Manager due to better exit opportunities. But it does take a while to hit manager so if you’re unhappy as a C or SC, it is fine to Leave then too

I think Manager. A consulting manager is kind of a known quantity in the market; industry expects them to have solid core consulting skills, be structured problem solvers, artful communicators and able to lead small teams and workstreams. But not so senior that you become siloed or jaded. In many ways, I wish I could have jumped to industry at the Manager grade. Now I’m locked in

I’ve got a few interviews next week with PwC Strategy& but they are part of a larger hiring event that seem to all interview with the PwC new equation/professional framework.

Anyone have any insight or is this how they are interviewing across the board now for consulting roles?

I've been out of accounting for about 2 years because I decided to move to another country for life experiences. I will be moving back mid 2022 with my fiance and will go back to Audit most likely. My firm said they would gladly take me back when I left. If i was making 65k as a senior 2 years ago is it reasonable to ask for 72k and a 10k signing bonus even with a 2 year break? Would it be more reasonable if I went to a different firm instead? How much do you think is reasonable?
