What is the associate Director position in Accenture? Is it similar to Senior manager? Also how does it compare to Avanade’s group manager role? Is it a step up?

Associate director is level 5 - one step above Senior Manager (level 6) and one step below MD (level 4). I don’t know enough about Avanade to talk about comparisons unfortunately

Group manager is pretty much SM

OP - some parts of the firm treat that role like an MD, others treat it like an overpriced SM. It boils down to things like: do you have a big delivery team / revenue that you manage and can drive renewals, do you own senior client / buyer relationships, do you originate sales, are you independently driving your Chargeability ? If yes to all the above you will be treated like an MD, if no to most you will be treated like an overpriced SM.

Thank you all for the responses. That helps! I believe Avanade does not have an associate director position. Do y’all know what the average time is to go from group manager to Director at Avanade?

Also read this is changing. Would appreciate recent thoughts. 🙏
