    "If you are in solutions (ATS), or thinking about joining solutions, then think twice before you do."

    Current Employee - Senior Analyst Programmer in Chicago, IL
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Looks good on your Resume
    Training, but it depends which workforce you are in
    Don't have to travel, if you dont want to if you are in "Solutions"
    Pay is below Average only for "Solution" Workforce

    Cons

    If you are in "ATS" or now it's called Solution then you'r career will go no where.

    Back in the days lot of people who were not even High School graduates, were put onto this workforce, but then ATS, now Solutions has raised this bar, so all Solution people are well qualified, but ATS Perception will never change.

    Work with a Manager from "Consulting" workforce, and see how he takes credit for every single thing you produce, if on a client project.

    Few people, running "Solution" workforce, will "NEVER" let you switch your workforce if you have marketable technical skills. Even though Accenture says you can switch your workforce, but if you are stuck in Solutions, then your only option is to quit Accenture.

    Again, per Accenture you can switch your workforce, but if you are Solutions workforce, and you have some marketable technical skills, then Solution workforce, will not let you switch. It's not going to happen. Forget it, and either stay as a second class, or leave.

    "Solutions" is a cheap workforce, but no will say that on your face. Only when you produce something valuable at a client side, is when you will see how people change on your face. You could realize this within first month of being hired, or some people realize this within 6 months.

    First two years, unless you know someone from inside, you will not be promoted, and believe it not, Solution workforce will also not give you a raise as they want to make sure that you will not leave. So, you will not get anything accept few 100 bucks for variable pay. (literally)

    No one will say all this to your on your face, you just have to be in it to understand it. Solutions is a cheap workforce, and this will never change. Even though are more qualified then Consultants, but since you are Solutions, no one will see past that.

    Advice to Management

    Give Solution People a chance, and have decency to give them credit for there work from of your bosses too. These people, specially new hires have degrees, and are more qualified then Consultants. They were not told during Interview process that they will get looked down at.
