Great company to contract for very friendly, organized work culture, and relaxing workplace. Skilled co-workers always looking to execute and complete tasks in a multi-team working environment -- actively sharing knowledge and strategically collaborating to achieve high quality results.A typical day was exciting, and energetically fueled with enticingly engaging challenges. I would certainly contract with them,again.
Inviting, friendly, knowledgeable
More free food.
Consulting work has its pros and cons based on the project you're working on and the duration. Does give you opportunity to pick up new skills and to work on different projects but you do sometimes need to have strong networking to make those connections.
Systems Analyst positions
Accenture doesn't concentrate that much with experience hires like me. They'll only put you in a bench without much explanation or guidance. They didn't inform me about the process here, and they didn't teach me how to use the system or websites they used.
The benefits are great
Experience hires might experience difficulties
Since Accenture is a very large employer, one's experience entirely depends on which project one is on and what sort of team one is working with. I've had both good and bad managers--the good ones provided great feedback, direction, and discussed long-term project plans and daily tasks with employees. I didn't see much opportunity for career growth and knowledge growth on the positions I was on, and the positions were not stable--I could be rolled off from one project after 7 months and be forced onto a new, unfamiliar one. Wait times "on the bench" between projects can be long for some people but short for others. Every employee is assigned a career counselor but the CC does not always have meaningful advice to impart. I am looking forward to leaving the employer and IT consulting field soon.
Accenture gives you a variety of opportunities to choose from. Being given the option to choose which project you want to work on and what technologies you would like to work with is great! It allows you to try different areas within your field which can really help you find your niche.
