From your point of view, how would you describe the culture at your firm? What are the strengths and shortcomings? Please do mention the business unit / line of service and location since the culture tends to be fragmented at big corporations.

Accenture in DC. WLB and culture are okay. I don’t feel particularly comfortable as a minority military veteran. Colleagues outside of my immediate team assume I’m stupid from two different fronts.

I’m a veteran as well. I’m not going to say I haven’t gotten that vibe before within ACN, but it has been extremely rare. Being in DC there is a ton of exmilitary within the firm. Using that as a support group will definitely help with your transition.

Just want to vent… am I the only person who doesn’t want to stay WFH full time forever? Starting my career virtually hasn’t necessarily been bad, I just feel really disconnected from my team and partner. It’s hard to get to know people casually over teams. Living in my 600 sqft apartment with my boyfriend working in the other room is also tough. It feels like my world is smaller. I just feel like I’m sorta missing out on something.
