Not so much about reputational risk - mostly about what you want. Industry job or manager at EY? Whatever you pick, it’s all in - no second guessing... good luck

It’s always curious to me why firms are content to ignore the wants of top talent until someone else wants them (assuming you had a conversation with your leadership before seeking another offer)

like

Is there a real reputational risk to me in staying now? She really wants to support me for going for Manager and is willing to do what it takes to keep me but wants my commitment.

Have also already accepted industry role so would need to renege on that.

Hey, OP. What made you renege? I didn’t renege and actually politely declined firm’s offer.

D1, it's cheaper to lose good people than to set a precedent and raise the expectations of the many more mediocre people.

Pick a side and stick with it. Whichever side you choose the Partner will understand. You won't be the last attrition case at EY

@D1- so given I have been made a counter that i will need to keep quiet, would you recommend I take it?

Hard to say with the information at hand. The two main factors I would be weighing up are if I wanted to be in consulting or industry, and my relationship with that partner and their seniority.

Hey @D1 she is the head of our whole practice. The industry role would be a good fit for my skills and experience, and they are a client of the firm.

So do you want to be in consulting or industry?

Hey Director1, I ended up taking the industry role.

Congrats on the new job 🙂

Thanks! My partner ended up countering me, (not as high) told me it was a huge mistake to leave before Manager, etc but I felt that this was a good opportunity for me.

@D1 hoping to come back as a boomerang
