Basically, people got tasked to do things they didn't know anything about. Very little guidance all around. Useless management and my team lead was a joke who got yelled at by client in basically every call

Of course you get paid. You just don't have chargeable hours, and that can reflect badly on your performance review. Of course, if your talent specialist and mgmt can't find you roles, then its on them.

Some may say that this is a good thing, that you get paid to basically do training on your own time or to do nothing at all. But in the long run, you can't say you did nothing on your resume. The longer you hang around doing nothing, the more you stay trapped in the company.

It depends on whether you're Accenture internal, or a consultant. If you go to ACCN office, then it's formal office wear. For most projects I'm aware of, most are semi-casual since you work at makeshift offices. Of course, ACCN has a ton of clients and it's entirely dependent on how the client wants you to dress.

Forgot to respond to this. When I say former interns get projects faster, I mean it's because they already know people in the company. ACCN is HUGE about networking. It's much easier to get roles when you reach out to team/project leads directly. Leaders will put the people they know on their projects.

So in your example, if you were a BA intern but joined to do something else entirely, it's very dependent on the people you know. Basically, you have to send out emails to many different leads introducing yourself if you want better options. And you also have to do pseudo-interviews again with the leaderss so they can gauge your knowledge scope.

The Accenture experience is really like trying out those harry potter every flavour beans. Some have great experiences, while others are absolutely miserable, because it's entirely dependent on your project/client. Of the 9 connections I added on LinkedIn when I was there, 6 have already moved on to other companies. All stayed on only between 3 - 7 months.

Sorry if I'm giving you a bad impression even before you start work. But regardless of whether your experience sucks or not, Accenture is still a good company to put on your resume. I personally found another job within 2 weeks of sending out resumes.

If you don't know anyone at all, you will really need to start asking around and send out emails to make introductions. Of course, if your expertise happens to be heavily in demand, then this shouldn't be an issue, since leads will find you instead.

The Accenture experience is really like trying out those harry potter every-flavour beans. Some have great experiences, while others are absolutely miserable, because it's entirely dependent on your project/client. Of the 4 others in my pod who joined at the same time as me, 3 of them left in under 6 months, and mainly because like me, they couldn't get the roles they wanted.

Sorry if I'm spreading doom and gloom even before you even start work. But regardless of whether your experience with ACCN sucks or not, it's still a good company to put on your resume. I personally found another job within 2 weeks of sending out resumes and got a nice pay increment.

No offence but this company sounds like ass... so you get hired onto whatever this programme is or as a entry-level dev and what? you sit around until a project comes to you or you seek one out?

Excuse my ignorance but wow that does not sound like a typical tech company. Is this how all IT consulting companies are like? or is Accenture actually a WITCH company?

Yea sadly thatís how Accenture works, most of the clients are demanding and damn shitty as well. Basically whatever they tell you you got to do even if they have a habit of changing things last min. Itís quite common to see clients shouting at the team or being overly demanding. Guess itís the culture Accenture has.
