If you join as a new joiner, it is high possibility, you are trained to work on specific technology, as per the needs of the projects. For new joiners, Accenture has an approximate 2.5 months of Greenfield training. Earlier it used to be a good base for new joiners. Not sure how it works now. But it definitely needs to be upgraded.
The working culture is much better than other service based industries in India. (That’s my experience overall)
The leave policies (medical, vacation, for mothers as well) is pretty good.
You would not be sitting ideal for too long for sure, so if you like being occupied, given work, this is a good place.
During appraisal, you generally get a decent hike (not for people finishing in lowest grade!)
There are people here staying for long tenures of their careers 7–10–12 years. If you are in a comfort zone, you will stay as long as there is a strong reason to switch over.
If you are in a good project, the learning will always be there. It also depends on the attitude of the employee.
Being a service industry, the working hours are sometimes very tedious. 9 hrs of work and add to that the travel time.
The bell-curve has been removed officially. But internally it still exists (Thats what i feel, because otherwise there is no way to rate a person’s performance. Comparison between employees is the only way to rate a person higher or lower based on their performances.) This makes it inevitable for an employee to have a good rapport

I was actually contracted to work for Accenture, even though I applied for both the contract position and the one directly through Accenture. For those who don't know, this is a tactic Accenture uses to drum up more applications (since they show up under a different company name) and avoid having to pay out benefits or adhere to labour laws set out for a regular employee. I know this information is publicly available, because I asked about it before I signed my contract, and they told me. You can be terminated with no notice, they do not have to pay a minimum three hours if you go home sick, andat the end of the contract, they don't have to take you on as permanent if they decide to keep you. They can EXTEND your contract for up to another six months, meaning six more months of grinding to meet the stats and fearing for your job (they drop people like crazy) and six more months of no benefits or job security.
What they did to me and other contracted workers though is even worse. It was still several weeks before our set contract end date, and we still hadn't received notice as to whether we'd be extended. Instead, Accenture waited until my day off to contact our contractor, tell them our contract was ended effective immediately, and that we were not permitted to call or even visit the office for our belongings. I live ten minutes away and they mailed me my things.
As far as actual work life at Accenture, it was actually better than most contact centers. The management
