What Employees Say
I worked at McKinsey & Company full-time
Work with some of the most interesting and ambitious people around. Interesting problems with (predominantly) interesting clients.
Long hours are a given, and they increase in direct proportion to your tenure.
I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than 3 years
Great people, fantastic social opportunities, decent career progression. Accenture is a great company to start in and you will learn so much but it's not a company to spend longer than 5 years... working for.
The company is constantly restructuring career paths and changing the rules. The career progress criteria isn't enforced fairly across the board. The higher up you go the more time you're expecting... to do Accenture internal work on top of client work. There should be and usually is internal teams who should be doing this but senior management always rely on a few key people who "get things done". Can be very frustrating.
