Typical is probably L5, but it depends. Mostly based on YOE and specific relevant YOE

Depends not just on the role but also on your years of experience and interview performance. More senior folks enter at L6-L7, more junior managers L4-L5

L6 with 7 yoe

L6 / 7.5YOE

Yes

EM 7 YOE offered L5. Can I push back and ask for L6?

A level change requires restarting the interview process. There’s no ability to change without reinterviewing.

Depends on the role. If you are applying anything. Remotely close to tech or cloud tech you are probably looking at L5

MBB seems to come in around level 5-6 about 80-90% of the time Big 4 managers join as level 5 about 90% of the time.

I think mbb candidates seem to mostly apply for S&O - which is an area that is full of former mbb. Which means that they are naturally at advantage You will see big 4 candidates apply to the other roles. The issue is that most of the other roles have a technology component. Unfortunately the big 4 dont give their people the opportunity to develop the deep technical experience to get past that interview For the few that do...they end up as level 5s
