Since 2010 I work for one of big system integrator companies as lead software engineer / integration architect (soa and so on).
Before my current job I had been working for EY for 5 years as senior software developer.
Now I'm togaf 9 certified and I'm going to have certification as ibm infrastructure system architect (hope in december of 2013).
I look at new career opportunities in one of consultancy firm.
I'd like to act as either Enterprise Architecture consultant or Integration Architect.
Probably some others activities connected with it strategy or it performance could be intresting for me.
I need a man who could give me an advice about suitable departmens / client service lines, appropriate grade for me.
1. Client Service lines / Departments
2. Appropriate grade in Big4, Accenture
3. Which other companies except Big4 and Accenture could be intresting for me
4. About Accenture...
4.1 Is it possible to have cross-department tasks and activities? What about moving from one department(practice) to another?
4.2 What about relocation policy? For example, If I don't have visa and work permit in EU/UK/US how easy to get a job either in Big4 or Accenture?
5 Who is stronger in EA practice?
