I left before my senior promotion and it had zero impact on my career. Zero regrets. The only snobs who care about tenure in B4 are those pricks who exit PA as senior managers and are dropped into technical roles or SEC reporting and they think less of early exits sometimes I felt going through interviews with those types.

I did! Great choice. People know you don’t really learn much just having the title senior without any experience as senior to back it up. Go switch now and in 6 months you’ll be in for a raise

If you find the right opportunity - do it! I’m leaving 4 months before senior promo for an industry job with a senior title. Don’t want to slave away for them another busy season. Good luck, OP!

EY2 good luck with that type of attitude.

Thanks! I found a few roles I’m interested in and qualified for but people keep telling me to stick it out just so it looks good on my resume. I could do it and peace 6 months after, but then we’re talking about another year from now that I have to stay in PA. 🤷‍♂️

I’d give it 9 more months. Get the promo and do the job for a short period of time.

I myself am up for Senior in September and currently shopping for industry jobs. What’s more important and crucial is the number of years you’ve accumulated on the job than some fancy title.

@EY4 makes sense. That’s what the recruiters have told me. I have 3 busy seasons under my belt and she seemed to say I’ll be in the same hiring pool for awhile regardless of title

Similar to graduating from a good college, making senior allows you to demonstrate the ability to succeed in a challenging environment.

Ey2 knows where it’s at

I was a manager in industry and I'm a manager in PA now. I don't know need your myopic advice. This is reality - people in Big 4 who exit at senior manager and director to industry jobs have attitude. Maybe they're used to getting their poles polished by staff tools like yourself that feed their ego.

Only reason I came back was to try a different business line and I didn't need to swill your brand of kool-aid to do it.

Try making manager first yourself and/or going to industry first before you come to your epiphanies on Fishbowl about how things are.

Lol I am a manager. Sounds like someone is pretty butt hurt. Triggered 😂. You must be a real treat in real life.

I just had the initial call with HR. I was told that Senior Analysts start at 56k and Business Operations Specialists start at 67k. I was told the next step was Junior Manager but they rarely started anyone at that level. I'm shocked. Is that accurate or are they trying to lower my expectations?

Yes, I know there's a lot going on in the world, but they still reply in group chats, online date, and post on social media regularly. I feel like everyone wants to be busy/have plans but not actually take the time to invest in relationships.
