Hi everyone, I have 5 yoe in start up operations no MBA and interviewing for a tech business analyst role at Accenture. I was asked my salary expectation and didn’t have a thought out answer tbh and blurted out base of 90 at least

Does anyone know if I was in the appropriate range, or if I lowballed myself? 😬☹️ I’d like to start thinking about how to turn that 1 number into a range in my next convo 🤞🏾. Thank you!

You gotta do your research on salaries ahead of time so you can have a ballpark range to operate in. Glassdoor and Payscale are your friend in this case.

Also, in terms of negotiation… NEVER call out the number you’re looking at first. Ask the recruiter/interviewer “what is the typical salary range for someone w/ my level of experience?” I’ve learned this the hard way in interviews b/c if you wind up getting the offer and you want more $$$ you may be stuck

Always ask for more than your expectation. Expect they will negotiate and bring it down.

Unaware of the role and how it’s specific levels work/sit at ACN, but 90k is around what a T1 city Sr Consulting Development Analyst makes.

What are you making now? I think it’s also fair to base your expected salary off your current base.

Thanks A1! My last salary was 75 but I was absolutely underpaid in the role so 90 is technically a 20% bump but I also want to make myself “whole” not sure how unreasonable that is.

C1 I know, I know I don’t even have a good reason for not doing it this time I just went by the salary ranged listed in the posting. I usually do but she got to the question first this go around and quite honestly I’m not confident enough to maneuver out of that smoothly yet - hopefully I’ll get there soon though lol. Thank you!

So ideally you would have revenue of $510k. If the staff takes less time partners make less money and if they take more time partners make more money while the staff keeps the same salary?

Y’all I think I may have been catfished. I went out with a BM a few times and during our first date I noticed he was much darker and his face was rounder than in his dating profile. There was nothing wrong with how he looked and he seemed nice so I ignored it. I forgot about it until I saw a pic that captures how he looks in person and compared the 2 versions. I’m now concerned it’s not the same person. I’m SHOOK and afraid something weird is going on. Has anyone experienced anything like this??
