McK fish - just accepted an offer for a BA role (3 yoe) and feel like I may have lowballed myself? Salary is close to what I’m making now (and know comp growth is much higher so didn’t negotiate), but should I have asked for an Associate title given my yoe? Curious what the minimum yoe is for associate hires (or SBA, if that’s an official title)

If it makes you feel better, I also just accepted the BA role and I have 4 YOE across Accenture and Deloitte. I was told I needed 5 YOE or an MBA to come in at Associate

Thanks that’s reassuring

We don’t do SBA title anymore and you need a min of 5 YOE for ASC or an advanced degree. Comp is 100% not negotiable so don’t feel bad.

Yes - we use it internally but for immigration reasons beyond what I can even comprehend we stopped hiring with that title. The comp for an experienced professional BA is higher than a BA out of school though. This is in NA.

like

We don’t lowball, which doesn’t mean you will necessarily like the comp, but you can’t negotiate wrong and end up a wildly underpaid person here. I’ve been at B4 and M and it’s night and day on this stuff. Sometimes experienced hires come in at a higher salary because of their current comp, but it reverts to the mean over 2-3 years. None of the old internal raises suck/must jump to catch up nonsense at B4.

What company or role did you do 3 YOE in?

T2 (ATK/LEK/OW)

SBA is official title but if you’ve already signed, probably hard to go for it now.

It’s not 1Y or out. It’s likely just for internal signaling and diff comp band. But expectations are higher for SBAs than BAs. If you want the toolkit, fine to start as BA

I have 2.5 YOE and just signed for the SBA role. The SBA role has a two year up or out path, but with a possibility of a faster promo if you perform well.

That’s awesome!

uplifting

Someone in my group just jumped from Accenture as a senior analyst to Deloitte as a SC. I’m currently a C at Accenture but really tempted to make the jump and reach for SC or M. I know I’ll get paid more and do the same shit. Currently at 120k and I spoke to a SC at Deloitte that has the same position and they make 160k. I like the people here and the culture here though. But at the same time I want my next move to be out of consulting. Still worth it to make the move?
