OP, similar in background - have been at Deloitte for 5 years after PhD, looking for pharma exit ops. Any tips on where to start?

Ex clients are best bet. Not sure about D, but pharma partners who like you should be able to help - though this obviously tips your hat. I wasn’t really looking for an exit - had a client reach out. Also, LinkedIn recruiter traffic seems heavier than usual right now

How much room for negotiation is there on role level when moving to MBB as a lateral? Currently M2 at a boutique founded by ex-MBB partners. We often compete with MBB. Recruiters at each firm have steered me towards joining at Associate (M) /Consultant (BB) level which I believe is common practice for lateral moves. This would likely result in a small pay cut for me, even at A3/C3. All have suggested a 6-12 month window to Manager promotion is possible. Would appreciate some advice, thanks!
