    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Accenture (South San Francisco, CA) in April 2007.

    Interview

    Initial contact was made by a recruiter performing a phone screen. Phone interview with a Senior Engineer was scheduled for the following week. That person gave a recommendation for the level of position that I was a candidate for. In-person interview with another Senior Engineer was made one week later. Offer was made to me two business days after the in-person interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a common design pattern adopted by software engineers and explain the situations in which it is used.   Answer Question
    • Do you know what a completely normalized database structure is and why would you ever want to not normalize the database structure?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate an extra $1000 into my annual salary. With Accenture Technology Solutions, they follow a very strict pay scale for the level at which you are being offered a position. The pay range is around $10K for each level, for example, entry level Junior engineers are offered somewhere between $41K to $49999 depending on how well the interview went or the types of knowledge/experience you are bringing with you. ATS, typically pays much lower salaries than in an equivalent positions outside of consulting. Still, you should be able to negotiate a small increase from their initial offer by showing interest in the offer, but being hesitant to accept. Be cautious, many who are offered a position are willing to take a pay-cut in order to join ATS for the experience.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Accenture (Hyderabad (India)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Only 1 technical round, you can clear even if you keep practicing some standard set of questions in your domain.
    I felt personally the interview was not really good to judge people, it needs to be more difficult to clear. Because the more easy it is the more chances of wrong elements entering in.
