No they would probably exit out as execs in industry

Depends on definition of middle manager and depends on whether you mean middle management at the firm or in industry

Just so I’m clear, only S& makes the cut (but not broader PwC advisory), while its not just Monitor, but in fact all S&O, and rest of Deloitte are lumped in with MBB?

No execs for sure. Our managers leave from director to Sr. Directors, our principals leave as vp (think this is comparable to jr. partner for you) and our partners leave as c suite

Atk1 so where would you draw the line in your hierarchy?

What does middle management actually mean? I’ve never heard the term used in my time here

Thanks, but I am basically asking for a definition. Talking about middle management at a consulting firm, since partners usually stay on.

Any consulting firm... I just know the hierarchies of the ones I named

Newly minted partners at big4 are middle management in the grand scheme of things

For us internally managers are middle management, principals are part of leadership

No. PLs and Ps are. Even our newest partner has equity and the same voting rights as our most tenured.

Does it make sense strategically to lateral from T2 to MBB in the next few months (assuming late summer start) if I want to do 2022 on-cycle? Will funds care that I’d only have a few months of experience at MBB / would I be poorly perceived for wanting to leave MBB after a year?
