By management I assume you are talking about Management consulting/strategy? It would be difficult to get the first role in this domain as a Manager, you'll need to start from a lower level. With your YOE that won't sound motivating. If you ask me, growing in your current domain would be a better option, 7 years from now when you are an Engineering Manager making far bigger bucks than a Consulting Manager, with hardly any programming to do, you won't regret it

Yes, you can without prior exp. If you have skills, you will surely get through..or try a mba and get an internship then apply

Thanks for wise advice.. appreciate it

I’ve been through 5+ weeks of interviews with a company that will IPO next year and they did a bait and switch on me with the offer: it was advertised as “Head of” and then during the offer-walk-through-meeting today they said “oh btw we changed the title to ‘Senior Manager’ for this role”. They offered me a salary I made 4 years ago as a manager. They offered stock options with an exercise price TBD 1 year from now…which is when they’re hitting IPO. Is that normal for stock options?

i just had an excellent review with my supervisors. we are aligned i am ready to be promoted. i will be moving from project manager to senior project manager. the catch; my company has laid off 75% of its staff, and cut our salaries by 25%. timing is unclear, since we work in the live entertainment space. what is fair to ask for? i have 7 years work force experience, am the only one in my position, touch every creative deliverable the agency makes, and updated and streamlined 10+ processes.

After traditional investment banking, I can safely say banking is better than consulting in regards to prestige, income, and sophistication of work. While consulting has better hours, nicer culture.

We are closer to the end of this initial selling than the beginning. All this technical selling on a 15 minute chart simply brings us back to a 4 Hour Halfway Back long of May 20 to Highs. And, we find support right in the middle of this HWB long. I think we can go a little lower to break the long in a dip below the 61.8% red line. Alternatively, we can hold here and rally. Either way, tomorrow or next week, we are due to rally 300 Nasdaq points. Take profits and be smart.
