I left to go to abother consulting firm that said they are like ACN. I regret my decision to this day. ACN work you to the bone but the experience you gain in a short amount of time will take you to the next level.

Oddly enough there was no work for a highly experienced iOS developer. I was there for three years and in the last year I was on the bench (i.e. no client work) for well over 15 weeks. I was told my bill rate was too high and most clients do not want travelers (I'm in Phoenix). My sense is that companies nowadays know they don't have to hire expensive firms like Accenture in order to get a mobile app developed.
