Seniors tend to spend more time handholding the staff and coaching them. Officially, performance management and reviews of said staff are M and SM responsibility. I think of the difference in assignments I give my staff and seniors as this: Staff get detailed, bullet point instructions on what I want on slide 4, 6 and 10. Seniors get a detailed outline of what I want in the entire deck, maybe an example from another client,and told to have fun, call me if you have questions.

Happy to help. Caveat that your experiences may vary - lord knows I had my share of micromanaging managers when I was a senior, but I prefer not to pay that particular legacy forward. In general, an increased level of ownership is expected as you go up the ranks though.

Deloitte has BA for 2 years, consultant for 2 years, then SC after. EY has staff consultant for 2 years then SC. Slightly more responsibility placed on SC at Deloitte than EY given twice the amount of experience is required. Neither is better or worse- you’ll get good oops at both, I just wouldn’t let level be the deciding factor (unless pay is substantially different). I used to be at EY so I got to see both.

SC you may manage someone (the good ones will manage a few), but you won’t be leading teams unless they seriously trust you at EY. When I switched to deloitte I was shocked because I was the engagement manager at M level and supporting other engagements too- that’s usually SM at EY. Leveling is just a bit different.

I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted. I know everyone's situation is different but I can't help feeling snubbed. How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible? I dont want it to come to having to bring another offer to the table..

Been getting a ton of recruiter outreach messages lately, and a lot of them are attractive roles that I would never even be on a shortlist for. I'm a mid-range analyst at best. Anyone else getting these messages too? Is the market really that thin? I find it a bit unbelievable because I spent two years unemployed and barely getting interviews prior to COVID.

Hey Fb friends - need an advise. My current firm hasn’t stated my GC process yet and with current processing time it appears to be somewhere around 12-15 months time to get PERM approved. In addition my current firm needs leadership approval & they make me sign a reimbursement form in case I quit. On other hand, I have approved i40 from my ex-employer (Big4) who fired me last fall, I don’t know if they will hire me back. Since I am from India and the date of filing appears like going to be…cont.

Being that I’m anemic, current labs showed I need to have 2 iron infusions. I put in for 2 more days off to have that done. He told me in the future to wait until a work day! We done have any until December!!

Recruiter from Amazon reached out for a phone screen for a L7 role st Amazon - Principal Product Manager, Technical. I'm a first year M and have been in consulting mostly. I do have the technical expertise the role requires but no product management experience per se. Think L7 at Amazon for me is a reach. My concern is if I interview and fail, I will be barred from interviewing from another role for 6 to 12 months. Should I give it a shot or save my chance for something more realistic (e.g. L6)?
