Hi 🐠! Would love your opinion - began the first 2 years of my career in consulting and then transitioned to industry for the last 3 years. Speaking to recruiter about a role for C or M at ACN

Strategy is up or out at Accenture so there are some considerations here. If you come in as a C4 you basically have one year to prove you are ready for M. Can be daunting if you don’t land the right cards and struggle that first year. If you come in at M and aren’t ready, you have two more years to catch up before really affecting you. Would either shoot for C3 or M1 if I were you. Personally, I would shoot for M and find good mentorship to help you when you get here. What practice within strategy would you be joining? Feel free to DM me if you don’t want to talk publicly

Think I can push for M if I wanted but bit nervous about stepping into that role and unsure if I know what it takes to succeed in it. Would it be wise for me to ask to come in at C and test the waters? Comp difference is about 20% Specifically interested in hearing from folks at ACN as I know titles at each firm are different.

Shoot for M, if you get through the process, and they offer M, go for it...it’ll take years to get promoted, and money on the table is better than down the line

What practice within Accenture?

Strategy. Have led teams in industry, but consulting is obviously different. Been out the game for a bit so want to make sure I come in and am not over my head but my network has been convincing me I am overthinking it and should be okay as the role of a senior consultant and Early manager are not *all* that different
