Pros and cons of: PwC’s P&O vs. Accenture’s T&O

Worked in both practices. Overall very similar cultures - many people at PwC have worked at ACN and vice versa. Since PwC is private, we have a lot more perks (like getting a corporate phone, booking business class tickets at M+ if you fly 75k/year, etc..). Both are historically industry driven and both have moved away from that recently. ACN has a regional model, which I feel really limits opportunities. Bonuses at PwC are significantly higher if you are a high performer but the cohort model can limit base comp. I found ACN’s base pay to be fairly in line with PwC’s but heard they are working to be more competitive. Total comp at PwC tends to be higher based on my 5+ years working at both. I do miss the employee stock program at ACN though. Can be quite lucrative


I really like our leadership

PwC 1 y’all hiring

Yes, but only in pockets - we are going through a reorganization right now so it’s pretty need based. Things may open up a bit in the fall depending on demand

Hi fishes,
I interviewed with
Siemens Energy for SAP ABAP position on 21st Jan. The interview went on for about an hour and in the end, the interviewer asked my expected ctc and wanted assurance if I won't negotiate on Siemens offer with some other company as i am currently serving notice period and join Siemens if provided an offer.
Till now , the HR team has not reached out to me for salary discussions and my LWD is 7th Feb. Can i expect a call or i got rejected ?Siemens

How do you negotiate when you go through a 3rd party recruiter?

I just got an offer from Magna, one of their locations in Michigan. Base is $95k and 10% bonus. Although it's higher than my current salary ($74k), this position is higher and I will be supervising 4 people as Assistant Financial Controller. I went through a third party recruiter and I don't have much experience working with them. The company is sending all correspondence through the recruiter so how do I negotiate?

Hello Friends

I am looking for someone in the C-level or at a very high position in the marketing, tech or HR/Talent space for a critique of some materials.

Somewhat urgent and I would be eternally greatful.

Happy Holidays!


I saw a posting at Deloitte that says range is $78-144k and that “at Deloitte it is not typical to be hired at or near the top of the range “; any idea on where they typically hire at for this role? I’d need to be at $125-130k and no idea if that’s reasonable.

Curious about what sort of projects are available in the OCM space at Deloitte. Ready to take on a new role soon and seeing whats out there.

Experience in tech implementations (Salesforce/Workday)
Also worked in automotive, wireless and finserv industries


Thoughts on Prosci or SHRM-SCP certification? Which would be considered more valuable or highly regarded? Currently focused on Change Management but have a HR background (industry experience / area of study in college).


Is the SPHR or PHR license necessary to pivot into human capital? I have a MBA from a Top 15 school. Any thoughts?

Hi All, I’m thinking about getting certified in change management but not sure if I should go the Prosci route or CCMP route. CCMP is a lot cheaper compared to Prosci but would it measure up just the same?

I guess it would be similar to the discussion of the SHRM-SCP vs SPHR.
