It was a toxic cesspool when I was there about two years ago. And don't even get me started on the management, I don't think it was possible to get a more useless group if they'd tried. I'm hoping for the sake of those who are still stuck there... — read more

The last one was on 9-15-2020, just two weeks into the new Fiscal Year. I don’t suspect they will make any moves before the forced holiday PTO. It will be “Happy New Year!” (calendar that is) and should we expect a big slash on Friday... — read more

Is this just how the management and culture operates here? It is hard to bring my “best self” to work each day when I am being just about threatened by management
Accenture is the most abusive relationship I have ever been in. Over a decade here. Like a victim of domestic violence, right when you get ready to leave, they convince you that you can’t do any better. After all, this is Accenture, right? The best... — read more
As acquisitions tend to result in job losses in redundant areas, I wonder how many of us will be laid off or maybe shifting roles now that Accenture has acquired Enimbos? I try to think positive but these are very uncertain times and I can’t help but... — read more

It's easy to leave, right?
I dunno about this new rebranding thing "Let There Be Change" but I am split of the reality and the future of the situation Accenture is in to now. I am for optimistic developments but on the other side.. there are people that were unsure of their... — read more
It s—s that there is so little information available on what's going with the company right now and what are the plans for the future. Personally, I'd rather have transparent management who were honest with us even if that meant knowing I'm slated... — read more

This company is nothing but a source of stress for me lately. And I'm not even talking about constant layoffs! It's the overall work atmosphere, it's the toxic culture, the horrible, incompetent managers who like to take all the credit for what works... — read more
What an insensitive comment to share to HR professionals. HR at Accenture is a joke and very disorganized and one hand doesn’t speak to the other in unison. Either way, they had to clear out the “low performers” that they force-ranked based on who... — read more

I know of at least two people that were hit today. The weird thing was not even their CC nor their Practice manager was aware of who was targeted. Also the performance claim is complete BS. One of the people I know of was a top performer, 100%... — read more
I was working with a L6 - They were working on a CIO internal project full time and also providing sales support for billable projects. They initially got a good review but was still found to be a candidate for layoff. Their last day was 8/31/20. — read more
At least here in the NA. We'll see how things will pan out, but I'd say it'll be brutal. Consulting pipelines are looking healthier but we are still too heavy for the current demand - we need to get smaller. They waited initially as nobody knew where... — read more

Has anyone heard that layoffs have started in India? I think some of the internal people just disappeared with no warning. Wonder what scale that is.
Why was Accenture name removed from the list on the main page?
Is there such a thing as a safe position at Accenture right now? The layoffs in the past several months made very little sense to me considering the people who were let go. It was all over the place - from people with high pay and most experience to... — read more

Just think about it - where can we apply for a new job when everybody is laying off right now? Nobody is hiring and will not be for who knows how long. What does that leave us with? How long before the severance money runs out? I know people... — read more
