Bounce. Teachers and cops make more than that in the NE.

Do you think this company cares about you? NO. Do what is best for you. Do not feel bad. 20k is very significant at your level.

There is no such thing as loyalty in our profession. Do you think PwC thought twice before cutting so many people in advisory with no notice?

75k for ACN is a joke. Our new analysts out of college are starting between 77k and 85k...

As long as it's signed and sealed and not some trick absolutely do it. You can always go back

If you leave now and go back, you'll be making significantly more than if you stayed.

I may be thinking like an idealistic baby boomer but isn't there room for loyalty in our profession? I mean I LOVE the idea of 75k, but then I'm already making more than I ever have. That said I don't think deserve a bump that massive (massive to me at least). Not saying that I wanna die with PwC, I've always wanted to work for MBB and imagined I'll either be leaving PwC for an MBA or an MBB so this is has caught me off guard. Also I've never heard of anyone jumping ship so soon have an undergrad. I guess I need more honest perspective (would love some MBB take on this as well).

Do it, OP. You can always go for an MBA or to MBB from ACN too. You meant ACN, right?

Yes, Accenture.

Interested to hear how people learn project management. I have done PRINCE2 exam and read PMP materials, but I find these are too textbook theory based.

I believe you can learn these things on the job, but I am keen to expedite this with some books or courses. Are there any resources that are particularly helpful?
