I received an offer at Accenture, SF office as an analyst in their consulting branch. I would like to partake in projects/roles in product development. Is SF office the place to be?

It’s the place to be if you want to do staff aug at tech companies all around the bay but not in SF


As an analyst in the SF office, I will say that you’ve got to really want to live in SF to be able to work here. Rent is too high, it’s hard to meet people, and most projects are “local” but that could mean commuting ~2 hours each way every day to go work in San Jose. There’s definitely a lot of projects though, and quite a variety of them.


Haha you do sound like you’re from the army! Yes Accenture is a good place to be, just try not to stay there too long! Use it as a jumping board.

While there may a ton of projects, you rarely get to choose your project yourself. You can tell your tfs your preference. But get the notion of picking what you want to do out of mind. They will likely just staff you where they need you

Pretty sure that’s true most places. Like always, it’s what you make of it.
