I am a B School grad with about seven years of internal/external consulting experience across various industries. I was placed an offer by ACN for an M1 role at a base of 67K a few months back. I was told that this was tending towards the highest end of the M1 salary band.
1) Is this a good base to start with? I was earning in a different currency and a PPP comparison would put me at least 20K (on base) above this figure. Do most managers start at M1 level or is it a possibility to be brought in to the business at say an M2.... Also, what is the range of the M1 base?
2) I have been hearing a lot about potential payrises at ACN next month. Any guesses on what the new payscales would be. Although there is a thread about whether or not the new joinees' remuneration would be adjusted to the new structure, I personally doubt whether that would happen.
I still have about two months to join, should I start looking out again to probably leverage one offer with another..... Any thoughts on which firms are paying more than what I've been offered? Would I be breaking ACN's back by re-negotiating with a new offer, considering that I have already accepted their offer, or would they re-consider if I show them my BATNA.
3. How does the annual appraisal and payrise work. What is the typical and also the maximum payrise that happens year on year, considering movement within the same role (M1 to M2 to M3)?
4. How long does it usually take to move from M1 to a Senior Manager role, assuming good performance.
I find this forum extremely helpful for folks like me who are new entrants. Would appreciate any kind of inputs. Thanks ...
