Been at the same company 6+ years, and killing my quota consistently (last 5 years 25%+ when team growth goals were 3-6%). Coworker got promoted to sales manager when she finished an MBA and now I will be reporting to her. Her only sales experience is at this company (6 yrs) and numbers were average. I have 15+ years sales experience and an MA. I asked to continue to report to the director, but told no. Time to move on to a company that values my contribution? This feels like a demotion.

Hey all!
I'm new to this bowl and have a non-traditional background.
I joined McK after my MBA. Currently here for almost 2 years (Associate, going for EM) and I've done mostly transformation projects.
I'm considering to recruit for PE Ops instead of staying around.
Based on what I read here, I have a few questions:
1) Do I need modeling skills if I'm NOT trying to join the deal team?
2) What's comp in the long term compared to consulting?
3) At McK I'm working 70-80h/week. How's wlb in PE Ops?
