Milwaukee, WI | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

-- Intern events

-- Ability to travel

-- Working at a fun, interesting client

-- Upper management being engaged in the interns experience and making themselves available for questions, etc


Downers

-- Being the only intern located out of my cities office and having to travel approx. 90 min to go to intern events at a different office


Advice to Potential Interns

This company provides a great opportunity to use technical and interpersonal skills in a unique and engaging way. It also gives you the ability to connect persoannly with clients and other comapny employees. It is a fast pace environment and you have the opportunity to work on many different projects in a variety of differnet fields.


Advice to Management

-- Split up the intern and new hire orientations. There was a lot of information that was not pertinate to the interns, such as health and retirement benefits.



-- If multiple projects are available in a particular area where there are multiple interns allow the interns to rank the jobs they find most interesting. Productivity will increase if the interns like what they are doing.

Abundant senior management visibility for intern owning large, important deliverables
Chicago, IL | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The right amount, quality, and time allocated to intern events. Fully owned key items in the workplan. Fair travel requirements. Flexible travel and accommodating per diems.


Downers

I would have liked to see better communication to the managers of the interns. They often didn't seem to know what was going on / what expectations were. This led to interns being forced to miss events, critical to the experience, since managers would not let them go.


Advice to Potential Interns

Accenture Management Consulting leaves a large wake. This is a double edged sword - it allows consultants to own the process from strategy to the hand-off to implementation, but it also means it is not pure-play strategy work and may not be as high-level as other firms.


Advice to Management

One area that seems to have a wide variety of experience is the buddies. Some have great buddies - to the extent that they would take an offer not to disappoint them. Others are not viewed as valuable at all. Similarly, my buddy knew about my offer before I did, which makes me less likely to view them as a unbiased channel since they're clearly part of communication going on.
