So what kind of roles do managers go to that seniors can’t go to? As a manager, I’m getting manager of accounting interviews. Why is it worth staying an extra year and a half to be manager? What other roles open up?

Okay in general your best time to leave is going to be early manager or wait till late manager and then leave. If you’re getting Manager positions as a senior 3 those are going to be the same sort of positions you will get as a newly minted M1. It’s only after like 2 years as an Manager that you can start trying for Director or SM level positions elsewhere. But those roles are harder to find so if you want to jump, sooner is probably better than later

I left as a 3rd year senior for a manager of financial reporting position for a large company. Left that role after 1.5yrs bc I hated the company and now director of finance at a company I love. I guess my point is you don’t have to stay in public you can also get promos in private

Also to get to Director or Vp level most companies want to see a mix of public and private experience

Do you mean as a senior you’re getting manage interviews?

Yes that’s what I meant

Some companies want to pay a lower pay scale so they will target seniors for their manager roles. Managers will be targeted for higher paying manager roles in industry.
