Fortune Magazine Got it Wrong at Accenture

Management Consulting Senior Manager (Former Employee)

ProsWhile internally Accenture is facing problems, the best part of being in consulting at Accenture is that you don't spend a lot of time in the office and interacting with too many internal people. The specific point here is that you will meet and work with a variety of clients in a multitude of industries and work on myriad projects. The career development and resume builder that results is undeniable. When you leave Accenture, you've vaulted over others in terms of experience and breadth of knowledge so that a prospective employer can see that your value far outweighs that of any other potential candidate.

ConsAccenture has lost touch with all that it attempts to teach its clients. It is treating every employee as a fungible cog where each one is an identical replica of all the others. No longer is each person respected and valued for their own strengths and expertise nor do the majority of career counselors have any interest or skills in people development. People are pushed to work more than 60-70 hours a week on the project and then have additional internal responsibilities that can make the weekly work week exceed 80 hours on a regular basis. Vacation time is not respected; you are often asked (demanded) to pick up the phone and carry your laptop to handle project issues while on vacation.

Advice to Senior ManagementI believe that Sr. Leadership needs to come out of its "bubble" and get advise and insight from different vantage points and approaches. Other companies have found ways to get into the lives of every job..i.e. T-Mobile executives work in the stores during the holidays to experience the systems that its associates use, the store layout, customers, etc. This is real world information, not just information filtered by other partners selecting what information is delivered by whom or through surveys that people are fearful of completing or merely don't complete because the perception is that retribution is fierce, nothing really changes, and the way the calculcations on which the primary issues is determined is flawed.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
