Is it reasonable to jump to a manager position in the industry from a consultant position in MBB or T2? (EMEA) I dislike my job more and more everyday, but I see very little way out at my level and with similar pay.

Manager exit from Associate/Consultant at MBB is very common

I think your observation is accurate. Tbh one of the big benefits of having ‘manager’ in you title is that it is a role that Industry thinks it understands and is more willing to give you more senior offers. Even trying to explain that Snr associate is equivalent of a manager in some firms is a struggle.

Family law associate. I run a docket of about 40-50 cases and work about 50 hours a week. I currently make about 125K (self-employed, no benefits). Between jury trials for CPS termination cases and the highly adversarial nature of family law, I find this job to be incredibly draining, as I have horrid work/life balance and struggle with constant anxiety. I recently got an offer with a personal injury firm. 110K, full benefits, for a non-litigation/docket manager role. Thoughts?

Serious question: I’ve worked in MBB, Big 4 and tier 2, and the number one reason I’ve heard for younger (less than 5 YoE) talent leaving is that they are “not doing strategy work.” It’s also the top request from younger staffers to do on every engagement team I’ve led. The question: Are there any consulting firms really letting new talent do this? Or is this the top delusion of new MBAs entering the consulting world?
