Good work life balance

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Accenture has made great progress overall as a company and that comes from great leadership skills and providing excellent customer relationship. I have worked on various projects for Accenture around Austin and the project you pick will largely determine whether you get growth/technological advancements or whether you get stuck and become stagnant. Some projects do offer great compensations and some are very restricted on budget and might not offer any great benefits.

Pros

Great work life balance, People care for each other, People help each other understand the business better, Employees strive to maintain great client relationship, Accenture offers great learning resources to build on your technical skills.

Cons

There might not be opportunities for growth on certain projects.

Do Not Go to Texas Medicaid

This project is horrible and disorganized. The management is terrible. The only people that have the opportunity to be promoted seems to have a personal relationship with management. Many people have gone to Human Resources and filed complaints and nothing has been done about the environment.

Pros

Accenture Corporate is a good company

Cons

The company is only good if you are on a good contract

Straight forward job, opportunity for growth

It has very beautiful offices. They care about the employee a lot. Work pace is reasonable, never stressful. Also the cafeteria is really good most of the time.

Ok place to work

They hire you to do something but you end up doing something else instead. Disorganized. High expectations with no clear goal. Will blame you for their lack of communication.

Pros

Free water, you can ghost

Good if it's your first job

I work for Accenture Flex at client's base, not real Accenture. I never feel that I belong to the client or Accenture. Pay if not great. The company try to make employees happy by small bonuses but it's never enough. People is leaving.

Cons

Low pay, almost no benefit if you're ACN flex.

Horrible

Cheating and lying are the nature of the business. No matter how hard you work and experience you have in the end they value liars and cheaters. Don’t expect getting promotion through hard work.

Pros

Free water

Cons

Shift biding, not valuing experience.

Great company for a start

Good to start here and obtain experience out of college. Managers and team leaders aren't always the quality you'd expect in this culture. Limited growth potential if you are at a client location. Team lead at my location was lacking in basic leadership skills. He often ran a very thin line between being completely incompetent and inappropriate.

Pros

Used to have free lunches, great benefits

Cons

lack of growth.

Great place to work, impossible to move up

The overall work is okay, the pay is decent but barely enough to get by in a bustling city. I would recommend taking any time off for yourself when you can, because it's super easy to get burnt out.

Pros

Free food in some offices based on the client

Cons

Pay is just okay for the area

Supportive management

The job will vary greatly depending on the company so the impression I got from Accenture was limited. I like that their HR and IT department is easy to contact and they treat you like a customer. Management is supportive, and you do feel cared about. If a contract ends for any reason they'll try their best to place you elsewhere.

Great starter job for experience, but don't count on getting paid your worth or advancing

Pay is not competitive, however if you need a starter job to put on your resume its not a bad starting point. The job security is nice, in my experience it takes a lot to get someone fired, however, you are unlikely to advance in your career within this company. Your experience will be entirely dependent on your management. I have experienced some of the best and some of the worst managers while at Accenture so it can be a toss up. Most people get hired with a referral, and the management can play favorites a lot.

Pros

Good insurance

Cons

No room for advancement

Great Place to Work if You Want to Work Hard and Advance

I really love Accenture. Great place to grow as a consultant no matter what level you are at. Learning iterative methodologies is great, and it helps to be among those practicing them!On the bad side - it is very siloed. You will be in a region typically and if you are not working in that region they will try to pull you back. Even if that means leaving a role you like for one that is not a good fit.

Pros

Plenty of PTO, supportive colleagues, excellent mentors

Cons

Clients can overwork you, you may get pulled off good assignments to meet some leaders numbers

Accenture truly cares about the well being of their employees. They are fair, honest and work with you.

I was extremely impressed with the level of trust they give their employees. Leadership was available when needed but there was no micromanaging. As long as you communicate they work with you to ensure you have a great work life balance. The project I was on was a bit emotionally draining but I felt supported every single day. There was plenty of opportunity for advancement.

Pros

Free meals, daily mental/screen breaks, diverse, great culture

Cons

No overtime

Good overall, but low pay for developers

The company is good, supportive, and inclusive. I would say that pay is lower than other companies for Developers and the promotion system needs some improvement, but that is something that they seem to be changing over time.

Long hours and little pay and recognition is zilch

Work till 12a or longer with little to no recognition of extra hours or hard work to meet deadline. I often did the work of 3 people but when deadlines were missed it was our fault.

Stressful, miscommunication, no opportunity to grow, really bad management

Pros

The job it’s easy

Cons

Too much micromanagement, miscommunication, not enough opportunities for growth

Great company

I've really enjoyed by time as a management consultant at Accenture. The work is challenging and the exposure to large clients is a major plus. You do have to be mindful of steering your own career path here, however.

Meaningful work experience and learning opportunities offered at an project entry-level position

Accenture offers great learning material and tech industry grooming through online resources, but you have to seek it out for yourself. No one really minds which grunt leads the grunt work, so as long as it gets done.if you're looking for mentorship this is not the place... I can't emphasize that enough. The experience of working at any corporate entry-level position is going to be whatever you make of it at the end of the day.

Pros

Client Roster, Resume Clout, Accesibility to self-learning material

Cons

Managers demonstrate poor leadership skills, seniority-based promotion standards, and other outdated level structures.

Great Environment, Good Benefits

Great experience from day one. Helpful team leads, great managers, and awesome coworkers. Fast pace, but always available for assistance when needed rather a team lead or a seasoned co-worker. Sometimes irrational expectations, coupled with a lack of communication between team lead and management. Overall great company and experience!!!!

Pros

Free meals, laid back environment, great benefits

Cons

Lack of communication from management. Sometimes heavy workloads.

Downhill

Worked here 8 years on 3 contracts. First one was good except we never got raises but work was fulfilling. Last two contracts/2 years were all about busy work with no direction or support. The entire company culture now reflects this way of life. Revolving door of entry level and basically a cutthroat game of stealing or swapping workforce back and forth between competitors. Pay is ok and benefits good.

Pros

Benefits

Cons

No purpose
