Senior Managers and Directors

What are the good exits for Senior Managers? I keep hearing how people leave for 2x their salary.

2x from Senior Manager seems difficult unless you are jumping to CFO or really close to that level.

Another one just came by basically same salary "plus bonus potential."

Ya the most i have seen offered to me is like 20%. And frankly I can’t complain with my current job at EY so refuse to leave for such a small pay bump. I consider it small because I have it pretty good here.

I just considered and passed on a VP role but it would have only been a 15% bump. The job itself looked pretty appealing but I'm happy where I'm at and needed more than that to make it worth seriously considering. If I hated my job or was really looking for a change I would have been all over it.

Right??? Same here. I am starting to get shy about telling them my salary requirement. And that is really what I make right now. Where is all the $$?

I would love to know where these opportunities are. I went the opposite route, left b4 to go local and took a pay cut. I considered it buying my life back since I now work 300-400 hours less/ year and actually take my vacation time.

Has anyone had the feeling that their manager was holding them back/working against them, instead of actually helping them grow in their career? For e.g., turning down ideas? How to handle?

Has anyone here left consulting for a completely different career path and then returned? I’m thinking of taking a risk and pursuing culinary school & a job in it while I’m still young. I want to be immersed in it and will likely have to quit consulting. If it doesn’t work out, I would come back. Is the gap in consulting/industry related work experience going to hurt me badly?
