Accenture – Why Work With Us?


Accenture is a leading global professional services company, providing a broad range of services and solutions in strategy, consulting, digital, technology and operations.

Our Business

We help organisations maximise their performance and achieve their vision.

We develop and implement technology solutions to improve our clients’ productivity and efficiency —and may run parts of their operations on their behalf. Ultimately, we enable our clients to become high-performance businesses and governments.

Accenture Strategy shapes our clients’ futures, using our deep business insight and understanding of how technology will impact their industries to envision — and deliver —solutions at the intersection of business and technology.

Accenture Consulting transforms our clients’ businesses by using our deep industry knowledge to identify their issues, and then leveraging Accenture’s capabilities to deliver innovative, tailor-made solutions.

Accenture Digital digitizes our clients’ businesses, enabling them to harness the power of digital tools — such as analytics, interactive marketing and mobility services — to improve the user experience for millions of end users. 

Accenture Technology powers our clients’ businesses with innovative technologies—established and emerging — changing the way their people and customers experience work, life and entertainment.

Accenture Operations delivers continuous, rapid fire innovation and new business capabilities that meet — and redefine — the needs of the digital era.

Accenture Corporate Functions — including Human Resources, Finance, Legal, Marketing and Communications, and Workplace Solutions - offers the essential expertise that enables our more than 384,000 employees to deliver high performance to our clients.



Accenture's The Dock is a multidisciplinary research and incubation hub, developing solutions to some of society’s most complex issues. Located in the heart of Dublin’s Docklands, our teams are helping clients unlock their innovation potential through an entirely new approach to innovation, shaped by design-led experimentation and co-creation, and powered by new and emerging technology.

Our teams consist of designers, developers and domain experts in artificial intelligence, IoT, digital marketing, liquid applications, cyber security, advanced analytics, rapid prototype design and experiential design. Working side-by-side in a flexible, open and collaborative workspace we are innovating at pace and at scale.

By joining Accenture, you will be part of a global company with a world-class brand and reputation, reinforced by a code of business ethics and core values focused on serving our clients, developing our people and contributing to the community as responsible corporate citizens

Collaboration

Bring your best ideas to work every day and expect your colleagues to do the same. You’ll work with diverse teams of highly motivated people who are collaborative and focused on delivering value for our clients, and you’ll have the chance to learn from all of them—supportive, approachable leaders and colleagues with deep market relevant skills and expertise.

Core Values

  1. Stewardship - We take pride in fulfilling our obligations to build a better, stronger and more durable company for future generations, protect the Accenture brand, meet our commitments to stakeholders, act with an owner’s mentality, develop our people and help improve communities and the global environment.
  2. Best People - We continue to attract, develop and retain the best talent for our business—people who demonstrate a “can-do” attitude—and we foster a collaborative and mutually supportive environment even as we challenge them.
  3. Client Value Cration - We enable clients to become high-performance businesses, and create long-term relationships by being responsive and relevant and by consistently delivering value.
  4. One Global Network - We leverage the power of global insight, relationships, collaboration and learning to deliver exceptional service to clients wherever they do business.
  5. Respect for the Individual - We value diversity and unique contributions, and we foster a trusting, open and inclusive environment, treating each person in a manner that reflects Accenture’s values.
  6. Integrity - We’re ethically unyielding and honest, and we inspire trust by saying what we mean, matching our behaviors to our words and taking responsibility for our actions.

Inclusion and diversity are fundamental to our culture and core values, fostering an innovative, collaborative and high-energy work environment.

Having a diverse workforce of people with different cultures, perspectives, abilities and experiences enables Accenture to compete effectively in the global marketplace.

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) promote inclusion and diversity.

Each of our local offices drives initiatives and programs to support our people at that location and to help them build strong networks, both within Accenture and with the broader community.

ERGs may be organized around common needs or interests, including abilities, age, career path, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity and expression.

The groups often develop based on local demand and interest, and differ from location to location, but they all promote inclusion and diversity through education, awareness, professional and personal development and cross-cultural interactions.

All of our ERGs are open for any of our employees to join.

undefined

At Accenture, we celebrate our cultural diversity with global and local activities throughout the year.

We also aim to provide our employees with the resources and training they need to work effectively across cultures, either virtually or face-to-face, including tips on business etiquette in different countries.

Training is a priority in Accenture’s overall career experience, and is one of the most effective ways we make inclusion and diversity part of our culture. To educate our people about our culture, we provide a variety of training programs so they can succeed in our diverse work environment at any stage in their careers.

A diverse workforce brings with it a broader skill base, creativity and the innovation that enables our people to focus on helping our clients achieve high performance.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.
