"Ex Accenture Employee" from Littleton, CO... you have a lack of basic grammar (can't even use an apostrophe correctly) and are clearly sexist so your points haven't exactly started on the strongest foundations.

Simple question for you - if nobody pulls their own weight, how is it that the company has a turnover in excess of $16bn per year? You say you were in about 10 different contracts and they were all 6 months to 1 year delayed? Obviously I don't know you well enough to judge you properly, but you come across as a complete fool and I wager it's no coincidence that you were involved in all the delayed contracts.

Personally, I've worked on several Accenture (UK) projects and not one has been delivered late - we've hit every milestone and delivered a high-quality solution on-time and on-budget.

Maybe the US practice differs from the UK practice in terms of quality, but your experiences were clearly vastly different to mine.

You are a talent, John (London, UK). Maybe you should work in the US offices instead of picking on grammar or referring other as "complete fools".

I am getting ready start as a contract manager in their contract management decision.

The pay is very solid and I was told that the travel is minimal (only 20%).

They basically state that you gotta work hard with the partners (but still hold your line).

Anybody know anything about the contract manager team?

The funny thing about their slogan.
"High performance. Delivered". Ha, Ha. Who are they trying to fool? I've been in about 10 different contracts, and all their contracts were either 6 months-1 year behind or cancelled by the customer. Working conditions were horrible. I was given a slow, low-performance laptop to work with in a tiny bullpin of other contractors. More like a slave pit, no desk space for your own personals. I even had one supervisor who asked me to work overtime(80+ hours/week) and charge the client for it even there is not enough work to justify it. Every contract I've been on,never had any network access, because my own Accenture supervisors(Services most of the time) were too incompetent to get me access and sufficient hardware and software I need to do my job. On a another contract, they brought me in to do testing. Then they wanted me to write code in.NET . Their division was offering the other divisions mployees (Services and consulting only) free .NET training classes, but people in my division got jeeped. We didn't get to go but expected to write all the other deadbeats's work who got to go and even funnier I was even tasked to train them.
All of them "dump" their workload to me to finish. Definitely nobody carries their own weight.
One thing I didn't understand is they were hiring a whole bunch stupid, incompetent women in management. The whole company is run by stupid bitchy women who ill-treat their subordinates. That's why you are seeing DOJ, State of Colorado and other companies are suing them for selling crappy software that doesn't work at all. No surprise at all.
This isn't the "fairytale" company and job they are trying to sell you. They definitely don't pay software developers good salary. To those who have a IT degree, don't be dissapointed if you find your co-workers you work side-by-side with everyday doesn't even have a bachelor's degree or even a "buy me" degree.
But it's your choice.
Yes so true they allways cheat the clients overbilling them and expect workers to complete assignments with manual intensive means, instead of tools...Snr people are responsiblefor all failures.they don't give a .....want others to be there ...dogs.

Sr Execs, depending on your education and experience can start at 225k. I work in the Reston office (approx 3000 Accenture staff). All the negative comments on this site are NOT the norm. I've been with Accenture for years, and have witnessed some bad managers/staff, but what would you expect for a company with 160K employees? I've also worked in companies with 5000 employees, and there are bad managers/SR execs in those companies as well. Look at what is happening to all the mortgage companies -- aren't the SR. Execs to blame?

Do you know how much do consultants start at?

Going back to Mgr. and Sr. Mgr. salaries, may I ask if it varies from MC to SI&T, skills etc? I've heard that MC Managers make 80-90k, can iit be true?

Um, I think it is clear that the "all the detractors" are just one guy who keeps posting under different names (or they all clearly had the identical experience, "bitchy" female bosses, worked for the same group, like to post rants, etc.)

Far as I can tell it was a contractor hired by ATS that didn't like that he had to work for women that weren't technical. Oh, and he has an ego.

Its strange that if you're technically competent in SI&T and try to do MC they say - "you're not competent enough".

Then you see all sorts of young wanna-be manager women and guys who don't know half of what you know about IT and they are put on the management fast-track with double pay. If you ask why they were put there instead of SI&T you're told - "they aren't competent enough".

Where's the logic behind that? Somebody's beeing fooled...

Can you tell me what a "New Manager" position pay range is? I am in the third round of interviews, and am very interested in seeing what type of pay I might expect...
Also, how much time has the hiring process taken for you?
Any feedback would be appreciated!

I can understand all those bad experiences described on this page - I myself had good and not so good projects at Accenture. And yes, there have been huge unsuccessful projects, e.g. NHS in the UK. What each reader here should consider is that there are a few extreme projects and those are the ones people complain about a lot here (some quite unprofessionally)- for understandable reasons. I believe without doubt that you have made some unpleasant experiences. So have I but so what: I have learned the most from the projects that went bad. The majority of projects however is different - otherwise Accenture would not be as successful as it is over some 20 years now (formerly Andersen Consulting). Please also consider that the experiences and also the compensation scheme vary between countries. I would recommend that if you are interested in a job you find somebody from a local Accenture office who is about 2 years with the company and have a beer with him/her. For, even though I have left after 13 years, Accenture is in my opinion still one of the top employers on the market but it is for sure not the right place for everyone (very demanding environment, high mobility, constant ongoing change).
What you learn and experience at Accenture is a very methodical way of working, an extremely cooperative culture, colleagues who are similar minded like you, equal treatment of men and women, and much more.
And by the way: During my time as analyst and consultant, every single hour of overtime was paid out to me (300 hours per year on average), but I know that this quite often depends on the responsible project partner or manager. So yes, there is light and there is shadow.

Accenture is for sure a place not for everyone, you have to be slave kind...a fairy tale at the beginning but the real benefits are not enough for the daily work, working with ppl who don't even recognise VB code from Java and so on... a shame...
