Interview Details – Long arduous process, but glad to see they do this. I spent about a month in various trial discussions and meetings, and traveled to two offices. I cannot say that I was a normal hire at all. I specialize in healthcare and education compliance and so the job I was applying for was very very specialized, something I don't get to do in my current company. Overall i went through interviews, case studies, lunch meetings, client situation discussions, etc.

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Accenture.
Interview Details – Two phone screening interviews initially before proceeding to next step. Each phone interview was different. One interview was largely case study based and looked for transparency in thought process. The other was largely behavioral and looked for how I behaved in response to certain situations. In the case study interview, questions revolved around certain client situations and business challenges and looked for how I would respond to difficult questions and challenges from the client. In the other interview, the questions revolved around management challenges such as poorly performing staff on projects and how I handled those situations.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Accenture in October 2010.
Interview Details – The Accenture interview process is lengthy and detailed, but all the representatives of the company were up-front about it and I knew from the start that it would take about 4-6 weeks to complete (if all went well and I passed each round). I proceeded through a set of phone interviews -- first background, then technical, then consulting / managerial. The final interviews were face-to-face on-site -- detailed and difficult but not unreasonable or unfair.
I was impressed by the interview process. I liked the all the people I met, and everyone struck me as sound personally (nice people), sound technically and committed to the company and to doing good work. There were no "trick" questions -- they covered reasonable background from my resume, and extended to questions that someone with that background should reasonably know.
The best part of the interview process was not that Accenture got to know about me -- they did, or course -- but that I got a much better sense of Accenture. I came away with the sense that these were good, smart people who believed in what they were doing and worked hard. This was the right impression, and I appreciated and genuinely enjoyed everyone I met with the company.
Interview Question – The most unusual step was a writing question. I was asked to describe the technical architecture and design decisions for a web application, and to complete the write-up in an hour. View Answer
Negotiation Details – I received a good and fair offer, and the only negotiation was to determine the best start date.

Interview Details – It is a very extensive process which include 4-5 interviews. Typically they know what they are looking for and you will be able to tell fairly quickly if you don't fit the mold.

At this level it is much focused on you involvement directly with client executives and your specific contributions in previous positions.

Reason for Declining – Accenture vacillated on where and under which partner they wanted to place me. Some internal politics BS probably. I had received a lot of feedback about the politics of their offices... This highlighted that concern. I decided to continue in my current job.
