Consulting

Up for Senior Manager this year but also considering a lateral offer at ACN Strat for ~25% more TC over next two years. How important is the SM title? Does it significantly change my exit opps in 1yr?

Senior Manager is a significant milestone and generally harder to achieve than prior promotions. You moving to another consulting firm will make you “go to the back of the line” for promotion, as others are in the pipeline, and no longer a guarantee. I think it bodes well to try and make senior manager at Deloitte since you’re so close and you already have a supportive and wide network (assuming this), and the senior manager title opens up a lot of possibilities not just with consulting but also in industry.

Ive experienced both. One time I was reached out for a senior manager role because I was senior manager at EY, without looking at my credentials (also because I don’t have anything populated in linked in other than title). I was also considered for higher roles after showing my CV that exceeded their requirements. Best to keep all options open.

Also significantly discount the bonus they are telling you you could earn over those two years. Almost no one gets the top end.

Agreed! Not assuming top tier bonuses in my calculation

I get the reason to stay with my network.. but I am poised to earn significantly more over next 2-3 years.. any other reasons to not move?

I don't want to go as a SM - feel that's the hardest position to go to a new firm and be successful.. going in as a M gives me a year to establish myself

So what is your reason for considering this switch op? I can’t imagine it’s just the 25% bump when you’re up for promotion.
