Phase One CG – Why Work For Us?

Phase One is now Accenture Federal Services (AFS), a wholly owned U.S. based subsidiary of Accenture.
“We are proud to be combining our skills and innovative approach with Accenture’s scale,” said Jerad Speigel, Phase One chief executive officer. “At Phase One, we embrace change and innovation, and we are excited to join forces with Accenture to help deliver the value of Software as a Service to US government agencies.”

Phase One Consulting Group is a full lifecycle, global IT solutions firm that seeks to radically change the way that IT and cyber are planned and deployed.

Clients need solutions that work without breaking the bank. Today's IT application and cyber security technologies have greatly changed the way that solutions can be developed and deployed. We specialize in the technologies that are putting the traditional solutions firms out of business.

“When other companies were just building diagrams, Phase One had a well thought out delivery approach with enterprise architecture. Our leadership has adapted to its new reality over time. I’ve been able to do things here I couldn’t do in much larger companies.” -Richie Stockholm, Lead Associate

"I clicked with my manager, Katherine, and I hit it off with Phase One's client. They said I would work on high level strategy, and do management consultant type work, and they followed through. I'm building a CIO shop with the government from scratch."

-Corey Chambliss, Associate

The client needs are the priority. At Phase One, the goal is to be the "people behind the people." Phase One wants to bring your ideas to life.


  • We focus on delivering valuable results for our customers. We understand that value is defined by our customers, not by us.  And the value we deliver is sustainable—it lasts.

  • We maintain a future orientation with the customer, anticipating their needs and seeking to meet those needs before being asked.


  • We are warm, welcoming, and respectful to all those we meet. We praise rather than insult; thank others rather than take credit ourselves; laugh with others rather than at them.

  • We respect and protect Phase One and are loyal to our colleagues.


  • We are honest.  We are true to our word and meet our commitments. We are willing to take a stand in the face of resistance or challenge from others for our beliefs.

  • We learn all the time. We are innovative and we love to fit things together in new ways.

Our culture is paramount to our success, balancing hard work and client dedication with social and team building activities. Phase One and its staff make a commitment to professional development, supporting each other in pursuit of careers goals and contributing to innovative and leading edge solutions.

"I love the passion and brilliance in our leadership at Phase One. Jerad is incredibly inspiring to work for. This company cares so much about its people, that our leadership is willing to rewrite the book for staff."

-Karen Turner, Senior Proposal Manager

"I really like the direction, and way my team plans projects. Terrianne planned a whole sprint for gathering requirements, and another for just fixing bugs. We can get our ducks in a row and start our development on time. It's a dream come true for me."

-Sachin Pareek, Salesforce Consultant




We care about the well-bring of our employees and their families. We believe our benefits should make a difference to you, to your job, and to the life you lead outside of work.

Phase One provides multiple plans and services for you to select the best fit for you and your family. Phase One's success depends on the contributions and commitment of its employees, and it is our mission to support you in your work here.

"I receive a lot of external training here. For the next month, I will be in PMP training, where I can learn how to do formalized management outside my day to day responsibilities. Phase One fosters that, and they're helping me with this credit. They not only grow your skillset, they grow your career."

-Naveen Bokhari, Solutions Project Manager

    I have been working at Phase One CG full-time


    I really enjoy working with my team - everyone is really smart and motivated.
    I have worked on a number of government clients, which keeps the job interesting.


    The government contracting environment can be risky, but so far I haven't had any problems being staffed on jobs.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Phase One CG (Washington, DC) in July 2016.


    Two telephone interviews of about 1 hour each. One was with the Project Manager and one with the Operations Director.
    The questions during the interview were relevant to the role and there were also a few challenging questions. Both interviewers were very knowledgeable and experienced. Overall it was a very positive experience. Glad I did some research about the company and prepared well.
