Hi everyone! In need of some advice…. I am a level 10 at Accenture making 82k. I’ve started out as a level 10 and I’m up for promotion for August. I’m not hopeful since I also recently transferred from AFS. I ended up getting a offer from a smaller consulting company called OnPrem for 115k as a senior consultant. They have a better insurance policy however, their 401k match is at 4.5% and have a unlimited PTO structure (more so PTO is at mercy of my manager). What should I do?

I’d take the job. Good pay jump and 401k match is pretty good

What group at Accenture are you in? That seems low for level 9

Also Accenture isn’t willing to match. And I think I’m just super comfortable at Accenture since I automated alot of tasks.

I’d stay. C1 salary bands are $112-$120 in dc and you will have 6% match and ESPP.

Get an offer for $130 or more then it will be worth moving.

Obviously calculus changes if you don’t get promoted. I have had success negotiating higher salary in the market even after I accepted the offer. Ask new place to give you $130k (but be prepared to walk if they say no)

Besides, unlimited PTO is a scam. I waited until I was promoted and left immediately, cashed out 200+ hours of PTO at my new salary. For me it was $15k/ 3 full paychecks. Unlimited PTO means you’ll cash out $0

I pushed twice for 130 and it was a no go. The recruiter did tell me that typically there are two raises that go on in July and December. They are typically 5% raises.

Currently in a niche area of indirect tax at EY and looking to get a broader accounting experience. I’ve been interviewing in industry but most places aren’t fond of taking me due to the niche experience. I have a small 10 person office that seems very interested and does interesting work. I’m scared of jumping to something so small. Similar pay and benefits as EY, and nearby (EY is far). What would y’all do? I can’t decide.
