Any experience in Accenture tech consulting side? Do you like it, what was your work/life balance, comp in comparison to other similar companies/roles? Interviewing for consultant level and just trying to understand a bit more on how it works on a day to day, as I've never worked in consulting before!

Wlb is good. Not more than 8hrs average but ofcourse subjective to team and projects. Compared to other firms, pay is better than Big4s and less than MBBs. Wlb is arguably best among consulting firms. We generally don't do partial staffing but expect consultants to go above and beyond for practice level contributions like building assets, etc. Culture is cool and casual, not overprofessional like Big4/MBBs again but communication skills are must.

Another big difference that I missed is that there are no sales target even at M level, unlike few others like Deloitte.

M1 is absolute bang on. You only need to worry about your billablity and productivity. Anyways at Consultant level I guess not much of additional load or pressure will be there. Once you reach L7 or higher it starts to get deteriorate.

M1 - sounds great. Are you sure about the pay being higher than B4 though?

Yes. Accenture pays one level higher than Big4. ACN's M3 break into 6 figures TC whereas Big4 SM barely makes it. (Not considering their acquired strat houses like S&, Monitor or EYP when I say Big4)

So this might be a better place to post this and ask this question: Uncle D has announced explicitly that most people won’t get a pay raise & bonus this year except for those promoted and high performers.
