Great forum, I read some very interesting things here.
Seeing the opportunity to gain narrow knowledge and combining it with great soft skills and taking that from client to client I always considered a career in consulting - especially with a Big Four company.
As I didn't go to university this seemed impossible. But earlier this year I went through two interviews for a Sen Associate position for their HR transformation practice. The final interview for this position with a director is scheduled for the end of the month.
I'm working with a considerable big US tech company in Thames Valley at the moment, where I work on HR transformation and process improvement projects.
At this stage I'm convinced that PWC would be the right opportunity for me going forward. But I was hoping you could provide me with some advise on the salary bit.
Does anyone knows how much I could expect to be paid for a Sen Assoc position, as a experienced external hire in London? Also I wonder what their practice is when it comes to the salary part? Do they ask, do they negotiate or do they just make an offer?
Any advice would be really helpful!
Many thanks in advance!
