Accenture is a place where you can learn a lot of things, but it is also a place that will at times demand you sacrifice your life outside of work. Lots of times this is due to poor management decisions, and often times management will not own up to it.
You can learn a lot
Lack of respect for personal time
Accenture is a massive company that does a lot of great work. With 500k employees globally, Accenture's talent pool is very mixed with good and bad. However, opportunities in Raleigh are limited to mostly government and healthcare work. The young and naive are put into positions that few would want, and experienced hires have limited opportunities for work outside of Raleigh-Durham. I would not recommend Accenture Raleigh unless you want to work in healthcare or state government projects. "Networking" is largely superficial and unrealistic with remote-only work. For a relationship-based company/role, it has been very challenging to build meaningful relationships since I have never met a co-worker in person.
top notch benefits
limited opportunities in Raleigh outside of healthcare or state government projects
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.

No two days are alike. You could be meeting with a client one day to discuss their next moves. And the next day you could be taking notes of an executive meeting. I learned that once you make it in a company like this your goal is to be chargeable 75 percent of the time. To do the work assigned to you and make sure you get feedback regarding your work. Take the good the bad and the improvement points and work to improve on them. Do more of the good so you become known for something and do less of the bad and make improvements in learning new skills. Management can be more specific in what they want you to do. Manage upwards and you should do fine.
Fair pay and good start out of college
Spent years there and was laid off at a moments notice without cause but rather a reference to performance. No "Career Counseling" or any reference to issues so couldn't resolve. Senior leadership poorly managed the personnel and vision with no understanding of how operations function. As a public company, clearly doesn't respect the value of the people in lower levels and their contributions. Out to transfer labor out of U.S. where it is cheap!
Developed network of people
No career path, laid off without notice
They are good in selling.....Work life balance has no meaning, they will talk about it but actions or culture will not reflect it at all..or even the expectations from management.....This place could be a good career starter or even a stepping stone...
Compensation and benefits, exposure to different types of businesses
Culture, No job security, a lot of dbag management, all they care about is their individual performance and will step over anyone for it
Management not good, Promotion not at all easy, No sense of belonging; Not employee friendly. Only benefit salary above industry standard
HR & Management way too unprofessional.This company trying to showcase as it performing very well and is hiring, but it is actually playing by showing the fake vacancy.Firing people saying because of under performance. This is not the truth. Firing started happening since new CEO was appointed, and target number is way higher than told in an interviewCounselors are also not supportive. In order to survive and go at higher level, one should be like a puppet. And it is not at all employee friendly. If you say No for any project, they wont listen and will make such a big issue and later, this is will be used in one's performance.Pathetic company to work for! y counselor never supported me and was judgmental about the above basis their college.
Management not good; Not employee friendly; No easy growth
The work was challenging and my colleagues were mostly good people, but the work felt meaningless and I never felt like our clients better off when we were done.
