Hello, I’m currently working as consultant (2YOE) ians I’m mainly staffed for SWE and IT Architecture projects. Now I got a nice offer from ACN as SWE. How is the career path at ACN for technical new hires? Start at level 10. Can I get up to Manager with technical background? I’m kind a scared to “ruin” my current career path with changing into full time SWE. Currently I got the opportunity to become team lead and I don’t know if I can get the same at ACN. Accenture
