Being brought in as an SA at S& at $168k

Yeah ACN Strat M1 is 170k + 8% which I would start a year from now. S& SA1 is basically the same base but a higher bonus so higher total comp.

S& is only bringing in SA’s who are going to be manager in 6 months. What group is the offer in? I was told 80% CDD 20% Growth Strategy. Why do you say people are a pro? I think people at Accenture Strategy are more of a pro I.e. cooler/nicer/less uptight (could be wrong, just my experience).

S& exit opps and pay are both MUCH, MUCH better than Accenture Strat for sure.

Sure

Exit opps are similar (though S& has a slight advantage) , really depends on what you did at each firm and your personal growth story

168 is the base for a new hire MBA so you did lose a year of credit. Their performance is iffy and they still don’t fit well in PwC. I think everyone who started from my school is gone, and several due to lack of work.

To all the new teachers out there- the most important thing you can learn is classroom management. I’m working with someone who doesn’t quite get it. Often lessons devolve into chaos. It seems to be as long as the kids are enjoying it - then it’s ok. You also need to learn is to help out - to help set up, help pick up, help in whatever ways are needed. Don’t wait to be asked. Put down the freaking phone and pay attention! Finally, try to learn from your coworkers. You don’t know it all!
