Consultant.

Depends on the bank and the consulting firm. Typically in a 4 layered investment back (Analyst, Associate, VP, MD) would map to an EM/Principle/SM at a consulting firm with 4-5layers. This would vary based on the tenure/experience of the VP and of the consulting equivalent. Based on friends in ibanking - a VP is the day to day project lead/man manager and is responsible for giving direction and owning all deliverables created with an associate and analyst below them actually doing the work. Not sure how selling is factored in. What makes a comparison challenging is the size and scope of consulting firms has exploded leading to the pyramid adding many more layers. Ibanking has remained roughly stable in the scope of projects that they deal with.

Depends on the bank but generally yes.

Depends the bank.

With no prior consulting experience most firms would bring u in as a SC with a quick path to M unless you’re a disaster.

Adding on to what the others say, it's *generally* somewhere in the SC-M range. You've got banks like Capital One where non-client facing VPs are legit executives but client facing VPs are in that SC-M bucket, and other banks have VP as a catch-all title that can cover anything from maybe SC level, if not C level, to what is effectively a global MD level. From what I've seen of the banking industry, though, I'd say probably roughly 80-85% of VPs are in that SC-M bucket.

My company is bleeding talent! I took up a PM role 3 months ago at a not-so-hot smaller tech company.

I haven’t built deep enough relationships here to probe about their reasons for leaving, but I’m really concerned. The company is undergoing many changing priorities and acquisitions in play which definitely could be why. What would you do in my shoes?
