On average after first year manager is the most bang for your buck. You get the skills, you get to be a manager, you aren’t obnoxiously expensive relative to skills you bring and you are flexible and junior enough to be shaped to all industries find you interesting and are willing to take chances even if you don’t know anything. After that point, every exit starts becoming about your unique situation/background and experiences. Some get great ones, some not so much.

Thank you very much!

No such thing as sweet spot. It varies. There are probably the *most* opportunities available after the BA/Analyst and Consultant/Associate level but have seen SMs/Associate Partners leave for ridiculous offers leveraging their networks
