It’s not rare. In MBB and BB IBD they recruit a lot of kids with wealthy backgrounds. They do well in those fields because they have connections either from family or the schools they have attended. More connections you have the more business you can bring into the firm.

Not every firm works like big accounting firms and their insane partner path lengths. 8 years is pretty typical in law.

you gotta know exactly what is needed for promotion. you gotta have the network. you gotta have a supporting spouse. the odds are against you.9

Now look at other partners in the same firm to see if that’s normal or just an anomaly

That’s fantastic that they are able to make partner if they are able to accomplish what a partner is supposed to regardless of length of service. I hope that mentality is adopted in big 4 as opposed to length of service. I know some managers that would make a phenomenal partner because they bring in business, have the technical ability, people management skills and is a great leader, but he hasn’t gone through the ranks yet. He will probably break off on his own or join as a partner at a smaller firm.

I’m more fascinated by the fact you described their experience as 6.7 years….so their experience is 6 years, 8 months and 12 days? Good to know 👍

funny

6.7 years out of college or did they have other work experience?

Total YoE is 8 years.. graduated bachelors in 2011

Some places have the mentality of you eat what you kill. They promote based on ability vs a standard number of years at each level. Kudos to whomever makes partner after 6.7 years.

revenue drives partnership admittance everywhere. if you can bring in enough money (and actually own the account(s), meaning they would follow you to a competitor) you can be a partner
