Dunno the answer to your question but here’s a data point: Left as SM for 40% increase to base and 40% (of old base) additional in RSUs

This is main difference. With sr manager, more likely to leave for a position that receives significant equity (senior/executive VP, director, senior manager, etc)

That’s an impossible question - every exit op is different and every market is different; but, in general, the more experience as senior manager the more likely you leave for a better position such as CFO or VP, as you can add business development to your resume not just accounting (assuming you take on initiatives such as revenue growth or other roles in your firm, such as regulatory compliance) - but, sometimes an org wants a manager that they can vet to takeover for a retiring VP, so you leave with future opportunity in the exit op.

Agree with this. My recommendation would be to test the waters as a manger and if you find something great then take it. If not, keep chugging along in PA and try again at SM.

Recently had an phone interview for an Engineering Position and I was asked what my salary expectations were. I was somewhat caught off-guard and ended up giving a lower number than I should have. I was asked to come in for a 2nd interview today and I'm regretting having given a lower number initially. Is there anyway to recover from this if my interview goes further down the road, or am I stuck at the range I intially provided? Thanks for any input and sorry for thr long question.

@ BCGers & Bainies - Making a comparison between BCG and Bain offers.

This seems to be pitched as added advantage over BCG comp as a PL. Skeptical about the claim as I assumee overall comp at any level in same geography will be similar across MBB. Is there any nuance to this?

Few recruiters reached out to me and have been offering a hefty salary. Similar situation last year was different. I.e I see salary difference of 30 to 40% in base salary range. I am too excited to take the offer’s, but also scared that is it just momentarily and when market stabilizes they would fire folks???? The companies reaching out last year and this year are different ; none of them are big tech companies.
