Pros & Cons

  • The people and the various skills you can learn whilst an analyst.
  • World wide opportunities and 100's of thousands of people to learn and grow from.
  • There is a lot of support from upper management. Good mentors in projects.
  • Everyone is extremely helpful and friendly and you get the opportunity to learn about lots of new technologies.
  • The learning opportunities
  • Lack of routine and having to work from client site majority of the time.
  • waiting lists to go on training trips, and the amount of information that is thrown at you when you start.
  • Pay is low for grads. Sort of work(Tech Consulting) is different from what they advertise in recruitment events(Actual Management Consulting work).
  • Nothing so far
  • Due to the nature of the work sometimes you will end up on a project that doesn't really interest you.

There is a 'Perks at Work' program

Training
One thing that was promoted/promised as a graduate is the opportunity for international training and to meet analysts from overseas offices. This does not happen and I went on local training. Something to keep in mind given that this is one of Accenture's main draw cards for graduates.

Work Hours
Fairly flexible, but when there are deadlines no way for flexibility and lots of stress
6.5
Sustainability
There is some effort with turning the lights off, not printing, etc, but this could certainly be improved
