decent bump and you can join as a SA Avp and have enough time to grow in a particular area in xyz field.

SC level generally has the easiest "good" exits, with M being tougher. At the SM+ levels it's generally a rough proposition to find a good exit, while you generally don't gain much by exiting at the A or C levels. There are exceptions to those generalities, of course, but by and large they tend to be true.
