In financial services, everyone is literally a VP. It is their SC / manager equivalent. I made VP in industry at Merrill/Morgan when I was 24 yo. Accumulated 15 years of experience and exited to consulting as a M. If you mean VP to be one step away from CEO that different. But in different sectors vp is literally a dime a dozen and the biggest catch all of staff

Depends. Could be SM to Partner/PPMD. There is a big range.

Was thinking from the F500 angle. We are talking about 5B to 500B top line. Plus, for some, VP is like CEO-4 (with funny titles like SEVP, EVP, SVP etc.) In other cases, VP could be a direct report to CEO too (CEO-1)

Vp = senior consultant. I was an ED with 15 ye and came in as a M.

Exiting to a VP in F500 typically would mean one is on the more senior end of SM/Director in consulting (perhaps even a young md/principal). This could vary based on other experience outside of consulting as well as the size of the F500 company (e.g., f50 vs f450+)

Op, VP = SM. You cannot come in any higher if you don’t have prior relevant experience.

Disagree - was talking to a F500 as a tenured Partner for a VP role previously

It depends on the company. Further, there's a lot of subjectivity at companies. I saw one hiring a VP titled role that more closely resembled a mid-level individual contributor role. That's hardly what I'd consider a VP.

Highly dependent on the firm. I've had stints at three F500s over the course of my career, all of which had VP roles. The first was around SM level, the second ranged from SC-SM level, and at my current firm it's senior PMD level.

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?
