People around is always busy and enthusiasm, and you will always be found when you are willing to learn and take more responsibilities. Accenture is really a big company, and the management and culture is really great which driving the whole company moving forward globally.
Stressful and collaborative working environment with colleagues that have strong profession and analytical backgrounds. Business travel is requirement frequently. Don't be freak out by your project manager's fast-paced working style and his requirement of asking you to do so.
Collaborative working environment
Accenture provides a lot structure and framework training which helped me a lot in the future career. The best career life I had so far is working at Accenture. I got opportunities to work in a lot multinational projects and improved myself
Great learning place and experience gain
Slower career growth
Es una empresa para empezar, pero sus condiciones, unido a la escasa opción de promoción interna y el ambiente humano del proyecto en el que estoy me hace querer buscar lugares nuevo donde desarrollarme más satisfactoriamente a nivel personal y profesional.
Companies looking for consultancy service are usually confused with different voices from different information sources. And they don't know who should be trusted. So consultancy is process of building trust with your client. Accenture wins projects with trust rather than capability, and it asks much more that its worth. Accenture was a partnership company and later turned to be an operation company. But the current operation still maintain the partnership style. This compromises the whole operation. Bureaucracy everywhere Employees are leveled.
Accenture is a renowned consulting company and has very good management. It has mature company culture and most employees are talented, well-educated and well-behaved. It was a pleasant experience working in Accenture.

As an intern and part of the project management team, the first thing on a work day is to check project progress, have a overall understanding of the process, then report to the manager. Then usually need to do a PPT for consulting director, and they would use this to report to the client. The hardest part is to improve working efficiency. In an consulting company, problems and requirements occurs everyday, you need to address the problem as soon as possible to satisfy your client.
Creative thinking environment
Worked mainly on an application for Astra-Zeneca, a British-Swedish pharmaceutical company. A typical work day was usually around 10 hours. There was usually a lot of work to be done but the experience was truly educational and interesting.
Have worked for almost 10 years. We have re-organized 7 times now and there is a lack of clear vision and road map of our work and what we are working towards. We used to work on projects all the time, now we have been cut off so the PMO can staff everything. Good access to larger Fortune 500 clients but work tempo is high and meetings late at night are a must.
Telemuting, Strong virtual team working, vacation time
Entrenched midlevel managment, lack of vision in our department
The work is organized in a matrix fashion, which allow you to explore many different projects while developing your expertise. The people there are smart and polite.
