Hello all, this forum was a great find, it's exactly what I've been looking for!
Basically I have a final interview with Accenture in a week or so and if I take it I'll be moving from Atos Origin (SI division). I have about 4 years of Business analysis and Technical developing experience mainly in CRM. My practice isn't huge (<50 consultants) but since I'm one of the 'high fliers' I get my pay rise, bonus and promo pretty regularly.
I'm on £38k as a GCM4 which isn't amazing but they've promised me as part of my next pay review in March that they'll put me on £45k.
The accenture position would be part of the Consulting SI group as a Consultant C2 or C3 (or something like that). I'm assuming they'll offer me something similar around £45k to £50k so a couple of questions.
1. Is that salary expectation accurate? Should I push for more or is that right for about a C2.
2. What's the difference in their expectations of whatyou would need to do as a C1 vs C2 vs C3. Could anyone provide any simple examples to compare to my own experiences?
3. Generally what do people reckon about moving from an arguably tier 2 type consultancy where I'm a 'big fish' in a small pond to tier 1 huge org. Is it worth killing myself working all over again for another year or two just to develop a reputation that i already have where I am?
Thanking you in advance.
