    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Accenture full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Big company with a lot of resources;
    - The company location in Brazil / São Paulo is good: near the train station;
    - A lot of coworkers are verz nice! This makes things better!
    - If you were hired by the brand Vivere Brasil you would receive more money for extra work on weekends for example. I am not sure for a person that was hired purely by Accenture;

    Cons

    - I was hired by the company VIVEREBRASIL and it was acquired by Accenture; the good atmosphere from VIVEREBRASIL was completely turned down!

    - LOW salaries! Remember that! Accenture does not pay well! The opposite: very bad!

    - EXTREM BUREOUCRACY! There is a famous study regarding IBM: they took THREE MONTHS to send a box from one building to another one! In Accenture this is twice as worse! Think about absurds bureoucracy to approve buyings, projects , reimbursements, etc etc!

    - The managers do not care!. We saw people doing bad things (like screaming, fighting, offenses) and the managers did not care!

    - A LOT, A LOT of work hours! You are going to work a lot of hours and this must have a limit! The incredible thing is that there is a famous saying from them that you hear when you go home that is "WHAT IS THIS? ARE YOU UNMOTIVATED!"! They make you think guilty for working normal hours! An absurd culture!!! Work/Life balance is absolute necessary! Never forget that! A lot of people had health problems (psychological and physical) because of this culture!

    - The company technical is controlled by Indians (yes, directly from India!) and they are not the easiest persons to deal with;

    - POINTING FINGERS CULTURE: management likes to find someone guilty instead to discuss a problem!;

    - Arrogancy: the most common phrase you listen is "we will scalate that to the president!";

    - Promotions favors boot lickers/Brown nosers: yes, if you are a JERK/BOOT LICKER/BROWN NOSER you get a promotion! ABSURD!;

    - Accenture transforms you in a consultant robot: you learn that you must ONLY FIND THE PROBLEMS: you point the finger ans SOMEONE ELSE will solve the problem!

    - Security extrem paranoia: your notebook has SO MANY security vigilance software that the machine soffers from performance! Can you tell me WHY WOULD YOU NEED a software that controls the bult-in "Run As Admin" ? Unbelievable!. EVERYTHING is under surveilance, including every e-mail and your webcam!.

    Advice to Management

    - Managers: have more responsability and END the culture of JERK/BOOT LICKER/BROWN NOSER; promotions based on that ends the company morale!!

    - Pointing finger is BAD! That does NOT HELP WITH ANYTHING! People will simply hide! Stop doing that!
