Gather around the campfire kids and let's have some of xakvxa's famous drunken rants. I will begin by saying I have never worked for, nor intend to work for Accenture. Let's begin with a (rather biased) history lesson. Way back when Boyz II Men and Backstreet Boys were all the rage, Accenture was considered the place for hardcore systems integration work (what most people refer to now as "Technology Consulting"). The other 2 big players (IBM and Deloitte) weren't really considered top contenders. IBM was still making buckets of cash from their thinkpads and Deloitte was this confused child that didn't really know what it wanted to be when it grew up. Fast forward a few years: Enron happens, Deloitte is the only firm to not divest its consulting group (by sheer luck) and a few years later IBM decides to sell its thinkpads to Lenovo. What a world to be in. IBM and (more specifically) Deloitte really start to become contenders in the tech consulting space against the Big Bad Accenture, where high performance. Delivered. Fast forward a few more years (basically Drake is in and Dwayne Carter JR. is barely alive): Deloitte somehow puts together this massive professional services firm that can do everything under the sun (built on the backs of burnt out analysts and michael porter's dead body) and all of these people in India that may or may not have been former offshore employees now can offer integration work for wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy less than what Accenture and Deloitte can charge. IBM is now sort of the mid-life crisis Dad that doesn't know what it wants to do with its life. Back in B-School there is this concept of how companies should always specialize in what they're good at. Well Accenture did just that. They specialized in tech consulting and sort of fucked themselves. So where does CDO/CM/MC come into play? From a (mine) macro perspective this move is basically Accenture slowly trying to defend market share. Strategy is Accenture's way of pulling a Deloitte by doing an initial assessment and then tacking on some more implementation work (which is the real money maker). CDO is a solution that will attempt curtail the aggressiveness of the Indian plays from totally dominating the other part of the spectrum. This is also probably where the discrepancies in pay come into play. You can't compete with India if your overhead is too high. So essentially....Bain is going to get bought out by Accenture in 2037. Also IBM is going to eventually dominate the field.

Sure it does but actual Accenture employees had these threads a week ago when this stuff actually happened. Also anyone Manager or over at Accenture can pretty much figure out what others make easily.

Thoughts on returning to a prior firm? Bad idea? Or ok under the right circumstances? My main reasons for leaving were better salary and to live closer to family. I work quite a bit more now so I don’t see my family that often, and am always working when I do go visit. Also, interestingly, I received a significant raise at my last firm about a week before I gave notice. So they *were* willing to pay me more; it just happened too late.
