Fair review
Bus & Sys Integration Consultant (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJuly 18, 2018
This was one of the best companies that I have ever worked for. They were fair and very interested in making my career a success.
The company has a solid growth plan for those seeking a career that is constantly challenging and refreshing.

Promotes meritocracy with poor leadership management
Oracle CCB - Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  QueenslandJuly 17, 2018
Accenture promotes meritocracy on the highest level which involves very bad politics and poor management from the leadership. Based on my personal experience, employees with lower or entry level / mid-position are often not given the chance or worse stolen; to climb the career ladder.

Accenture Federal Services
DevOps Engineer (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCJuly 17, 2018
Too many hours required to satisfy the employer. Substandard equiptment, bad managers, and uncomfortable working conditions. No team events due to budget cuts and constant churn of new employees. Having to communicate with supervisors was extremely stressful with most managers getting upset when we are behind schedule. The best part of the job was going home every day.
Cons
Low pay, total benefits package extremely low

No respect shown to entry-level employees
Technical Support Specialist (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCJuly 17, 2018
As a hire right out of college I felt rushed into my current role and viewed purely as a resource that could be used. There has been zero formal training and no clear set goals set out by my manager. Most days I find myself lacking direction from management and then scolded for missing deadlines when I was informed of them just a few hours before the due date.
Cons
Poor communication, no training

Great place to work
Management Consultant (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 17, 2018
Great compensation and benefits and many advancement opportunities. Work/life balance can be very difficult for those wishing to be promoted. Long hour and extracurricular activities are necessary.

Work life balance
Manager (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCJuly 17, 2018
Due to the nature of the projects and lack of communication, often time time was not well utilized. However, due to the fact the clients required tight deadlines and budget, certain solotions were not properly implemented.

Good company with a strong culture for collaborative work
Senior Manager, Program and Project Management (Current Employee) –  Chantilly, VAJuly 16, 2018
Good company with a strong culture for collaborative work. Many opportunities for different experiences on projects in different markets. Leadership communication from all levels is frequent and quite good for a company this size.Overall a solid company to work for in the DC metro area; better than most of its competitors due to overall business focus, leadership engagement, and opportunities for personal/professional growth and the ability (and encouragement) to make your own path.

Business Analyst/Configuration Analyst (Current Employee) –  Chantilly, VAJuly 16, 2018
Accenture is a fun collaborative environment to work, with the opportunity to grow and build a good career and a future, there are good team leads that are always available to assist the resources with anything they need.

Management is uninspired
Corporate Functions (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCJuly 15, 2018
Management is not interested in fostering a team atmosphere. The vast majority of our team has left in the past 6 months because management has continually failed to encourage teamwork. Management continually pits one group against another and shames groups in meetings. The work itself is stressful with now clarity or expectations set by management.
-The environment is horrible
Cons
High turnover, burn and turn culture. Stay away

Disorganized!
Proposal Writer (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 15, 2018
This place is so disorganized! Way too much overtime, no work/life balance. Very top heavy with too many managers and not enough other support staff. This created a very stressful and fully loaded work schedule with demanding deadlines. Work force is tired and unfriendly. Turnover is insanely high and morale is bouncing off rock bottom.
Cons
Favoritism, stale workforce, burnout and stress

US Customs and Border Protection, eroding company values
Subcontract Administrator (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCJuly 13, 2018
Accenture Federal has recently taken on work with the US Customs and Border Protection agency to help recruit and hire new border patrol agents. This has dampened morale of immigrant employees and shows that the core culture and values of the company is changing. A large percentage of employees are immigrants themself ans I feel like management is showing they don’t care about workplace inclusion and diversity anymore.
Cons
Overworked, declining Culture and Values

Seen Better Days
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 13, 2018
I really liked Accenture in the beginning -- cool projects, awesome and smart people, work/life balance, etc. There was nothing bad to say about this place. As of late there have been many organizational changes and new leadership and high employee turnover in my department. People are asked to do way to much, no career growth, and morale is LOW.
Pros
Work from home
Cons
Leadership needs to become part of the solution and not part of the problem

Great job until you're laid off
CMS Developer (Former Employee) –  Irving, TXJuly 12, 2018
It was a good place to work with great benefits. But then the contract ended abruptly. That's when HR only paid lip service in helping you find work. I received very little guidance with no real concern about my future.
Pros
Benefits, stressless
Cons
No guidance or support when I got laid off

Associate Manager - SAP FICO (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 11, 2018
Accenture pampers its freshers, junior resources and abuses its senior skilled members. Middle level Management works on favoritism rather than meritocracy, sincerity and output from the individuals.

A Hard-working Career when time and effort is put forth
Test Engineering Associate Manager (Current Employee) –  Arlington, VAJuly 11, 2018
Accenture is a good company to start a career and learn many different skills. If you are in it for the money, Accenture is not the place to be. One will never be bored with their job and will wear many different hats. But their lies in the problem that sometimes what one wants to do they inadvertently learn and start doing what the project or lead/manager wants. Accenture always wants one to lead and manage. Unfortunately it’s always up or out. There is no path for an individual contributor.


Cons:
projects have their own culture, new vacation policy, hire too many fresh-out-of-college, consultants from accenture's commercial side lack the patience for their federal clients, federal projects are short term, provides below average salary increases and bonuses, promotions are not based on merit, work life balance varies depending on the project age demographics, networking events and team building are gear towards younger employees, short bench time, some projects lack diversity, no path for individual contributor
Pros
good health benefits, decent maternity/paternity leave, interesting roles
Cons
consulting culture, hire too young, short projects, strange promotion structure, low salary increase/bonus

a big mess
Consumer Loan Underwriter II (Former Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJuly 11, 2018
Accenture was always in some kind of transition and change. This may be overall a good company but this division I worked in was a hot mess. I was shifted around from team to team with a group of new employees.

Figure out what you like to do!
System Developer Senior Analyst (Current Employee) –  Arlington, VAJuly 11, 2018
Accenture gives you a variety of opportunities to choose from. Being given the option to choose which project you want to work on and what technologies you would like to work with is great! It allows you to try different areas within your field which can really help you find your niche.
