Hi everyone,

Thinking about a career change from ad sales function as senior enterprise account manager / programmatic platforms specialist/strategist to

Would be great to chat with xgooglers who made similar career change.

Any pros / cons about companies profile / size? Common pitfalls on such career path?
Compensation side of such move?

Looking for Accenture info!
Interviewing at Accenture in two areas next week: Account Manager Creative and Brand Marketing and

The former sounds exactly like what I do now at an ad agency but on the in house agency team with Accenture being the “client”. Lots of execution work. The latter is more about answering RFPs for existing clients and developing some strategy and like 30% execution. I’m leaning toward the CEM role.
