I'm about to join Accenture strategy in a technology role/practice within a fairly specific industry; however, there's good chance another team would like me to support some of their more pure 'strategy' engagements within the same industry. I met some of the team at industry events in the past year. How would it be looked at if one of my first projects was for a different team and different functional role?
A little background. I'm an experienced hire and have a technology background but am probably stronger suited for more of a strat role as I have a good amount of industry knowledge. I obviously don't want to burn any bridges but coming from another big firm I also know working billable hours on another team may help their P&L and not the team I'm 'assigned' to.
I also want to keep in my potential impacts to bonuses/promotion down the road. Any thoughts on how I can diplomatically handle this would be appreciated.
