Accenture matched BCG pay bumps y’all - UG hires - $100k MBA hires - $175k Don’t sleep on Accenture for having relatively great WLB, amazing wealth creation (great 401k match and ESPP programs), and being well positioned from a tech/digital perspective which is easy to use to your advantage when it comes to exit ops.

Thank you!!

These comparisons are always tough. All's I can say is that personally, I've loved my time at Kearney. Interesting and impactful projects, great people. A few common distinctions: - LEK is the strongest of the bunch in pure LS work. Also strong in CDDs. They tend to travel less because of the volume of DDs as well - Accenture is the most credible in digital and tech. If that's your jive, ACN is a strong fit I'm assuming that this is ACN Strategy btw.

OP - I personally think you might not be able to join as an associate. PhD friends with multiple YOE joined as SBA (senior business analyst, pre-MBA rank). Joining as an associate without an MBA is still very hard at K if you don’t have credible and substantial prior experience in consulting. You should probably clarify that with your recruiter.

Never Accenture lol

like

Ha!!- so both you and the Accenture OP are associates and lighting up the thread regarding pay discussion? Jeez

Accenture has the highest entry level and MBA level pay. And the best WLB and exit to tech As someone who values WLB/Comp and exiting to tech I’d choose Accenture.

like

Look beyond base comp for this comparison. No chance Accenture has the same bonus levels as the other 3. Not to mention the profit share at Kearney and LEK Hours are a different story, but I’d optimize for fit, pay and type of work over that

like

Want to do CDD? LEK. Want to do ops? Kearney. Not sure what you want to do? EY-P. Pay is slightly better at LEK/Kearney; so if you know what you want to do, go there.

I am in Strategic Ops practice. Long hours because WFH environment and because of the nature of that type of work.

Kearney's US profit sharing plan is fantastic. We really should publicize it more. 10% of your gross pay amount (base + bonus) is contributed to your 401(k), on top of a 25% match of your own 401(k) contribution.

Best of luck MS, but honestly I'd suggest you buckle in and focus on securing an offer before jumping the gun and thinking about where you're going to end up.

Accenture! Is this one of those games where you select the word that doesn't fit in with the rest?

likefunny

Because Accenture is 90% tech strategy, the others are more aligned to transactions and operations.

Great culture here. Large diversity of projects and plenty of topline despite ops heritage.

Was bad , better now. Still not perfect

Kearney's hours are the worst among the firms listed.

My friends at EYP and LEK would beg to differ

Broad range of strategy projects with the end goal trying to exit into industry, with long hours not a big deterrent? I’d probably lean Kearney slightly over LEK/EYP
