Accenture - career advice

 
#1 Accenture - career advice

I started with Accenture in Jan 2000 and just got laid off. A couple reasons for this is that I got promoted early, had outstanding contribution ratings, and thus got nice pay raises but ultimately I was deemed too expensive to staff. Yes, this is how things have changed since the economy soured and Accenture went public a couple years ago. While I had a spotless performance record it came down to just few thousand dollars extra in my salary (compared to the average Consultant salary) that sealed my fate. I have friends from my January 2000 start group still working with Accenture because they subscribed to the theory that longevity at Accenture means not taking big pay raises, not getting promoted too early so that you can stay staffed on projects doing either grunt work or work that is way over thier heads. Bottom Line: The Partners and Managers at Accenture will step all over the Analysts and Consultants to stay ahead. It is an ugly firm and an ugly business. New Graduates, you DESERVE BETTER!

You are absolutely right. Accenture does not like people to stand out and shine. "Fitting in" with the existing mediocrity is key to survival. Face it, their whole business model is to bolt on the software that other companies (eg SAP) develop; nothing original or innovative by themselves. They have a long way to go to learn how to get the most out of people and help them maximize their full potential.
