Typical career path at accenture is:
Analyst - 2 years
Consultant - 3 years
Manager - 2/3 years
Senior Manager - 2/3 years
Senior Exec - ? years
Watch out for your start date as you can end up being an analyst for nearly 3 years if you start at the wrong time. Accenture make their main promotions in September each year, so if your a September starter than your pretty solid for a 2 year analyst career, if you start in January like I did, you end up hoping that they do a ‘special extra March promotion’ round, meaning you spend just over 2 years as an analyst, otherwise you’re waiting till your nearly 3 years old in the company to become a consultant.
Definitely recommend Accenture as a start to your career, top clients, good pay, fantastic people to work with. But you also have to give up alot personally - long hours, long commutes, and very delivery orientated. I’ve been with the company nearly 3 years now (promoted to Consultant this past March) and now looking to move on as they won’t allow me to transfer home office to Scotland - will miss the people the most!
