Has anyone successfully negotiated a promo when going to Alvarez & Marsal PEPI? Would be going to M this year at current firm, hesitant to give that up even though SA TC at A&M would still be higher. Don’t want to get stuck at SA/SC level.

Almost always take the higher comp at the lower level. You barely have anything to lose. Higher comp for “lower” responsibility is a no brainer for me.

I hear ya, but I have a genuine desire to work as a manager. I’ve been an SC for long enough and really want/feel more than ready to take the next step.

I was in the same situation few years ago but I clearly said I will not join if not offered a Manager position and they came back with a Manager offer. I spoke directly to the lead MD. FYI, that was the best decision I made. I’ll give you a small tip that others have used. Some have negotiated a guaranteed promotion. For example, let’s say you join as a SC but negotiate a guaranteed promotion in the next cycle. This will give you the time to understand the lay of the land and for them to evaluate you. Unless you mess up big time you’ll be promoted.

A&M 1 curious to know what a manager names at A&M ? Is it significantly higher than big 4 or higher than T2s and MBB ?

Was in the same position SC. Newly promoted M this round and got an SA offer from A&M. Went through a few discussions and got the standard line of “we’d rather bring you in lower with lower expectations in order for you to kill it and then move to the next level”. Ultimately for me, the money was right so I decided to proceed with the offer.

I’m starting at A&M in June as a SA. I was in a similar position in that I would’ve made M at my current firm later this year in the next promotion cycle, the comp at A&M was good enough to keep the SA title for another 1-1.5 yrs. I’ll be in their TAG group, not PEPI, but it’s a similar TC structure. The TC range I was given for SA was $160-200 and $250-300 for M. I’ll be at $120 base.

I’ve always gotten the advice that when you want to switch jobs you should take interviews from places you’re not actually interested in, so you can understand your value in the market and have better negotiating power. I’m doing that rn - took a couple interviews to gauge my skills, my market value, and see what I need to work on for interviews that I actually care about. However, I feel really guilty about wasting their time and going all the way knowing I’ll just say no at the end. Wwyd?

As a first generation college graduate, first one to land a job in Corp.
