Accenture was a total joke!
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – August 3, 2018
This company is the old Andersen Consulting. It is a huge global company which sells its services to a company then slowly shifts its operations to India, Brazil, or some other country where wages are extremely low. This allows for maximum profit. The compensation and benefits are amazing, but you'll never have any free time to enjoy them. You will be expected to work 60 hours/week (probably on the road) and if you work really hard, you'll be given Accenture's greatest compliment, you'll be "meeting expectations." That rating comes with no annual increase, no bonus and no hope of advancement. The company likes to talk up their culture and uses terms like "Team Building," "Integrity," and "Stewardship." These are great as long as they don't stand in the way of the bottom line. In the last year of my employment, I worked 100-hour weeks, had no life whatsoever, was on-call 24/7. I was laid off when it was decided to move the day-to-day management of my account to someone in Bangalore, India.
