Service Designer Interview

Service Designer
San Francisco, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Accenture.

Interview Details – Poor responses vie email when setting up interview. Awkwardness in conversations. Largely, I felt treated like a piece of meat. Overall, I'm sad that they have a culture that felt this toxic. I was hoping for a better environment.

Interview Question – "How do you deal with crazy co-workers."   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The money wasn't worth the poor work-life balance.

Systems Integration Analyst Interview

Systems Integration Analyst

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Accenture in April 2013.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Accenture in July 2011.

Interview Details – I exchanged emails with a recruiter who contacted me through LinkedIn, had a phone screen, two phone interviews, and then a round of in-person interviews at the San Francisco office. Overall it was the standard process for consulting interviews, including skill, behavioral and case study interviews.

Reason for Declining – Salary didn't meet expectation and specific opportunity sought was not guarenteed.

Analyst Interview

Analyst
San Francisco, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3+ months - interviewed at Accenture in May 2012.

Interview Details – 3 step interview process was long and covered completely over the phone (last interview via video)

Dealing with HR was awful as the point of contact was unable to answer detailed questions and did not have authority to make decisions. Multiple delays setting up touch points and clarifying details.

Upon hiring I suspect that the process was dragged out to push benefits (stock and 401K match) out through missing cycle windows.

Coming into this organization as an 'Experienced Hire' must be taken with a grain of salt as they are best set up to handle new hires fresh out of college from staffing and training perspective. Once integrated within the organization the new hires become competition that can make promotion more difficult as skills are based on project experiences not overall knowledge or previous skills.

Interview Question – What was your most complex task at your previous job?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Negotiation was not an option and I accepted average salary knowing the benefits and exposure of this position held value beyond salary.
