It was a place with discipline and fun at the same time.
Associate Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  INNovember 8, 2015
Normally like every sitting job it is a 9 hrs job where you have to come as per your shift and work the task provided. What one can learn here is being punctual and discipline and being productive oriented and giving more than their 100%. Accordingly the person was awarded as per his or her performance.

I was among one of the best team and team lead where co workers were more like brothers and sister and all of us worked us as a family and were more productive than any other team in our project. Accordingly we were awarded for the best team of the Year.
We were just given the deadline of the work and were not interfered in our way of doing work. And in response we provided the quality work on or before time.
Their were regular safety drills that were entertaining, apart from this we had a recreation room and gymnasium to refresh our mind and be healthy.
Hardest part of the job was when some one was leaving the team and because each person is equally important in the team losing a single person is a big loss.
Most enjoyable parts are the team lunches and project parties where each of us were just fun packages and there was no one as manager or team lead, all were friends and all used to play as one.
Pros
Team lunches, Project parties, Fun Friday, etc

Great Job Culture and Highly Process Oriented
Team Leader (Current Employee) –  Wilmington, DENovember 7, 2015
A typical day at work includes completion of assigned deliverables in designated time frame. I learnt various new aspect of technology and it helped me greatly to improve my skill set.
Management in Accenture is one of the best in the industry, Processes for employee have made this company a great place to work.
One of the hardest part of the job in recent days was resource crunch in my skill set which enable more workload.
One of the most enjoyable part of the job was network and learning through out the work.
Pros
work environment
Cons
Shortage of quality work

Great Experience
Senior Manager, Energy and Natural Resources (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCNovember 6, 2015
The experience you are exposed to at Accenture is hard to find anywhere else. You will be working side by side with folks who have graduated from the top of their college classes. Others will be experts in their fields. You will have the ability to influence industries and technology by your creativity, drive and common sense. If you are lucky to be on innovative projects and trusted to manage large engagements you will have had the opportunity to have more exposure and real life experience than most people with MBA's.

I would recommend that if you are driven, curious, can work under demanding pressure and want to make a difference while working along other like minded people than try to get a position at Accenture. It will be one of the toughest, anxiety creating, stressful working experiences you will come across. But if you are able to persevere you will come out of it as a knowledgeable, attractive candidate for many other opportunities further down the road of your career.
Pros
Smart People, Will learn alot, Opportunity to work with innovative companies, May feel good about your work after it is completed
Cons
Work Life Balance is poor, highly competitive, little forgiveness in making mistakes, long hours

I would recommend working with ACN to anyone as long as you understand the utilization is the absolute be-all/ end-all. You're utilization is good you're golden if it's not you're out and no one cares or will help.
However while you are there you can get a wide breath of experience and awesome training which make it worth all the effort.
Pros
Great experience good environment
Cons
ZERO support and total focus on utilization

Great People
Senior Manager (Current Employee) –  Arlington, VANovember 3, 2015
The people at Accenture are the best asset! However, this is sometimes lost on the Senior Executives making financial decisions. Accenture is a terrific place to start your career, and if you can dedicate your entire day to clients, it can also be a great place to continue your career.

Intense and Highly competitive Job
Senior Consulting Analyst (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CANovember 2, 2015
Very cutthroat. Also, very little control over your career trajectory unless you come in as a skilled worker. Very little concern for employee's well-being.

Only good for lifers and college grads
Manager (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WANovember 1, 2015
If you are mid- to senior- career this is not the place to go. Place is run by blow hard Managing Directors who are incapable of speaking without jargon and buzzwords. A religious zealotry aimed at PowerPoint decks. Decisions roll down hill and anyone who questions them is deemed a bad apple. I was a Manager and was basically treated like garbage by Sr. Managers and Managing Directors. Was actually told not to ask questions to a certain MD because he didn't like not having answers directly at his finger tips. Only good for people who have worked here their entire lives or are fresh out of college and want to cut their teeth in a Big 4 environment. Warning if you are out of college you will be the PowerPoint/Excel stooge for the team
Pros
Resume experience
Cons
Poor benefits, nonsensical management, terrible projects, inability to deliver

Accenture India has politics
Senior Analyst (Former Employee) –  New York, NYOctober 26, 2015
It's a big company and had a lot of politics but as a woman working in technology, it was tough to work through the politics. We were always disregarded. Not considered for better roles. No freedom to choose projects.

Good consulting experience, lacking in ample compensation
Management Consultant (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAOctober 26, 2015
People are friendly and motivated. Company provides good options for variety of projects, skillsets, and opportunities for advancement. They put a priority on making sure employees have good benefits. Does not match other similar companies compensation-wise and does not put a priority on work/life balance.
