    Consulting Salary Comparison

    5m

    works at 

    Workday

    Trying to get a feel for salary expectations at somewhere like Accenture or Deloitte. Currently a Consulting Manager at Workday. Master of Arts in Organizational Management, 6 years experience Consulting, 1 year experience as a Consulting Manager. Prior to Consulting also 3 years of a leadership + 5 years non-leadership experience with different company. Total years in workforce = 15. What level might I qualify for at Deloitte or Accenture and what might Base+Bonus or Total Comp look like?

      Best cultural fit for me

      Mar. 7, 2022 - Senior Account Manager in Amsterdam
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Culture is not a tick in the box but the owners actually believe the company has no reason to exist with the core values of the company. The technology is extremely strong. The market is the actual core business of our customers, hence you are very relevant to these customers.

      Cons

      The operational processes are a bit lagging the company growth, but that is being worked on.

      Great company

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Very inclusive, diverse and caring. - Look to build ppl up, especially ICs. - Is willing to hear where they can improve and what they could do better.

      Cons

      - Is very much a "yes" person company. Success here is strongly based on your ability to say "no" through saying "yes" and swaying the conversation around. - To succeed here you must be a strong ppl person and one who can read a room.

      Good live balance

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The company provides a plenty amount of time for onboarding and training for new hirer. Also, the workflow is really manageable I have never worked more than my regular time.

      Cons

      For the application engineers what I consider a con is that the only work with a internal framework. If you don't mind about that, so there is no cons.
