Change in Bain titles

A friend of mine showed me an e-mail about title changes at Bain. Apparently, the following changes will apply to the generalist consulting pool:

  • Case Team Leader becomes Manager
  • Manager becomes Senior Manager
  • Principal becomes Associate Partner

This seems to be done to align with the rest of the industry. Other changes seem to apply to experts, support, etc.

Can anybody confirm this is global? Any additional view on non-generalists?

It's global - the email was sent to all offices. Specialist consultants (i.e. experienced hires recruited specifically for their expertise in X) will have the opportunity to become an 'Expert Partner.' We'll also start referring to our support teams as 'business functions' where leaders can be VPs and EVPs. One thing to note, the email stressed this is a change in title only. No change in responsibility or pay or progression timeline whatsoever.
