@Lead Developer 1 what kind of asshole question is that? There's a million answers to that question and not one is your business. Do you know how to be a decent person?

@Lead Developer I fucked up by being a woman. And working at agencies that don't give 23 year olds director titles.

@OP I figured it was something like that. I just left an agency that only gave promotions to women who weren’t having families, and neglected people in other areas for YEARS.

Why does the (non-MBA) consulting hierarchy at Accenture seem to miss a step? Deloitte progression is A-C-SC-M, but Accenture is A-C-M. I believe managers at both make a similar salary. What gives?
