Working at Accenture: what's it like?

Accenture
IBM

#1

Following on from another recent post in the Consulting forum here - http://www.wikijob.co.uk/forums/consultancy-consulting-firms/178-graduate-outsourcing-consulting-accenture.html - I was wondering if anyone had any information regarding working in IT consulting, at companies such as Accenture and IBM.

Furthermore, a question from the Accenture online application seems to be troubling some applicants. How would people tackle:

Describe what your day to day tasks and activities might be as an analyst on a project at Accenture?

All suggestions and thoughts are much appreciated.

Many thanks…

Hi Redsuperted,

There is a lot of information available at this IT Consultants’ forum. A quick search should probably do the trick since consultants working for these companies often share their experiences with projects, companies and the recruitment process itself.

I have a friend who works in Accenture. He spends 3 weeks out of 4 in texas, and that’s only because he managed to make a deal with them to let him stay in the UK for the foruth week.

Lots of hotel rooms and nights in with you and your laptop!
