Between the age of 36 and 65.



This is a topic I'm really interested in. I'm 34, just made L5, thinking about some sort of FIRE (like go with for a non profit) by age 45. Maybe have one kid. No idea how feasible this is.

Out of curiosity, what is the average ant of years it takes to get to MD if starting from L11?

3 years as M is probably average. Why rush, it is arguably the best role at Accenture as all you have to do is (a) focus on one client and (b) one topic.. If you like the client and the topic, it’s hard not to love the role.

SM to MD is more tricky. You need a solid two year track record, which translates to roughly 3 years at level. Affordability and being aligned to the right MDs important. So, say about 4 years.

There isn’t a mandatory retirement age like at other firms. You could FIRE if you didn’t have lifestyle creep, contributed to VEIP at max, and got good comp admin outcomes.

TTC for ~8 months, 1 MC at 6 weeks in Sept 2021. Since then my period cycles have been super long like 50-60 days (or I'm skipping a period?) and I'm currently on day 34 of my cycle. Negative pregancy tests and no symptoms. Nervous I'll have another several weeks of hoping and testing until my period finally comes, which is what happened the pervious times. So frustrating. Has anyone experienced this?
