You are in command of your career and it is up to you to connect with Partners or Sr Managers to pursue a chosen path. The Accenture culture is global even for alumni. It is very unique that once you are in you are in for life and ex-collegued become friends for life.

The worst management, very poor HR representatives. The only way to growth is to go out an drink with your Lead. Thanks God I'm out of that Toxic environment. Santa Isabel PR.

9 hour day, with a 1-hour commute 1 way. Often take 1-2 hours of work home. Averaging 43-45 hours per week. It's been better, used to be closer to 60.

You can expect up to 5-6 months long interviewing/hiring process. Initial interview for me was in the end of Nov, technical interview was 2 months later (in beginning of Feb), and situational interview was in end of Feb. The last interview with the manager was scheduled for end of Mar. You can add some additional 3-4 weeks of background check. And another 2-3 weeks until you get the offer. So that makes 5-6 months! Slowest hiring process in the corporate world. My advise - don't deal with Accenture.

Hire only what you need. They tend to hire an over abundance of workers and place them on contract then cut them after a year or more, maybe shorter when demand is met. I never was cut til the end, thank Jesus! Still hated it though. The CEO is VERRRYY out of touch! He's in France. Smiles on every recorded video and webcast, and has no idea that the workers are so UN-happy! ACN is overrated guys. I'm not a disgruntled, bitter or hated employee. Left on my own terms. Just got tired of working long hours (w/o pay but you had too in order to meet your numbers), endless emails and pointless conference calls. Loved working at home tho. Its just that out of no where, you'll get a call from BC Forward or other your agency that hired you, OR your boss (ahead of BC Forwards call, if he likes you) to let you know your being cut. Esp. when you think all is going well. The woes of working at Accenture!
