How does EYs senior manager translate into a MBB model? Working alongside an EY SM who thinks they’re a junior/associate partner but whose responsibilities seem to match an EM. Also is it normal for Big 4s to ignore juniors? This SM refuses to listen to anything I say and gets annoyed anytime I speak in a meeting or when I said I was talking to the partner directly - whereas my McK team proactively encourages me too.

Im guessing you’re at mbb and working with EY on a project. That is very different from interacting with your own team and the MBB AP/EM will likely also be dismissive to the EY consultants. Going directly to their boss is an escalation and will make it seem like they can’t do their job. Y’all are competitors at some level so they will treat you that way. Don’t take it personally.

Assumptions are correct minus the fact the EY SM is annoyed at me for going to my own partner - not theirs.

EY senior managers are indeed one level below full partner, so associate partner would be a fair comparison. Not normal that they would not listen to junior resources, typically it's a collaborative atmosphere.

Whoooaa sound like I’d enjoy the Mck environment a lot more. That’s how it was for me before I joined EY.

Here is my idea for a startup! I collect all the data from career transitions and use Data Analytics to predict the most likely career transitions. I could start with consulting.

I have all the data to do this, but wanted your thoughts. Would the output of this be relevant to you?
