Join Accenture to help the world’s leading companies imagine the future and bring it to life.

Our innovation hubs provide destinations where Accenture people work side-by-side with their clients to ideate, rapidly prototype and launch transformative ideas. In these hubs – like the one in Houston, Texas – our clients have hands-on access to digital and emerging technologies that have the power to transform business (think artificial intelligence, blockchain, robotics, drones with computer vision and virtual reality).
Learn more about the innovation that awaits in our innovation hubs, which will expand to 10 locations in the U.S. by 2020.
We use our global capabilities and digital experience to address a wide range of societal issues—and improve the way the world works and lives. For example, we collaborated with Biogen to develop a first-of-its-kind molecular comparison application which has the potential to significantly speed up drug discovery and bring medicines to people faster. With Microsoft, we’re helping the United Nations provide digital legal identification for refugees who have no official documents, with a digital ID network that runs on blockchain technology and connects existing public and commercial records so people can access their personal details from any location.
Outside of client work, Accenture people love to give back and donate their time. They are passionate about improving the way the world works and lives. Last year, our employees spent approximately 240,000 hours volunteering through its global corporate citizenship initiative, Skills to Succeed, which helps transform lives by equipping people with the skills to get a job or start a business. Accenture is on track to equip 3M+ people worldwide with workplace and entrepreneurial skills by 2020.
The diversity of our people is part of what makes Accenture exceptional. We value the diversity of thought and experience that comes from across a broad spectrum of abilities, age, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and gender identity and expression. We believe it makes us smarter, more competitive and more innovative—and is a key part of what makes Accenture a great place to work.
We’re taking steps to increase progress toward a more diverse and inclusive workplace, for example, by releasing our U.S. workforce demographics and setting a new a new goal to achieve a gender-balanced workforce by 2025. And we encourage our employees to use their voice to help create a workplace where it’s possible to be successful, both personally and professionally. We invite you to join our #InclusionStartsWithI conversation.
At Accenture, we know that success for our people requires two things: the right skills and the right opportunities.
Constant learning is essential to building the right skills, which is why we make learning – from basic skills to industry-specific content—available to all our people. Last year, we spent more than $900 million on training and developing our people, with a focus on helping our people become more conversant in areas like cloud, digital and security.
We place enormous value on mentoring within the workplace, and each of our employees are a designated, more experienced person who provides career coaching and guidance to help them manage their careers and develop professionally. Our new approach to performance management includes real-time, forward-looking conversations about setting priorities, growing strengths and creating opportunities tailored to each individual—and eliminates the annual ranking.

Advice to Management
Keep focusing on people and retaining talent, this is what makes Accenture great!
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Accenture (Austin, TX).
A phone screen with a recruiter, then a technical interview, then a final interview with the director. All interviews felt relatively easy and were straightforward. Each interviewer was friendly and easy to talk to.
During the phone screen, the recruiter asks about your background, interests, skills, what you're looking for, etc. Talk about your experience with front-end frameworks and any production-level experience you have.
The final interview is a chance for you to ask questions and get to know the director and share more about yourself and why you're a good fit for the job. Standard interview questions here - strengths, weaknesses, challenges (technical and interpersonal), etc.
