For those who don’t love playing politics but have continued to advance in your organizations, how do you succeed while staying authentic? Worried about falling behind because I don’t “play the game.”

For those at Accenture Strategy London, I’m supposed to be joining as a Strat Analyst. Is it worth joining? I’m seeing a lot of negative press on FB but I’m assuming it’s mostly in the US. I would say I’m quite surprised they are paying Management Consulting salaries at Analyst level though. However I’m more interested in the work and L&D. Is the work “strategic” or is it more ops consulting/implementation? Which teams/industries do more “real” strategy focused projects than others?
