-the overall culture of the company

- the technology

-the global ties the company has

-the many locations and opportunities for travel


Downers

Commuting to Alexandria, V.A everyday.

I would have preferred to have a client within the actual city of Washington, D.C so that I would have been able to utilize the metro.


Advice to Potential Interns

-Networking is key: reach out to Accenture's recruiting and let your interests be known

-Hone in on a specific skill-set or ability you have

*expect detailed questions and be very mindful of your body language and overall appearance.


Advice to Management

In terms of internships and interns, I believe that all managers should look into having a rotation program implemented within their specific team or project to allow interns to rotate amongst the different teams/projects during their internship duration to learn as much as possible.

It's not about having the experience, it is about what you get to learn from it.
Philadelphia, PA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I met very smart and talented people. I was also able to develop some presentation decks that were shown to the client's executive board. Most importantly I greatly enjoyed the fact that I received so much help and feedback from many Accenture people to help me make the best out of the internship.


Downers

I mostly worked with Excel and Powerpoint applications during the internship given the nature of my role. It would have been great to have had the chance to work with other applications were I would have less knowledge of.


Advice to Potential Interns

Accenture believes that their biggest asset is their people, I have to agree with that all the way.


Sample Interview Questions

Tell me, based on real experiences, the process of how you could take a lot of information from a client and organize it in a way that could be easily interpreted by the client.
