Our culture is top notch

You might find a culture you love at ACN or you might hate it. Groups operate very differently without a lot of leadership from the top.

Accenture is huge so you're going to get a lot of different answers

Nothing is better at ACN... stay away

Why?

Currently at Expert Director level and part of BCG Analytics brand. ACN Strategy & Consulting practice. Whats the share of tech/non-tech projects (ACN has always been more visible on Digital and tech projects). Does ACN have a lot of internally developed proprietary tools/products they generally deploy in projects (BCG is mostly customised).

Thanks so much VP1. You clarified a lot of doubts. Appreciate the help.

What practice, what level are you at now, what are you looking for?

Depends on who you’re working for, truly. Just like any company. We’re a culture of cultures sometimes because of size. But core culture is hard working, smart people, who want people to have a good working experience. Understanding and human during tough times. With Julie as CEO, I see more and more kindness and collaboration than ever. Bad apples at every company, but I see them getting phased out constantly. Things are good here.

More relax life at MD level

A5 - thanks for sharing your thoughts and clearing some doubts. Appreciated!

Which practice?

What MD level is the role for? (I.e.: director (cl2)/senior exec (cl3)/exec (cl4) )

Should I have asked for the highest range then of $80k-$90k? Worst case scenario, I don’t want it being revoked.
