Isn’t accenture strategy pay set by level? I’m not sure you’ll be able to negotiate base, maybe bonus is flexible.

smart

That actually sounds very correct and on the high if not highest end of what they’ll give you. If you live in SF or Orange County they might go up to $145k, you can try to ask but I think you have a very fair deal, mine was $140k/$20k for LA (salaries are dependent on location)

This sounds about right. Newly promoted consultants from the previous level usually have 2-3 YOE making 126k. If they gave you 1 year at level they probably pegged you at the midpoint between C1 and C2. But you can probably try to push for more.

Always negotiate!
