Accenture Strategy 🐟: what’s the Big 4 equivalent of Senior Manager or Principal? I understand Accenture Strategy may have a few additional layers compared to Big 4?

Strategy skips a few levels so we have: Level 11: Analyst Level 9: Consultant (there is a Senior Consultant but that is just so MBA hires are on their own pay scale. They are still level 9) Level 7: Manager Level 6: Senior Manager Level 5: Principal Director Level 4: Managing Director Level 3 and below: Senior Managing Director. SM is when business development becomes an official part of your job and you are considered part of the leadership of your local practice.

I have heard from some that Principal Director is reserved for special cases and you can go from SM to MD. Is it true?

At B4, Senior Manager/Director is the highest level before PPMD. After SM/D, you can be a non equity partner which is MD, equity partner without CPA which is Principal and equity partner with CPA which is Partner. Before SM/D, there is usually Manager, SA/SC, Associate/Consultant. Pwc I think has an extra layer in between SM and PPMD I think. Deloitte has an extra level at the start called Analyst below A/C.

Thank you this helps a lot; so the Level 5 in Manager 1’s post is “Principal” and is a level between a Big4 SM and PPMD?

Currently an A3 in audit. My team communicated to me that they’re pushing for me to get mid-year promo (Jan 2022) but I’m also interested in leaving to another Big 4 for AAS as an S1. Current salary is $73.6k and am unsure of how much I should be going for to make the jump worth it. I know EY FAAS offered a friend $85k in my market but assuming I get mid year promo I’m not so sure the salary bump would be significant enough. How much room for negotiation is there with Big 4 experienced hires?

Working as an audit staff in big 4 shared service centre. It's been 2 years. I really don't like what I do there, also it seems I won't like what I'll be doing there even after becoming senior. Thinking of leaving and joining industry once ACCA qualified. (One more paper left). But people around me discourage that growth potential and earnings in industry are way less compared to public accounting. I know that too but I still want to leave. I'd like to stick to core accounting. Thoughts pls

Hi Today I received a call from the Accenture recruiter who had discussed my HR round and my profile was put on hold. She told me that at level 10 the maximum fixed salary can be 11.10 LPA and rest variable. 11.10 is fine or can they increase upto 13 LPA? I told her to proceed my profile although I am having offers from other organisation like PWC with 14 fixed, but I beleive Accenture is better in terms of work life balance and onsite opportunity.
