    Anyone know anybody that works for them?

    I'm thinking of applying to them but heard they work people very very hard.

    Thanks.

      Work you very hard, I know someone there and they hate it. Apparently you are either stupidly busy, or doing nothing. Some people like the pressure of that though, and they pay very well. A mate of my sister's has been offered a graduate job there, £10,000 welcome bonus.

      i wouldn't go for it just for the money.

      you have to consider other factors such as work life balance.

      accenture = andersen consulting

      very hard work, very long hours, reward only really there for the seniors.

      depends v much on what your line of work is.

      excel monkey fodder in my opinion
      he vuelto, o mejor dicho nunca me había ido!!!!

      Don't they expect their employees to have their passport ready and a flight bag ready so they can travel anywhere, subject to visa requirements, at 2 hours notice? Or was that Anderson? Sure it was one of them.

      Edit, note to self read all replies. Missed afters reply.

      Steer clear of them, they work you very hard indeed. And quite frankly they're shite consultants anyway.

      Life as a consultant is always going to be tough.

      Most Accenture gigs these days tend to lean towards a longer engagement time which means there is less of 1 day here, next day there type work that was seen in the old Andreson days.

      If your new to the game they will work you to very rigid processes which in some cases can work very well from an experience point of view.

      I'd say that working for them (and that may mean quite hard a times) for a bit will stand you in good sted.

      Then go and join someone else at a slower pace to enjoy work work life balance more

      That's what I'm thinking- work hard for a few years, hopefully earn a lot of money, and then do something which is a bit less demanding time wise..

      Of course, I actuallly have to get the job first
