I have been contracting at Accenture for a while and they have now expressed interest in bringing me on perm as a C2 / C3.
Firstly, what is the current salary brackets for these levels? Are they flexible? E.g. at the moment I am being paid a very high day rate and they'd save a lot of money bringing me on perm, would this help in negotiating over the salary bracket or at the higher end of it?
What are the chances of getting a sign on bonus and typically how much would this be?
My situation is, that I get on very well within the team, and there now seems to be a natural perm slot for me at a team lead level that it wouldn't be appropriate to give a contractor over a permie, I also hold very specific skillset that is quite hard to find at the moment and that Accenture are looking to develop in general. Therefore I feel that I am in a relatively strong bargaining position.
Any help from you experienced consultants would be appreciated.
