Great place to work
Proposal Development Associate Manager (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVApril 19, 2016
I had a great experience working at Accenture. The work life balance was the best in my career thus far and being able to work from home supported this. I was among the first people to start the PRC from the ground floor. Since it was a new operation, my experience in the company was probably a bit unique. There wasn't a lot of training for our positions. Along with supporting teams with proposal responses, we all contributed to creating the vast formal training that is now present. Co-workers were great and management was very professional.

Good place to start
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAApril 15, 2016
-Good co-workers but difficult to navigate the environment with little help from management. Often, you are on your own to figure things out.
-You must find assignments on your own and depending on the length of assignments, you may be searching for work every 3-7 months. Like being unemployed.
-teams can be very political and not always in-sync with your best interests,
Excellent salary and benefits
Pros
Excellent salary and benefits
Cons
You are on your own to find assignments. Like being unemployed every 3 to 7 months

Great Place to Work
Test Associate (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXApril 13, 2016
Accenture Federal Services is a great place to work. The atmosphere is great, the people are friendly. Only downside I see is poor compensation. I took at 37k pay cut from active duty Army for a job here because I needed a job. Only earn 12 days of PTO a year right now. No sick days accrued. They work a ton of federal holidays. If they increase their pay and PTO earned, this would be a phenomenal place to work.
Pros
Atmosphere, people
Cons
Pay, Leave accrual, clearances

Too easy going-not a professional atmosphere
Buyer/Expeditor (Current Employee) –  San Antonio, TXMay 28, 2016
Management is too relaxed and people come and go from the work with nothing being said about it. When employees sneeze loud or knock something over the section the workplace has a section "clap" session. The environment is great for those who wan little stress and is great if you want a place to work that is appropriate for grade school or younger workers
Pros
Decent benefits
Cons
Unprofessional

Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  Des Moines, IAApril 22, 2016
Accenture is a very diverse company with productive and dedicated workforce. Accenture has many project through out the wold and project to project is different.I was very intrigued and exited when i was give an opportunity to work for Accenture. I was fortunate to work with the best group of people on this project. Management was very involved in daily team activities and encouraged everyone to strive for perfection.With the complex system that we had i would say the hardest was to manage resources for all the work, we worked as a team and were able to complete all tasks on time. Once a month each team on the project had "team lunch" time where the whole team would go to lunch together and socialize.
Pros
Free Lunches, Bonuses
Cons
none

Oracle Database Administrator (Current Employee) –  Arlington, VAApril 20, 2016
This is a great company when you feel like your career needs a nice boost or you are just beginning your career. So far I have enjoyed working with almost everyone at this company, but when I say "work" I really mean it. If you join be prepared to work weekends on a regular basis. There is a tremendous amount of work to be done with this company so be prepared to hit the ground running, if not you will certainly sink.

Enterprise Consulting on a Grand scale
Manager/Consultant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 30, 2016
Accenture is the giant for giants. If it's big and complex, Accenture should be involved. This is accomplished by true collaboration. Not only is the project team willing, ready and able to help with any issue, the entire Accenture personnel and online resources are available. It is not uncommon for a VP or Director to take time out for a consultant to work through a delivery issue. Sending a question out to the Accenture network guarantees the correct answer. Building a personal and professional network is intrinsic to the Accenture culture.
Pros
Network of genius, Enterprise level Corporate exposure, great benefits
Cons
Expect to be away Monday - Thursday most of the time.

All around great place to work.
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 21, 2016
Accenture was an interesting place to work. You meet a variety of people due to the nature of Accenture and the way it works. While not working you get the opportunity to brush up on your own skills as well as partack in company activities which open up future career opportunities. All in all I would absolutely recommend Accenture if you're fortunate enough to be offered a position there.
Pros
Friendly and very friendly to newcommers
Cons
Not exactly the best place to work if you have a family as you'll be out of the area often

Change Management Lead /Learning (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMarch 21, 2016
Very professional firm. Great opportunity to apply skills learned in school. Great work can me done in training and development at this firm. Only drawback is the pipeline is often lacking for future work, however work projects due last for extended periods. When the staffing is driven by the finance. When the pipeline is empty and there is no job security.

Great Company Overall
Analyst/Sr. Executive Assistant (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMarch 1, 2016
There is no growth. If you are interested in another position you have to apply like everyone else does and compete with those outside of the company. There is no seniority. If you are looking for growth within a company you can look elsewhere because they do not have it. Management is not the best. My colleagues were wonderful! The best set of hardworking, accommodating, and down to earth people. They make you want to be a better person. The best part of the job was being able to get your hands in a lot of different projects and to see the success at the end made it all worthwhile.
Pros
Working from home

Good Company for New College Grads
Program / Project Management Specialist (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILFebruary 24, 2016
Work hours vary depending on your work load and you are not held to a strict 9 - 5 time frame.

Your co-workers are very knowledgeable and helpful when needed.

Hardest part of the job is the early morning and late night calls when you are working with teams that are outside of the US.
Pros
Work life balance is accomplished by utilizing a work from home schedule
Cons
Management favoritism when it comes to moving up in the company

It's getting better
ARDS (Current Employee) –  Berwyn, PAMay 26, 2016
The delivery teams are incredible. The management is outdated and slow to change. The people are great but no one is ever held accountable so problems seldom get addressed properly. Top leadership is more concerned with growth to realize the current infrastructure can't support growth. Mid leadership is mostly old Octagon people stuck in their old ways. Departments are very territorial and everyone insists on being involved in everything. Simple processes take days or weeks.
Change is inevitable as they wont last much longer without it. They preach about everyone being equal but it's not the case. So many people have left and management still doesn't realize that they are the reason. Typical corporate America.
Pros
People, time off (if you can use it)
Cons
Sr. Management, outdated processes, no accountability for legacy Octagon people.

The company is one of the best companies to work with. The work culture of the company makes it the best company. The work-personal life is always maintained. They also believe in the healthy body has a healthy mind and hence give a tracking device to track the health related activities.
Pros
Free Tacos on 1st Friday of every month. Fitbit to be healthy
