      Accentures Foot Stool

      7 Feb 2021 - Senior Consultant in Sydney
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Market relevant remuneration, gadget allowance, some senior managers (but very few) willing to mentor.

      Cons

      Long hours (due to understating statements of work) simply to win business. Account Managers nowhere to be seen when stakeholders on client side use bullying tactics to get what they want. Accenture promote sycophant graduates to management level positions and before you know it, you are taking vague orders off an inexperienced person 10 years younger than you. Being a sandbag - you will not grow. You will be left to rot on an account with zero prospects of growth, support or direction. You're just a sandbag with a marginal rate that someone else benefits from when all the hard work is done by others on half the salary.

      Pros

      the pay and bonuses are good - if you like to be stung even more at tax time

      Cons

      Boring work. Treated like a number. Very high turnover of staff. Profits over people. Lots of rhetoric and hot air. No real leadership in the Australian team. Many racist and sexist comments/behaviours are laughed off as "banter".
