I’ve been promised early manager by numerous people including our OTMP in 2020. The issue is that I’m burnt out, gained a lot of weight and I can’t imagine doing winter busy season. What should I do?

Go on a long vacation. Don’t think about work or check email. Comeback get manager promo and leave

Take a vacation, get the promotion and then decide whether to stay or leave.

I guess my only comment would be not to worry too much about the promotion. I was early promoted to senior and to manager and .... it’s not that big a deal in the long run (although it can feel like it). I think you’re taking the right action. But focus on your needs and health first, ignore the promo. Everyone else will only care about total years of experience, and the story you tell. The salary of the early promo is not full manager salary (in my case and the experience of others). Anyways. Focus on yourself and your health. But don’t sweat the promo. That’s my $.02

Ask to delay your promo so you can work on rebalancing your life before all the new stress that comes with being manager.

Take a vacation, think about whether or not you can work the hours that the current managers are working, then leave if you honestly think you can’t. If you can’t, start reaching out to your friends in other firms that do the same thing you do and see if you can have more life there.

Thanks for the advice everyone. I’m not worried about the workload as I’ve been acting manager on all my clients for the past 12 months but I feel I stretched myself too thin last year with 2500 client service hours and haven’t had time to recover as the 2500 really ate into my health. I’ll be taking the leave of absence and skipping winter busy season. If the firm bitches or doesn’t give me early manager, I’ll just go to another Big4 and they will give it to me on the spot in this market.

Take a deep breath, drink a glass of water, get in your car, drive to Mexico. Never look back.
