I worked at Accenture full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Very informal environment, and there are no such issues which come with hierarchy. Seniors are very friendly and approachable. The work culture is open to flexi timing which makes it very easy for women who are taking care of families.

Cons

The 10 hour thing was a hindrance, which led to a lot of manipulation in the timesheets. Re-hire is not happening at all. I have been trying to return to Acc for the past one year, and have re-applied more than ten times. No reasons are also provided to me.

One more thing which I hear these days - New joinees when they hit the floor, when introduced to seniors of the team, they are asked what their Bands are, and not their name. This is a very bad practice and can lead a very degrading distinction among team members. This kinda culture MUST BE changed in the ALS CDC team.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ex employees, who want to come back to Acc should be given a second chance for sure. If not in the same role, they should be guided to take up other roles in the organization.

    Frustrating experience if you thought you were here to do business consulting in a mature and positive work environment

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Global company. Global roles especially if you are in GTIN

    2. Travel policies are good (atleast so far). But there has been an attempt to make a GTIN specific travel policy now to reduce costs. So for e.g. there maybe a case where there would be two employees on a project in the US, one from India and one from say Spain and the Indian guy would be paid lesser in terms of benefits. Clearly showing who the second class citizen is.

    3 There is an opportunity to work on a wide range of projects

    4. Accenture work environment is generally good and positive in most places across the globe except GTIN

    5. Good peer group

    6. Comp is good but make sure you understand differences .......GCMC vs SLOs and Industry groups vs Service lines

    Cons

    Not Management Consulting :- Be clear that if you were here for doing business strategy and management consulting kind of work then you will be dissappointed. Most of the work is more of transformation type. Senior Management cares about chargeability and therefor anything can pass off as a project. Senior Management likes people to work on long term projects (12 months +) which gives them assured chargeability but are mostly always tranformation, change management, business analysts, process design etc type of roles

    Leadership issues : - Senior leadership in some of the teams is pathetic. They are immature and not the kind you would expect in a consulting company. Leadership in some teams is uninspiring, dishonest, vindictive and non respectful. You are expected to be the yes man of senior managers if you would want things to happen for you

    Low employee motivation:- Work and leadership issues have resulted in very low motivation amoung the employees. For a while HR has not publically revealed satisfaction scores even though thats very much a norm in other parts of Accenture (satisfaction scores are collected through massive global surveys). Ask the HR to share employee satisfaction survey result of the team you are joining. And ask yourself if the extra money you are getting worth the frustrating work environment you may be getting yourself into

    Work culture not positive :-. Work culture in several parts of GTIN is very bad and are not in line with the global culture of Accenture. One needs to talk to friends and alumni they trust before joining a team. Work from home / flexibilty is frowned upon. Comments are passed on dressing sense, work timings, Gender insensitive etc

    Growth:- GTIN is also a 1500 member organization and career growth is slow. Where it is common to see people in other regions becoming a senior manager from a manager in 3 years the wait in GTIN is very long. Similarly situation for consultants and Analysts.

    Meritocracy is almost absent. Its about how much you would go to please your bosses

    Work Life balance lacking. Senior leadership insensitive to work life balance

    Limited travel and client work for managers and very less for Senior Managers in GTIN.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relook at leadership and seriously fire some of them
    Listen to employee issues around lack of motivation and satisfaction and address them

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO
