Channel Recruitment Manager in Ashburn, VA
on December 11, 2017
This is a great organization to work for if you are willing to put the time in. I was employed here on a contract to rebuild an enterprise channel partner organization.

Good: The pay, good benefits, don't work weekends. Bad: lack of communication, favoritism, horrible management. This company is horrible. You will only move forward if you're close friends to management. They say that mental and physical health is important but if you miss one day because you are really ill, you get disciplined. Management doesn't care if others do their jobs right, doesn't communicate anything to their employees, and they don't care about their employees. If you want to be paid decently but treated horribly, then this is the place for you!

I've been with Accenture for a few years now and have seen change for better and for worse. Benefits are better than average (but that's not surprising for a large corporation) including an adoption stipend and fertility coverage under the medical plans in the US. Within my group, WLB is hit or miss depending upon you project alignment to the point where I've worked 80+ hours or 30 hours in a week. Travel is minimal for my role, maybe 1-2 times annually. The best part is the people, though. Corny, I know, but true. I've made true friends here and have learned more than I thought I could from some incredible professionals. On that note, the bad...Compensation is lacking and there's zero transparency on salary ranges by level. I came in to the company on a lowball offer (silly me) and haven't yet achieved the wages of some of my peers despite positive annual reviews and consistent plus ones. Worse, there is still blatant gender wage disparity despite senior management's touting equality. Promotions only happen if the business has a need for your level and role which is disheartening to those of us who are consistent high performers but not sitting with the "right" group. Overall, I continue to stay with the company because I love my colleagues, but I'm not a lifer.
CFO Advisor for Accenture in Chicago

It’s a great company to work for, but everyone is ready to stab you in the back at a moments notice, and then the whole thing feels like a mirage. The people are lovely and you’ll like them, but it’s all a front. And their real business is outsourcing the jobs of America, a tune to 20B$ a year. Check your soul at the door
Consultant in Arlington, VA
on June 7, 2021
Depends on what project you are put on on, but the one I was on had high turnover with management that was incompetent and detached. It's difficult to change projects and management actually makes it difficult for you to leave the project.Had I been placed on another project, my experience may have been completely different, but unfortunately you are assigned to a project after you are hired instead of during the interview process, so you really don't have any idea what the job will be like.

I was asked about my qualifications and was told to give an example of when my leader helped a company. Other than that they really go based on how you are in conversation so be personable.
