Consulting Exit Opportunities

Hi All, I am a second year PL/EM/Manager at MBB considering MSFT sr. Manager role in business development. Was looking to move to Seattle exclusively because of SO. <cont.>

You might be able to swing director if you have 1) relevant experience prior to consulting 2) pull from within the org. 275k all in comp is OK for an early EM/PL exit, but really that’s not why you are leaving. Can tell you that lifestyle at MSFT is pretty darn cushy. And if you can get early promotion timing written in your contract I would consider it. Not many other companies in Seattle. MSFT would be my top pick there. Source - I’m a former MSFT now at BCG

Partner sponsors/mentors tell me that it is ridiculous for me to even consider that since it is an IC role and MSFT. Role is in their fastest growing business and they are matching last year TC. Thoughts?

I wouldn’t take it. Someone I know got a Manager role in BD after 2 years at Microsoft. You can probably get a higher title with that many more years of experience.

So it the higher band of senior manager role. Next level would be Director - not sure if that would be a stretch.

FWIK, PLs/EMs usually went to MSFT at Director level..

Thanks! Will look into that a bit more. That was not what I saw in my research/talking to people.

Ignoring title, what does match last year's pay mean? 250k? Why wouldn't they match this year expected pay as EM2 or even expected AP1?

Hi OP, I am interested in learning where did you land? I am considering similar role and wanted to know if there is any room for negotiations. Thanks!

Still going through the process of negotiations. Not much room apparently- unless they bump up the level (which they are refusing outrightly but let’s see). DM me for more details?

Feel kind of silly saying this, but getting more concerned about covid-19. I’m 28 y/o, generally healthy but think I may have high blood pressure, which I’ve read raises risk. Anyone else feel similar

I don’t get why the entire world is freaking out about Covid19. (1) be cautious, (2) don’t visit elderly relatives, but the way I see it- everyone’s going to come into contact with it- it’s inevitable

One of my biggest takeaways from this whole situation is that the Wall Street Journal is a top, top source of daily news. Content, speed, minimal bias.

Anyone else still have the pinned post about the A wanting to WFH? Super irrelevant now (and tbh I find all pinned posts annoying and wish we could opt out...)?
