Accenture has a good reputation. I will never understand why.
Accenture always talk about what a progressive, inclusive and fun place they are to work, with a great work-life balance.
None of this is true.
In my experience they are deceitful, and bullying by the management is accepted.
When I was recruited for this company, I was only in contact with one of Accenture’s own recruiters. Only, when the time came to sign the contract, they put me in contact with Hays, a recruitment agency. Suddenly I wasn’t to be an employee at Accenture at all, I was only a contractor.
I want to make it clear I have nothing against Hays, and they were nothing but respectful and kind to me all the time I worked there. But that Accenture has to deceive people to make them accept a possision with them, speaks for itself.
The training I received was okay, but the moment it is finished you are expected to know everything, and when I needed to ask for help, I would either be ignored or flatly told «no».
This was off putting at first, and in the beginning I thought my team leader and manager were simply busy.
Only to discover they were outright ignoring me and keeping me out of the loop.
I was not informed about important changes, meetings or things I allegedly did «wrong». Instead of simply talking to me, they ignored me and told Hays my performance was lacking.
As someone who suffers from a chronic condition that kept me at home more days than what is normal, I expected this to be met with understanding. Instead Hays called me up, informing me that Accenture had complained - more...
You learn marketable skills
Terrible pay, incompetent management, workplace bullying, no work-life balance
Excellent place to gain in experience, if you are motivated and eager to learn.
The diversity is a plus within the company, thus creating a fast paced environment.
Unfortunately there isa lack of style in the management.
the team work spirit need to be reconsidered
I started at Accenture as a collector analyst without any experience.
I feel that a developed and improved my skills and got a priceless knowledge and expreriance which will help me to grow in my career in future.
There is also a good team to work with. Very helpfull and friendly people.
