Just got approached for a senior manager position at fortune 100 company that is an IC role…? Even the director level would have limited leadership opportunity… I guess it’s better than all of the scrum master and project manager roles that seem to fall into my inbox but just odd leveling. Am I crazy or is it weird for a Senior Manager to be an IC???

Is this at a bank? Seems like rampant title inflation

Not normal at all big pharma though, I’m a manager with direct reports in pharma currently

Its not uncommon at a lot of firms. The title is a leveling function. SM is a peer of all other SMs in the company. In corporate strategy it's not uncommon to have a SVP with a team of only 30 people while other SVPs have thousands.

Back again with a question for the McKinsey folks! 1. Is it true that if you are internal (specifically PD) you are not eligible for a performance bonus? Just base and the 401K profit sharing? 2. I know McKinsey offers a percentage of your salary into a retirement fund. The recruiter painted it as a range (from 7-12%), but other fish in the main consulting bowl said it’s either 7 OR 12% (no in between) based off of if you’re client facing or internal - which is true?
