Supervisor is like a third year senior, you’ll have some work that will be at the manager level and some work that’ll be senior level. Typically anyone thats a supervisor gets promoted to manager within a year if they are performing well.

Thank you! That’s super weird because the role I applied and interviewed for was a manager role but no one mentioned anything until I got the offer letter.. Almost feels like a bait & switch?

It’s very rare they would hire someone that was a SA straight into a manger position. Also could be they considered you for a manager position and just based on interviews decided to go with supervisor. But agreed they should have mentioned that early on the process.

If in consulting it’s typically more than 1 year at super. But if your title here is project manager I would really fight for manager role instead

Yeah I have 5+ years project management experience and serve as a lead for 2 program areas in my current role.. I’m just questioning if it makes sense to go from Big 4 to RSM for a lateral move. Thank you for your input!!

While I think it was bad form to spring the Supervisor role on you at the offer stage, I also think it would be tough to negotiate to come in as Manager from B4 Senior role. Supervisor is a common entry point for more experienced staff. I’ve seen some experienced hires receive a quick promo to Manager after onboarding as a Supervisor (even one well under a year). But you’ll need to perform very well to make that leap within a year. Essentially you’ll need to prove ability to perform at the Manager level, including taking proactive client management and business development initiative. Otherwise most take 2-3 years at Supervisor level for the promo.

Thank you for your perspective!

I’d turn it down

funny

Never understood why this position existed lol, but yeah it’s basically a combo between the two. Experienced senior associates from other firms usually come in as supervisors at RSM and get promoted within a year or two.
