Excellent place to begin a career

4.0 of 5 stars

June 2018 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Varied practice with many opportunities and excellent, talented people. Exit opportunities are excellent as the brand name is well respected and still recognized in many fields.

Downers

If you do not advocate for yourself, you can be sandboxed into an area you are disinterested in.

Advice to Candidates

Focus on networking in and grades. Internal referrals are taken seriously. Otherwise, apply for the right vertical that you are qualified for.

Employee Retention and Salary Problems

1.0 of 5 stars

June 2018 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Very few, Accenture seems to be shifting into a new company era and is leaving employees feeling vulnerable.

Downers

Toxic workplace, below average pay and benefits, extremely high turnover and struggling to attract good employees due to low starting salary.

Advice to Candidates

There has been a huge up swing in employee turnover that is clearly felt throughout the company at every single level and department. Accenture has not kept their salaries competitive and top employees are leaving for competitors on a daily basis. There seems to be zero action on Accenture’s behalf to address the issue.

Staggering Employee Turnover

1.0 of 5 stars

April 2018 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

None that come to mind, NONE at all here at Accenture

Downers

Low pay, low employee morale budgets, poor management, bad leadership and company direction.

Advice to Candidates

There has been a mass exodus of employees leaving the company due to lower than average pay and being overworked. Truly a company that has lost it’s direction.

Fantastic organisation! Numerous opportunities for growth!

5.0 of 5 stars

April 2018 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

- All the training you would want and more
- Salary is competitive, above market average
- Can grow fast and climb as fast as you can handle
- Huge company with opportunities to move around
- International and national projects

Downers

- Can get lost in the corporate machine if you dont keep your wits
- Restructure too often, but can be a pro or a con depending on how you are affected

Advice to Candidates

Don't get blinded by the "prestige" of the big 4. Pure financial consulting aside, take Accenture over the Big 4 any day. I would say Deloitte is the only one of the Big 4 they can compete on a level field across the board with Accenture.

Honestly MBB cant be topped for business strategy but IT strategy at Accenture comes close, and the brand is still growing.

The new technology based economy favours Accentures model considerably and they are a power house at any level.

Tides have changed

February 2018 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Stress, if you like that kinda stuff. They used to pay for team events quarterly before the budget cuts.

Downers

Extremely poor management that always has on foot out the door ready to leave. Two of my boss quit for better pay some place else in the course of four months

Advice to Candidates

Know that this is a “stepping stone” company. It’s hard to find someone that has worked here longer that 5 years. When seeking employment here know exactly what you want to do so they can place you properly

A great place to learn and a solid name brand

4.0 of 5 stars

January 2018 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

The exec team and management teams are world class and are able to point the company to new segments and sectors. Strategy and Digital aren't what Accenture would have been known for 10 years ago (it's nimble); Its talent pool is vast and in the highest performing bands (At the very top - Above), or most novel (new service offering development, R&D, Innovation etc.), the talent would be toe to toe with the McKinsey's Bains and BCGs (performance and credentials). The firm is more focused about dislodging incumbents, growing market share, and innovating than on maintaining its incumbent status; it may be less stuffy than a full-on strategy shop

Downers

Share Holder Value; 15% churn - you'll do well to find yourself a diversified and intact network; Cost of Living Increase based raises; Yes, it's not McKinsey, Bain or BCG in terms of prestige or alumni networks; If you're in Management Consulting and you're on a blended team, you'll need to toe the IS/IT line.

Advice to Candidates

Ensure you do your research and find a suitable service line or operating group alignment through informational interviews or otherwise (And prior to joining). Avoid letting Accenture HR reps or your career counselors do the job for you; they don't have the time or the incentive for this ask. It's best to stick around for 6+ months; even the most critical future boss/firm would give you a "survivor" stamp; Toot your own horn and reach out to people as you see fit / or as your interests dictate.

what it says on the tin

January 2018 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

very big consulting firm, lots of options, good network of colleagues

Downers

poor exit opportunities, work/life balance, pay below average for industry

Advice to Candidates

Make sure to excel in the group task as this is the most important stage of the process

Good for starters

3.0 of 5 stars

December 2017 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

International exposure to all the firms locations and offices
Fair amount of training at your disposal

Downers

Compensation below industry average
Not a lot of mobility between different scopes of projects

Advice to Candidates

Might be a good entrance into consulting, but if you’re certain to pursue a consulting career I’d suggest to apply directly for top tier firms

Highly political and no ethics

1.0 of 5 stars

December 2017 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

The company has a very fast paced vibe but does not pay you for this increased pace

Downers

Accenture has a highly competitive workplace. If you don’t “drink the kool-aid” and play into office politics you will never survive. Accenture crafts its employees to resemble brain washed robots all humming along to make a profit

Advice to Candidates

This company have very low ethical standards, a serious gender and race divide and it not the type of employer that a woman would want to work at. It is the quintessential all boys club.

Great experience of self-development and impact. Highly reccommend

I belive that the salary is not according. I believe they can stimulate and motivate better.

Advice to Candidates

If you want ot gain experience, it's the place for you!
