ACN dilemma

 
#1 ACN dilemma
23/03/2008 13:40

Maverick

I am a MBA with 10 years of varied work experience.I have never worked in consulting before.Once I decided to get into this world I have managed get an offer from Accenture for a Transition Manager role within services workforce.I have accepted the offer.I have two issues I need help with:

1. Salary offered is £42,500 and a promise to review after six months as "I was a untested quantity for a consulting form".I understand this is a C1 salary for a M1 job.I am wondering if I go in and show that I am worth every penny is it realistic that in a couple of years I would be SM with a senior manager wage?

2. For someone in my position who has to do a little bit up of catching up to do what are the strategic steps I should take to ensure that I move up fairly quickly given that I am hardworking, qualified and driven.

Maverick,

It's definetly M1 job with C1 salary - I would not take it. Secondly, it's Services, i.e. lower pay and worse perception than consulting.

Regards

$0.02 to Maverick (#1)

the whole you making SM is slightly different in services, the key thing is what level are they bringing you in? level d, level c? generally level b is on par with senior consultant(C3)/M1 and a level a like an exp manager/SM. and to be frank, 42.5K is less than i made when i made C1, yeah services is less £ in principle, but i would ask for more. also the promotion in services is very different in that it is not necessarily linked to a time period. you pretty much try work out with your CC when you want to go up and try come up with a role/resp to match this. basically you can get promoted at anytime. so in theory yeah you can make it, but.... to get to the top in 2 years will be a hard slog.
