Stats for Managers and SMs dreaming to get promoted in the upcoming years - My firm is so understaffed that we have 1300 PPMDs and 1600 SMs but only 1800 Managers in US in the tax service line. What kind of inverted pyramid model is this? The queue is getting bigger than ever and also older.

Who needs managers when you have technology? 😈

What sounds off about that? That sounds like my team's structure as long as I've been here, maybe light on managers compared to historical. People leave all the time.

That’s actually just a regular old pyramid. An inverted pyramid would be less managers than SM’s, who are less than PPMD

That is not necessarily a good assumption

I’m confused by your question. Do you think that there are too few managers? If the firm had more people at the top of the pyramid it wouldn’t make money

I think the numbers are good. If more are needed then they will hire experienced hires. You gotta diversify your teams anyway and so it’s not good that everyone promoted to SM is an internal promote. Bringing in external perspectives helps teams think differently. Don’t stress.

In my group alone 4 managers have left since the year began. I’ll be adding to that list come 9.15

I’m confused by what the take is here. Are you lumping SM with Partners? That doesn’t make sense.
