  • Accenture to Provide Enhanced Digital Capabilities for Cricket Australia Fans - Cricket Australia has named Accenture, its Official Digital Technology Partner, awarding the company a four-year contract to provide digital transformation capabilities. The contract is part of Cricket Australia’s drive to provide enhanced digital experiences directly to cricket fans, ensuring they can follow the action no matter where they are around the world.

 

  • LASA Telehealth: Transforming Aged Care in Australia—Realising the Promise of Telehealth - Telehealth is a digital technology with major potential for aged care. Despite this, adoption to date has been limited, a key factor being the lack of supporting infrastructure, funding models and integration to the broader health system. In early 2013, the Australian government devised a program to investigate how the National Broadband Network (“NBN”) could support telehealth technology in aged care, cancer care and palliative care.

    Associate Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melbourne
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Accenture (Melbourne) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Quick phone screen with the recruitment consultant followed by one face to face interview with two extremely unprofessional 'Managers', and then with a Director. The second interview was the most unprofessional interview I will ever encounter in my working career - spent 5 minutes of 30 talking about my experience and 25 minutes about the self absorbed director. Interviews speak volumes about the organisation culture and the type of leader you will be working for - no thanks Accenture.
