Not what I was told it would be

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Accenture full-time

ProsHas major client projects, has some great staff who really know their areas

ConsHas a bullying culture (consultancy work force), total lack of vision, no communication (too secretive), breeds managers and directors with no professional skills, directors expect obedience, not interested in innovation, reduces every project to cheapest resources (not the best ones who won the project)

Advice to Senior ManagementRemove 80% of all directors they have no idea what they are doing in fact worse what they are talking about its embarrassing

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
