Associate to sr director seems like a stretch. The market is also telling you that. If it’s just for practice at the end of the day take the interviews. Do you have extensive 2nd line mgr experience? If not, sr director is probably not going to happen.

Target highly quantitive IC roles in tech (eg DS) you should easily be able to clear 300k and possibly up to 400k. Sure the title isn’t fancy but the pay is good.

I agree with BCG1. Try a role in Quant and you can get 300K+

Depending on the size & industry, director/sr director can be quite different. That said, typically for F100/500 (maybe?) a jump from asso to (sr) director is a stretch as that's typically what's seen for EM exit opps. Even if you may be a junior EM right now, it's a stretch. The expectations of the role and managing managers, etc... is a gap not many large orgs can swallow. SM roles for asso exits seem quite standard.

To add to my post - my prior experience was in a highly quantitative role. I have a STEM undergrad from a top school but no MBA. I’m doing well at McK and there’s a significant (70-80%) chance I end up staying through to EM and potentially AP. But I want to practice the interview skills and could potentially make a jump for the right combination of WLB/comp/excitement.

There are many reasons why people in the working world are not direct when speaking. They are one of the following: * They pretend they are experts * They are inexperienced * They are full of themselves * They don't know what they are looking for * They love to talk Even if these people have good intentions, be careful of them. Your time is valuable, and the best thing for you to do is to be direct back at them.

Dear super green junior female creative team: you can’t bemoan respectful, constructive feedback as “mansplaining” just ‘cause A) I’m male & B) it kills the wildly off-strategy, hacky, way over budget, impossible to do in 30 seconds, barely thought-through, sophomoric, zero concept idea you combatively keep presenting. Rather, it’s “tactful, benefit from my experience, clearing approval landmines, wanting you to make truly great work & get praise, save you from yourselves”-splaining. Grow up.
