Accenture is a consulting service company. They excel at software integration. They are an excellent place to work for those who are looking to expand their current talents or to find a possible new skill they an work into and gain experience. They are a professional consulting business that cares a great deal about their people, Every day there are new challenges and opportunities. The hardest part of my role was to find the appropriate skills sets for the Agile teams we often assembled for client facing work. What was most rewarding was executing and completing successful client projects and seeing the team members excel in their own careers.

I was a manager at a company that was bought by AFS. We managers we treated as second class citizens since we had not gone through the full AFS program and did not have benefit of the good old boy network. Many of have left or been laid off since opportunities are more limited. It's great place to start your career...
Delivery Manager positions
Provides an equal opportunity for employees to excel in their career. Focuses on employee growth and prospects. Great perks.Very customer-focused - driving value to clients.
While consulting and delivery management can be exhausting at times, this is much in the same as any other organization. The positives are that you are working with EXCELLENT colleagues, who are very skilled in their field of expertise. The exposure to large Fortune 500 clients doesn't hurt, and if you can build a great network and be a high performer, the limits may very well be endless.
500k employees - you'd think they'd have all their ducks in a row (or not) but the inertia of a massive corporation really starts to show when you see how the back end is cobbled together. Accenture will innovate for a client, but for themselves this is not so much a priority. (mis)Use of Microsoft products definitely affects the work and shapes the inefficiency. Too many MS tools and platforms all very mediocre. The illusion of running is really falling forward and getting your legs out in front just in time, same thing. They aren't investing in internal IT like they should leading to high workload, combined with so much "process" that seems to serve a CYA culture. Despite so many people it's hard to find someone to talk to for projects and questions, it's endless SharePoint sites and pages. Management is weird, they rotate in managers form non-IT roles, others move on without being back-filled. Good pay but some definite red flags
Great projects involving team collaboration and exposure to new technologies. Budgets are tight so individuals end up over worked. Work life balance is really bad. Accenture shower you with money, but have disregard for work life balance, personal well being.
Continuous learning Opportunities to take up additional responsibilities Work-life balance Effective management to support collaborative and interactive team
Been with Accenture for over 10 years. Work is great as long as you have no aspirations for career growth. If you do then you have to deal with politics, favoritism and backroom deals unfortunately, as job performance and skills count for nothing especially at the higher levels.
