Is there anyone not phased by job titles and seniority? Don’t get me wrong, I have respect for people in senior roles (whether it’s at my firm or my client) and have a high enough EQ to work with people across all levels. But, I find it amusing when I see people assume others higher up than them are better and so you should treat them special.

I don’t care about the titles. Consulting is an apprenticeship so if a senior person doesn’t develop me I don’t respect them. And I care a lot about developing the junior folks.

No. People poke fun at me because I network with MDs the same way I do Analysts, same humor and personality. It has worked and I have a number of leadership “friends” who I’ve hung out with for fun. Don’t be afraid be yourself. Titles just mean you’ve been in the workforce longer or shorter than me. I do bxtch out at major C-suite but still significantly more comfortable than some of my peers.

Meeee! Probably because I started college at 24 so age is much less of a factor for me than it is for my peers. I find that the higher ups respect me way more than my peers who are shaking in their boots with intimidation. I’ve assumed it’s because they don’t smell fear when they interact with me, but I don’t know for sure that it’s the reason.

Phased? No. But definitely aware. Respect for the chain of command will help you if you care about career progression.

No but be careful My sense is if you need to use your title to convey a pt, you’ve already lost At crunchtime though, militant approach via level can be a necessity
