Accenture Capability Groups

Hi,

I'm in the process of applying for a graduate position within Accenture. At my interview I was advised to apply for the London Delivery Centre in the Technology Capability Group as opposed to an Operating Group. This was due to my previous technical experience. Just wondering can I expect the same type of training within the LDC as a consultant in an OG would? Can anyone give an example of work i'd be involved in within the LDC? And are promotion prospects as good as consultants in an OG?

Any other info in the LDC or Accenture Capability Groups would be great!

Thanks.

First question you should ask them is whether they're advising you to apply to ATS or consulting at the LDC. The technology capability group at the LDC consist of people both from ATS (Accenture Technology Solutions, also known as SWF - Solutions Workforce) and from the consulting workforce. Even though both of these groups work at the LDC, the expected career paths, salaries and promotions are very different: ATS/SWF are a) programmers/developers rather than consultants b) doing mostly coding, testing etc c) will take much longer to get any supervisory responsibilities (if ever) and d) get paid less. Consulting workforce, on the other hand, will a) get paid more, b) get promoted quicker and c) even though originally they might be doing hands-on technical work, will get involved in functional/architecture/supervisory work relatively soon. And d) get to much more money for training (including those "compulsory" trips to St Charles :-). So be sure you know which one they're suggesting you should apply to. Consulting in T&O is not bad at all, but ATS is pretty far from what most people think when they think of consultancy...

When I looked trough Accentures Website I got the feeling that a System Analyst at ATS more or less do the same work as someone working with Solutions Engineering in Consulting. Is this right? Is it still the "downside" described by Ptr to work at ATS compared to work at Solutions Engineering or Technology Consulting?
