Junior Procurement Analyst (Former Employee), Ottawa, ON – April 30, 2012
Pros: great work environment, proper procedures.
Cons: small setup in ottawa.
It's a dynamic workplace where you have opportunity and access to learn from a vast repository of in-house resources. The management may not always be supportive of the idea just like any other organization, but they will support you once you show some worth, desire, and benefits that you can bring to them.
Pros: One of the most respectable I.T. Consultancy – more... corporation in global terms. The corporation itself invests lavishly in superior infrastructure as well as in its employees. If you can demonstrate competitive advantage you have to offer over others, there is room for quite a bit of advancement.
Cons: Ottawa office is a very small-set up in comparison to other global offices. This results in a very constricted set of requirements that they look for in people for advancement; which may not always seem to be a fair judgement of an objective mind. – less

Marketing and Events Procurement Consultant (Former Employee), Seattle, WA – May 15, 2013
Nobody knows what they are doing, they are screwing their clients - charging way too much for their inexperienced employees. Was told "just pretend you know what you're doing/talking about" on my first day.
Accenture provides a unique opportunity to work with a number of different clients across a number of different industries. You can expect to work alongside fantastic colleagues who go the extra mile to ensure deliverables are met.
