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

Pros

Dynamic company with high goals. They have been growing very rapidly since 2010. They have collected an impressive list of successes.

Cons

Company relies heavily on consultants ability to travel. Many consultants are traveling more then 70% of the time.

Advice to Management

Better staffing model, to accommodate consultants preferences.

    I worked at Acquity Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    In my mind, the acquisition by Accenture was a good thing. Very few agree.

    Cons

    Poor morale. Low energy and enthusiasm. High turnover. The company struggles with an inability to find the talent necessary to keep up with growth expectations. Old equipment. Disorganized. Poor communication. Very young and inexperienced. More senior professionals will likely feel like they are working with interns, which can be very frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to adopt the Accenture way of doing things, you're going to need to make changes among leadership in areas of corporate support that is left over from a very different company. They're caught up in the old way of doing business.

    I have been working at Acquity Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Acquity has the remains of a great culture. It is a fast moving, challenging place to work. You'll come across some very, very bright people.

    Cons

    The founders sold to Accenture and have left. Farewell emails come in every other Friday. The people that have stuck around have to deal with the transition to Accenture, whose culture couldn't be more different. Enjoy using a cheap Dell, doing a PPA on a WBS for TPS reports, and having your projects run by people that have no experience in your field.
