The old saying of garbage in and garbage out would sum up my work experience at Accenture. In the beginning everyone is helpful and then as you need operational help from management, nothing gets done. In summary, get surrounded by a good team that will hear and understand your needs as an employee.
Accenture is a metorious company so it is important that you aligned with real leaders who are part of the culture and not above it in order to have individual success. They so network but that is just words!

Good ole boy mentally that is overt!
Good: Local management is very hands-off.Bad: C-level suite has extremely pre-conceived political opinions that are communicated quite frequently. I simply think politics should be left out of corporate life.
Free lunches/breakfasts. free coffee all day
Accenture advocates for a great work life balance but does not have many opportunities for growth. Middle management doesn't focus on building team morale, team building or advancement. If you're looking for a place to grow, increase skills or certifications this is not it.
Accenture is a great company that has a lot of opportunities. There is a diverse set of job offerings, with just about every industry represented, including retail, energy and tech.
Accenture is a great company to work for. But the are some key thing to be aware of: 1. Advancement is about who you know and who knows you. 2. Very little diversity at the top ( speaking only to US market only) 3. If your part of the consulting group don't stay on the bench too long 4. Make friends with everyone that is the key to advancement and staying off the bench.
