Probably a better shot at an interview if you apply for associate. Senior associate would be a stretch, but who knows. If it were me I’d shoot for the more gettable position

Thank you, much appreciated

Associate. You probably won't have as much time before promo vs fresh grads if that makes it easier to stomach

Any experienced senior managers that have moved between Big 4 firms? Can you speak towards your experience, any struggles, and opportunities in terms of partner promotion? Frankly, EY path to partner seems to be too clouded (long pipeline, no clear direction/path, uncertainty on promotion cycles, etc.) at the moment and I would like to visit all options. Appreciate the input.

Looking for advice. I’m a sr. associate in cyber at a Big 4 on track for a promo to manager in a year. My old employer reached out to me about coming back as an Assoc. Dir., BISO. Concern is that this BISO role would not have bonuses (nonprofit), so I’d potentially be “throwing away” $ by leaving consulting now. Would opps later on be better having had an associate director role on my résumé before I’m 30? Should I stick it out in consulting? The job is a dream, but short term $ is def less.
