Kick Start Puzzle: Deloitte Senior Consultant or Contract with Investments

 
#1 Kick Start Puzzle: Deloitte Senior Consultant or Contract with Investments
25/06/2014 00:17

Hello everyone,

I consider myself lucky to have landed a senior consultant (technology) job with Deloitte in Dublin. The salary is little higher than the median. The benefits are standard. I have also managed to get a contract with an investment firm located in Galway. I was passively trying to get into contract for a number of years and moving out of permanent role/comfort zone was hard. Now it seems I have the contract soon. I know many of senior folks here have had similar situation and decision making had been tough. On one hand there is big brand and on the other hand there is lucrative net income and some flexibility for changing jobs and progress with various clients (hopefully). I am confused. Please suggest and guide.

Regards

As Deloitte perm is the known quantity, focus your DD on the investment business - look on linkedin for example and look at the tenure of the people there, do some research on their track record - is it a stable business? It would also depend on the duration of the project.

As for the commercial considerations, Cool will be the expert.

Might I ask how much previous experience you had prior to getting sc?

Currently trying to push for sc from consultant offer and be good to have a benchmark.

Thank you @marsday. I will do some research and look up how people have progressed with that investment firm. I was talking to my friend based in Dublin. The feedback so far suggests me to go with the contract option as the client has a good name, projects are challenging and exciting and the contracts seems to roll over. I am also inclined to go with the investment firm. However, I am disturbed with thoughts of opportunity cost of not joining Deloitte at this stage. Am I going to loose out on this big time? I think I will surely loose out the opportunity to work with "smart" looking consultants.

@basch32 I have a total of 11 years of experience. I think for SC, a few years of experience is required preferably from consultancy background.

In my current role I lead digital delivery projects with some role of people management. I was actually considered at one stage for the Senior Consultant/Manager role @Deloitte but then as it stands its deferred can be looked at a later stage of atleast 1+year of service.

IMHO you have right amount of experience to be considered for SC but then you have to sell your prior experience.

I am still wondering what will be my core duties as a SC (Technology Integration) with Deloitte. Will it be similar to duties of a contract worker - working from a client site, hands on working on technical project delivery tasks or there is much more than that? I have no clue and it only limited to my imagination. Are there any Deloitte folks around? Your views and comments are much appreciated.
