    Accenture Technology Labs- not too bad

    Research & Development Senior Analyst (Former Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsThis review reflects the Accenture Tech Labs and not the rest of the (inferior) firm. Labs is a playground of ideas where you get to create new ways to "innovate" industries. Each project is worthy of being it's own start-up (and they have the same low success rates too). The managers are very nice and the the people are some of the best coworkers you could ask for in an office setting (if you like young, diverse, down-to-earth people). The managers challenge you to go beyond your abilities in order to create something new and the sense of community here is amazing. It's a good stepping stone right after college since you're exposed to different industries and projects.

    ConsYou will almost never see your work ship anywhere as you only work on small scale demos that Accenture tries to sell for parts. Most of the entry level positions here require you to be an adept developer. The problem, is Accenture only pays you as if you're any old consultant. Why would you work here to be in the 70k range when a better company can easily offer you 100,00k+ AND you can actually see your work ship?

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your employees better. If you want skilled developers then you should be willing to pay the market rate.

    A great experience

    Intern (Former Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsThe people in my office were cheerful and friendly. Everyone was willing to help if I had a problem. It was also a pretty social office and we would all go out as a group to lunch or to an event on Friday.

    ConsThere was a lot of moving around in the office since there was a change in management.

    Good and Bad. Depends on the Supervisor. Leadership does not discuss with associates on issues with Supervisor etc.

    Program/Project Manager (Current Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsGlobal Brand, Competitive Pay, Good Career Options, Lot of Online & Classroom training.

    ConsNo Work/Life Balance, Core values only in name but not practiced in real life, Expectation to be present in office even if you do not have work since Consulting workforce people who are traveling from Monday to Thursday just hang out at client place to fill 40 hours.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLive the 6 Core values don't just preach, Follow 180-360 appraisal process, Discuss with resources for issues with Supervisor.
