Senior Manager, Energy and Natural Resources (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – November 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.
Smart People, Will learn alot, Opportunity to work with innovative companies, May feel good about your work after it is completed
Work Life Balance is poor, highly competitive, little forgiveness in making mistakes, long hours
