Salary Advice: Accenture...new consultant?

 
#1 Salary Advice: Accenture...new consultant?

Hi there...

Just wondering if anyone could give any salary advice? I'm about to negotiate with Accenture as an experienced hire. I've got 4 years government work experience, plus masters from LSE, but no consulting experience? Any idea what I can expect to get paid??

Thanks :)

Hi, Make sure you do not give any references, when talking to ACN HR about salaries. It has to be your onw judgement. ACN is very much focusing on the potential, not the past. So do not think of LSE as benefit (just a must I would say). 4 years looks just like it could be c1-c2, but not sure about your industry (government) experience. If it is the main requirement, then consider you could claim more, if you are applying for something different, then it will be tough. For c1-c2 and etc. look other messages of that forum. Hope it will be helpful

Thanks Day! Just one point of clarification, what do you mean don't give any references?? And the position is in their government strategy....so I guess government experience is needed. Hence I'm thinking around £40,000.

I think he meant: don't tell them your current salary - that will only give them a reference point for further discussion, which might be lower than you had hoped for. Letting your experience speak for itself is probably good idea, though I think they might a bit suspicious if you refuse to name your current salary when asked. In any case, around £40k should be very reasonable. In fact, you might want to aim a bit higher and then let them argue you back down to £40k if needs be...

I do not know if still relevant. But I just had an interview last Monday, and saw their negative reaction, when I was saying, that my experience of salary is taken from dialogues like this, but not my own estimation. I wanted to say, make it sounding as your personal estimation, but surely be realistic. Do not be afraid of saying your amount, but of course suggest the dialogue and speak about how will you grow, rather than just saying the amount. If you are OK with your current salary, make it clear that it is the company, prospective and the projects you are looking for. If you are about to get a reasonable increase in salary, be sure not to say, "I was underpaid in my previous work last 4 years or so". Hope it was useful. Good luck:)

Hi,

I have just been offered a C3 role at Accenture in Government Practice (£54k base salary). I have a 1st class BA(Hons)degree and around 3-4 years IT experience (techy background but now PM). I was told in the interview that Accenture do not look at your current salary and more focus on where you would fit into their organisation. Few people will be offered less with the majority getting the same but generally more. I gained a 35% rise over current salary which I was not expecting!
