ACN job offer

 
#1 ACN job offer
21/01/2011 15:32

Angli4anin

I got a job offer at Accenture but it is for a position different from what I had been interviewed for. The position is an industry expert and it is at grade m1. I never worked for a consultancy (Well I spent 3 years in IBM 10 years ago) and worked in banking all my life. The proposed pay is less than I currently get but I am so bored at my job that I am ready to be flown to moon just to escape it.

Does anyone know what an industry expert does at Accenture? Also I am 42 yo an afraid that I will be too "old". Is my fear justified?

I also had an interview with kong for an advisory position and waiting for feedback.

Thanks

Does it matter whether you feel out of place? This is your life.

I suggest the following link for all those reactive people that care far too much about what others think.

anon to Angli4anin (#1)

Met a chap on a train about six months ago drinking red wine straight from the bottle. Got chatting and he told a story that was almost exactly like yours (except he’d been with Accenture a year by then). He was working his notice and moving to a new job.

His gripe was that he had been hired because of his experience (technical and working on client-side) and then had been sidelined because of his age and lack of consultancy experience. Had spent a year working for a series of late-twenty/early-thirty Managers who uniformly saw an "older" man as a threat or as deadwood.

KPMG, EY, Deloitte, etc would be a much better bet. Would not recommend Accenture for someone in your position. Too many baby-faced first time managers with no interpersonal skills.

Angli4anin to anon (#6)

Thanks.

That's exactly what I fear so there is a questionable reward for quite substantial risk

I'm still waiting for paperwork from ACN and, unfortunately, I didn't progress to the second round with KPMG and it increasingly looks I'll have to stay put for the time being...
