You should be considering a lot of things in your life for not immediately taking the 25k pay-raise.

Great point about jumping! Thanks

Just made the switch to Accenture from Deloitte, and unless you’re immediately up for promotion this FY at Deloitte you have to consider that you may not be promoted to the “Consultant” level (and salary adjusted) until 2023. Culture wise, I haven’t found the two firms to be that different. Both are big firms, lots of people, and “the need to take initiative over your own career”. Oracle practice definitely very large and well developed in both places. In my opinion, the benefits are slightly better at Accenture but it’s not a major factor, though I like that there’s an ESPP here lol. The major factor is probably how devoted you are to your existing network that you’ve built, but with 1.5 YOE you definitely have plenty of time to expand either way!

Title without the raise? You'll be expected to perform at the same level as other Consultant but with the knowledge you're being paid $25k less.

I can promise you they are not the top player. Both have good Oracle practices but not top.

Take the money, accelerate your career. You don’t owe Deloitte anything and they were happy to do layoffs at the beginning of the pandemic.

I’d take the jump if I were you. $90k is definitely underpaid for a consultant, but $115k is about average for newly promoted consultants at ACN. You may be able to negotiate a bit higher. FYI- New Consultants (2 YOE) from NYC/West Coast are getting $127k, MCOL are getting $112k. ACN just had annual promotions in October, so you would be due for a raise again this year. Talent discussions begin in the summer and raises/promotions go into effect Dec1. There is no Senior Consultant role at ACN, so your next promotion would be to Manager, which is typically 2 years after making Consultant. I would assume you won’t be able to make M in less than a year since you actually have few YOE than new ACN consultants.
