Lack of staff protections

Accenture is a consulting company, which means they have big contracts and have quotas to fill. It's like an army. You will be put where you are needed.Realigning your career is basically impossible at Accenture. At all levels of management, the incentive is to block good employees under them from moving. The loophole is to be useless, but not too useless that they fire you. The general feeling among all levels of staff therefore is one of being trapped. Now that bonuses have been removed, there is little incentive to perform. Salaries rise slower than industry standards, and don't if you do not excel.The employee attrition rate is extreme. Within a year, most of your colleagues will have left. There remains only managers and grads. Those who stay for too long find it extremely difficult to find new work. Hence, the title of this review.At the end of the day, the main reason people join a consulting company, is to be able to move around and experience different projects and roles. Accenture doesn’t offer this, pays worse, usually has worse roles, and expects you to do Accenture work on top of your client work. Join the client directly instead. Don’t wait until it’s too late and you’ve signed a non-compete clause.

Regret not leaving sooner

Now that bonuses have been removed, there is little incentive to perform. Salaries rise slower than industry standards, and don't if you do not excel.Equal pay for equal work is not a principal Accenture upholds.You are aligned to a program when you join, and some are arbitrarily paid more than others. For example, it is common for two people to be in the same role doing the same work, but for one to be paid 8% more due to having a luckier alignment. Shifting alignment wipes your career progression since you are deemed to not have contributed to your new area.The gender quotas are set extremely high, and other forms of virtue signalling are marketed hard. Compulsory voluntary service is also an Accenture staple.Training is on the job and is sink or swim.The employee attrition rate is extreme. Within a year, most of your colleagues will have left.

Productive and work file balance is good

Very productive and work file balance is good. Accenture trains people to enhance their skills in all aspects by conducting various workshops irrespective of the technology. Workplace culture is good. Management is really good.

Varied work, intelligent colleagues

I have had and taken advantage of many opportunities working in a variety of different roles, industries and locations. I was fortunate to have a supportive career counsellor and very switched on colleagues.

great place to start your career

I started off as an Accenture graduate and it is one of the most challenging times of my life. The culture there is quite strong and being a big organisation, you really need to be proactive in order to advance your career. The types of projects are mostly implementation work which can be quite mundane. The work/life balance at the company is not quite right, they do ask staff to work ridiculous amounts of overtime and that is the expectation there, so often there is little appreciation of this. However, there does remain a lot of perks, the contacts you meet are fantastic and you get exposure to a global network. You work with some of the smartest people in the industry and there are loads of networking opportunities available.

Pros

corporate lunches and drinks, smart people, global network

Cons

terrible hours, no work/life balance, do not necessary get the roles you want, promotion can be based on duration rather than merit

Variety of clients but long hours

This is a wonderful place to start off in the Consulting industry, you work on many different accounts, always learning new skills. However with all consulting work there is always going to be time when you will have to work late into the evenings or even weekends.

Pros

travel

Cons

long hours
