I recently interviewed for a Manager role at a Big 4, but then received an offer for Senior Associate. Is this something I can push back on?

KPMG did that to me as well so I said okay, sorry that we wasted each other’s time!

Sounds very Deloitte. If you’re not currently a manager that’s a tough sell, however the firm should have said something if they had no intention of hiring you as a manager.

You and the other 500 M's. Enjoy the revolving door...

If you really think you’re M level then why not?

Is your title right now Consultant? Only ask because sometimes users titles do not update here. Also how many YOE?

Yeah don’t take it and push back.

Lol…nice bait-and-switch

C1 is right it’s very Deloitte move

Nah op said PWC. Just got offered M at Deloitte and I’m currently a C with 5 YOE

It happens, and you can try, but no guarantees. You gotta decide what’s important to you and go from there. At some places it’s a policy that if you don’t check certain boxes (previous big four experiences, or mba) you’re not coming in at M.

Only if the offer is extremely good. If so, get promoted quickly and get an even bigger bump.

If the partner doesn’t trust you with the client, it’s a tough spot to be in since you don’t have a relationship with that person. Agree with above - unless the offer is very good, seriously think about declining. You’re probably a year or two from making Manager.

F that

I shifted from Consulting over to a CSM role and am finding that even though I’m in a better place culture and pay wise, I’m feeling every day social anxiety that comes with a customer-facing role, making me think I’m not cut out for this and that I should move to something more internal, like corporate strategy. My worry is if I make this type of move, a paycut will always have to follow. Has anyone else felt this and can offer some advice?

Hey Ladies - my fiancé is trying to move to Boston or New York in the next few months, but his field is pretty niche in finance (long only investing). He works at a mutual fund in Chicago, and has been putting feelers out. We both feel that more postings will open up in January, but if anyone has some insight on recent job openings that might be a good fit, I’d love to know so I can point him that way. A chance to connect him with someone would also be extremely helpful! Long distance is hard.
