Hey PWCers, what insights can you give me about the financial effectiveness group? (SA and manager salary, average work week, partners within the practice, types of projects, exit ops?)

What city (or comparable city if uncomfortable sharing the real one)? How many years as SA at K? This will all déterminé actual salary and cohort.

You're probably looking at about 110-120k. Chicago has some great partners and overall a great office. Work and stuff won't be any different than what you're used to and what you just described up there.

What is the financial effectiveness group? New to consulting and haven't heard that one yet

Arrow Icon

Chicago, just started second year as a SA. @Accenture 1: To my knowledge, the FE group works with various groups within the finance organization. Projects range from improving end to end processes, acting as the PMO on large scale finance related initiatives, assisting the internal M&A team during a divestiture, etc.

Thank you PWC 1, very helpful!

Just to be clear, that's assuming you're coming from a comparable practice and not audit or risk. Otherwise you may be considered as a first year senior and around $100k.

I am struggling with the fact that I have 13 years of HR experience in one capacity or another, along with a bachelors degree and my PHR designation yet companies say “I’m not qualified or they ghost me when I apply for HR openings. I am experienced in all aspects of HR. How are people with little to no experience coming right out of college obtaining higher level roles than I have currently? It makes my passion for the field just go away.

I always thought it was strange that agencies rarely let candidates know the client until they are towards the end of the process. My position has way more job security than others simply because I work for a CPG client. Those in the same role on other accounts (e.g. airlines, hotels, fitness) have been furloughed or even laid off just because of the nature of the industry their client is in. Do we think agencies will have to be more transparent and let candidates ultimately chose the client?

I interviewed for a finance director position this week with just the CFO. It went really well. They asked how I viewed the fact that I'm 32 and the controller is 30, to which I didn't ask a "good" answer because to me age doesn't matter; I had older people on my teams and it was never an issue. I suspect that the topic might pop up again during the 2nd interview with HR. How do I approach it? TYIA
