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.

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

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.

Uppers

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

Downers

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

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

Good for starters

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!

Untrustworthy Organization

1.0 of 5 stars

November 2017 | CURRENT EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Salary: Irrespective of your current, they always apply correction to bring you up to the market level.

Downers

Highly politically ridden organization
No respect irrespective of your level
Rusted system with no ethics
Big sharks always hungry to eat you

Advice to Candidates

This organization is no more what used to be.
Your manager, subordinated, colleagues are all ready with knifes the moment you are in.
Changeability is big issue and you need to struggle,beg,accept insults and humiliation to stay afloat for survival. There is no system to get the roles. No one is ready to even discuss.
There is no quality work - all you need is make presentation, color coding of ppt, create excel sheets and send mails, no matter what level you are in.
Your boss, manager will back stab you for changeability. They will ask you to put yourself in MDI while will take up your chargeability without letting you know.
Retaliation is a best part of culture - Open your mouth and you are PIPed. Bad rating and no variable pay. And there is no EXIT interview - Surprised? Don't be - they are all like hands and gloves.
If you have little respect for yourself - Do Not Join.

Over works and had to work a federal holiday

November 2017 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

There are not many uppers at Accenture you are basically signing up to be a work horse

Downers

The organization it all white male dominated and I’m finding it had to relate to my team because the diversity is so low

Advice to Candidates

Know that they over work you and have the slogan “sell us your 20’s” basically if you can make it past that you can get a promotion

Underutilized and overworked in basis stuff

Uppers

Zero that we have noticed this place is reallly falling apart

Downers

The company culture is terrible and has no diversity. The team can easily get group think because we all think the same way

Advice to Candidates

Please chose and organization that makes you feel good and make you feel like putting in a large chunk of your life
