Demanding corporate tech
Engineer (Former Employee) –  TexasOctober 27, 2016
Work/life balance suffers as with most tech firms. Well over 40 hours per week is expected, regularly exceeding 60. Pay can be good as long as it's negotiated at the beginning of employment - pay advancement structure limits maximum pay based on starting salary. Health and wellness benefits package is on the upper end of competitive. Financial benefits are very good if you properly take advantage of them. PTO offering is excellent, but you may be hard pressed to actually take the time off due to demanding work loads and trim staffing. Maternity AND paternity leave is world-class.
Pros
PTO, benefits
Cons
Work/life balance, high stress, long hours, pay advancement limits

Unusual culture
App Developer or Technical Support Analyst (Current Employee) –  Dayton, OHJuly 27, 2016
Accenture both promotes a good work-life balance and at the same time expects a tremendous amount of work that cannot be done in a normal 8 hour day, often for months at a time. The culture is very much geared toward Accenture born-and-raised managers and young consultant employees who are required to travel a lot. It is getting better regarding experienced hires, but the process has been slow. On one hand, there is a high commitment to quality, but on the other hand there is also sometimes a "look the other way" approach by management when quality issues are raised, especially when we have a tight schedule.

They do strongly support community involvement and volunteering, and they try to have periodic team fun or charity fund raising events.
Pros
great benefits; a lot of good people
Cons
poor performance evaluation system

Rough Management and Environment. Great benefits.
Senior Analyst (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCAugust 19, 2016
Cut throat. Management is basically the "good-ol' boys" club. No opportunity for advancement unless you put work before life. The phrase "Work comes before life" was actually said by my manager on a few occasions. Employees on my team were way over worked. Team needed to be 5 put ran with 3 for over a year as management failed to fill role. Understaffed teams will inevitably make mistakes and management would reprimand even though stress and toxicity was never addressed. All-around unethical behavior from management and quickly created a toxic environment. Not all was bad, the company benefits and co-workers are outstanding!
Pros
Benefits, Co-workers
Cons
Work/Life Balance. Management. Toxic Environment

A great company that fosters growth and leadership
System Developer Senior Analyst (Current Employee) –  Arlington, VAOctober 21, 2016
Opportunities to learn and grow seem limitless. Expect to be challenged, in a good way! Co-workers and management are helpful and supportive. Transparency and open lines of communication are apparent on all levels. The hardest part of the job would be maintaining work/life balance, however, this varies based on your position and the company has proven to be flexible. The most enjoyable part of the job is the overall learning and growth, from your daily work and interaction with colleagues and clients, to a host of training resources, you drive your career!

Their motto "great place to start your career" applies
Consultant - Systems Integration and Development (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXOctober 9, 2016
Consulting division of Accenture offers competitive salaries and benefits for top performers. Advancement is dependent on performance, your network/career track, and a little luck.
All other divisions like Federal, Health and Public Service, etc. are considered "low cost solutions". Expect lower compensation and more limited career/advancement.
Pros
Lots of experience possibilites
Cons
Bonus only for top performers...expect to work a lot of hours to make better than 2%

Good Compant, poor people management
Infrastructure Technology Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Arlington, VASeptember 2, 2016
Accenture is a great work place with good benefits and culture but it all depends on your supervisor and the individuals management style. I loved the company when I worked under my hiring manager but unfortunately he had to move on to another project. The manager who took over was simply a micro-manager and made the Job conditions horrible.
Pros
Great benefits, good culture
Cons
Poorly Trained Managers

ACS- Great Benefits, No upward growth
Senior Analyst (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJune 22, 2016
Accenture is a wonderful company to work for, or so I'm told. I have been there since they purchased the company I worked for almost five years ago. The healthcare benefits are some of the best you will find, and the work load is enough to keep the overtime hours coming. However, there is very little room for advancement, as the term Senior Analyst only goes to those who actually are performing a supervisor/management role, and then team lead goes to the actual manager of the team. There will be one manager for a whole department. This is not the way it should be, as senior analyst should be given to people that have been there for a certain time, such as three years and have a proven track record. Team leads should then be a supervisor and manager should be the person managing the team. This would open up a lot more advancement (well short term but why do that when you can keep paying people less than $20/hour.
Pros
Healthcare, office activities
Cons
no advancement

I was young and dumb & didn't take full advantage of this one
Client Financial Management (Former Employee) –  Florham Park, NJOctober 23, 2016
This is a great company overall. The company gave great benefits, allowed employees to work often from home on Fridays... Compensation was approx. 52k-54k 1st year out of college in 2010 - not sure what it is now. Room for advancement was there & work/life balance was great in my opinion.

I should have stayed at this company, but I was young & dumb - Truthfully - I didn't know what I had.

Great benefits, growing company, decent pay
Consultant/Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Chantilly, VAOctober 13, 2016
Accenture pays pretty well, they give you 5 weeks PTO and for maternity leave ladies get 16 weeks, no questions asked. Great roll on program that follows you your entire first year to get you acclimated to the environment. Focus on training and investing in employees, very diverse and fair. Lots of company events, such as Volunteer Day, Holiday Party, team level events, weight loss challenges, and an active online intranet community for collaboration and doc sharing.

Additionally, if you're on a Gov't contract, you are bonus eligible at most any level. Bonuses are typically around 4-6 K for the average employee and based on the award fee.
Pros
Culture, Pay and Benefits
Cons
Not a large presence in the Gov't sector, and for Commercial work it's 90% travel required for most positions.

A great company to work for with a friendly environment
System Developer Associate (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXOctober 24, 2016
Without a doubt this is a great company to work for. The management is great, the people you work with are a joy to be around, and the pay is pretty good. The company overall will do it best to help you out and invest in you as a valued employee. Although take to heart that this is a contract job and while you may be on a project for about a year, you might see the time when you are rolled off the project and possibly put onto a new one. Don't worry, because they'll do all they can to try put you onto a new project.
Pros
Great people, healthcare, environment, helpful management
Cons
Possible overtime, no true job security

Senior Analyst (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJuly 28, 2016
Accenture has excellent benefits, and a nice culture. Different areas of Accenture have different pay structures (Consulting, Operations, Technology, etc.), and Operations has the lowest. Moving up throughout the company is easy to do. Once you have a job within Accenture, it's much easier to find a better job. Senior management has been great, mid-level management is hit or miss. I've always enjoyed my work, and never been bored.

Application Development Analyst (Current Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNOctober 5, 2016
In the project we worked on a typical day would go normally with picking up the activities that had to be performed or any Business priority items with Lunch and tea Breaks.

Learnt Time Management, Better Communication, Better Team Building Skills.

Co workers were wonderful with knowledge sharing and tea time talks.

Hardest part was to manage Holiday time from October to December.

Enjoyable parts were outings and finding issues without any help.
Pros
Best People to Work with good core values.
Cons
Comparatively less compensation.

Hard place to work but a great experiance
Tech Solution Architect (Current Employee) –  Denver, COJuly 22, 2016
Accenture provides a great way to learn a variety of skills and exposure to a lot of bright and hard working people as team mates. Assigned to projects with duration of 6 weeks to 2 years at a time. The work will be very interesting and avantgard with a lot of industry thought leaders. Accenture customers are only the caliber of fortune 250 so expectations are extremely hi. Lots of travel VERY long hours and deadlines to meet. Management is hard driven, ego-centric and not overly personable. It is all about results and how can i get promoted.
Pros
Great SMART people, lots of travel, ability to advance, great access to traing
Cons
Extremely long hours, High pressure and stress to produce produce produce.
