Former Senior Manager in Advisory here - does anyone feel like it’s a steep wall trying to break into tech industry for any role that has a manager title (e.g., Manager, XYZ Function)?

I’ve managed tons of teams and managed their career dev while at Big 4...what am I not seeing that I should see?

Got locked outside of client site because my contractor badge won't let me in past a certain time... Screw it time to go home, but wait... My laptop is still inside... 🙄
Sent an email to my network looking for a few points of research to round out a simple deck and am now being hounded by a team trying to sell their services to my client who doesn't need it. #sharks
What is the best way to ask hiring managers about their people development skills? Finding it kind of hard to gauge with all these virtual interviews but want a manager who will actually help me grow.
Recently had my opinion shut down because “as a white male, I was coming from a position of privilege and could not possibly understand”. Excuse me? My skin pigmentation has more bearing than any life experience, education and past hardships and condemns me to being inherently incapable of ever being able to grasp certain concepts?
I have not heard back from the recruiter after interviews, but hiring manager recommended me for the role. Recruiter said she will get bank on Wednesday, nothing since then. Should I message recruiter or Hiring manager?
Almost a week with On-site interview and it’s been a radio silence from my recruiter. Should I reach back to them or is it normal? Not at all impatient, just trying to know what’s the norm.

How do you handle being asked to support “diversity recruiting” when you don’t actually recommend your firm to diverse talent? How do you manage the optics of saying no and potentially saying no repeatedly?

If I'm forced to use my vacation, floater, etc. towards my study leave for CFE but I have vacation booked for right after CFE, will PwC still let me take that vacation as a "leave of absence"?
Will Big 4 let you stay as SM if you don’t want to make partner but are still hitting SM targets? Once you take the promotion BS and partner-promotion-chasing out of the equation SM is quite fun!
Have people had success applying to FAANG, MBB, VC etc roles on LinkedIn or should I be going about this another way?
Today is my 40th birthday and I'm doing it big this year. Took the day off to relax and catch up on reading, cooking and drawing. 😃 No emails, no slack, no meetings.
Why is there an overlap / inverse correlation between salary and designation? For example there are senior consultants making a lot more than managers, and managers making a lot more than SM.
Monthly Retainer: has anyone ever converted themselves from project fee to a retainer for a client? pros.. cons? I want to make sure it’s a win-win situation. When should I bring it up? I think Im being phased out due to high project fees.. so a retainer seems like the right move.

Former McKinsey employee was caught working with his COO to impersonate a YouTube executive while trying to raise funds from Goldman Sachs. Is this what constitutes business these days?

As head of a division in industry, we work a lot with vendors. Increasingly I am noticing that men working at vendor firms have offer resistance when I ask for more details/invoice timings etc. I recently had a partner from a mid size firm telling me that he will be sending the invoice without phase completion. Ofcourse, I pushed back since the work is not done and it's not per contract, and he comes back asking me to be flexible. I am ex MBB, and am quite surprised at this attitude. Cont...
