ACN Management Consulting - Advice!

Hi All,

I would really appreciate if you can give me a piece of advice.

I'm actually working at Accenture in the argentinian service center. I'm not enjoying my job very much, it's quite repetitive and really not challenging.

I've been strongly considering the possibility of moving to the consulting sector. I've had a meeting with the latin american management consulting Senior Manager and told me that although they would be hiring new employees all over the FY I would probably have to wait until March/April until the market is reactivated. It seems like during the summer there isn't to much consulting work in Latin America. The point is that now I don't have any evidences that then I would be able to have the opportunity to work there.

Should I wait until that time or should I start searching management consulting jobs in other firms? Is it worth to wait to have a position here in Accenture?

Your help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Ah, I'm 24 years old. I have a degree in Economics and I'm doing a Master in Energy.

Let's look at it from your point of view

1. There is no harm trying for other options - no matter how good a company, end of the day it's a business that's there to make money. The Ms, SMs and SEs are also there to make ends meet and make their targets. If things dont go well, they wont blink any eye when they tell you its time to go. So you need to take care of your own interests, no one else cares

2. Accenture isnt that bad and while it may be worth waiting, you dont know the end result. What if there is nothing better in a few months? What if there are some openings but you dont make the cut? Whatever the reason, I dont think you can afford to just assume you will get what you want and not try other options

Given that you are 24, assuming you have 2 or 3 years experience, I dont think working another couple of years at Accenture will do you any harm. That said, if you have already gained skills that will help you get a better role elsewhere and into something you want, then why wait?

The best option, IMHO, is to test the waters and see how successful you are. Unless you try, you wont if you already have everything you need to move on or realize you actually need to spend more time polishing your skills and make use of Accenture's network

All the best
