Change Management Consultant (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 12, 2017
My experience with Andersen Consulting (now Accenture) was that if you had "bad news" about a project (issues that needed to be resolved), the partners did not want to hear about any issues. They only want to hear how you are meeting deadlines and "making the impossible happen" (regardless if that "impossible" was really what the client wanted or needed).
Whether you’re just beginning your career, making a career change or ready to take your career to the next level, we have a role for you at Accenture. We offer tight-knit teams and opportunities to build and hone your skills in each of the five areas of our business and the corporate functions that support them

I liked the group I worked with but you definitely needed to fit a certain stereotype...I went to a seminar once and all were dressed in the same blue suits and had the same look. Weird. They are now called Accenture.

Accenture as Andersen became after I left is a well regarded consulting firm. Their size and expertise allow them to implement projects few other firms can. It is a very fast paced environment that asks a lot of their employees.

Andersen/Accenture is one of the largest global services companies. They are world class in every aspect and truly take care of their people. They provide the best training to all their employees and consistently adapt to the changing needs of a billion dollar company in the consulting and software arena.
An amazing team environment and opportunity for promotion
Senior Consultant, Technology and e.Business (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – March 31, 2013
Now known as Accenture, Andersen Consulting was a great way to see a broad range of Business ventures in a short amount of time. With many engagements not exceeding six months you are able to see different businesses and work different processes thus driving personal exposure, knowledge and competency up.
Non-stop travel was the challenge for me especially once I started a family. Not very family friendly from that respect but that is the nature of the business. That was prime reason for my departure.
Would definitely consider returning though for the right conditions/ reasons.
diverse exposure, innovative approaches
travel and the occasional bad assignment with a struggling leader (i.e. out on an island)
Systems Engineer Consultant (Former Employee) – Irving, TX – February 20, 2013
Could make my own schedule. The job was very flexible. Learned high end technology Co-workers were back stabbers. Very stressful work environment due to this. Traveling was fun at first but than got hard on my body.

Everyday work is always on the go. Internal IT support plus providing external support is very exciting and has its challenges when trying to resolve and extinguish computer related issues.
There are new and different challenges in learning many aspects in a large company such as this one. There are many non-job related responsibilities that gets into the IT picture and most of the time it becomes part of your everyday tasks. However, it may become a challenge in juggling these things, but getting it accomplished has a personal reward in getting the job done and this becomes part of the ever increasing, learning field of the IT world.
Having a good and reliable team to work with has its challenges in regards to cooperation and successfully completing a task. But being a team player and having others that believe to have the same mind set results in the outcome being successful.
The hardest part of a job is not having enough or the right tools to get the job done.
What makes a job enjoyable is having a company of people who will have a proactive position to complete a job and having the satisfaction and the acknowledgment of a job well done.
