Accenture Employee Review

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.

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.
