Accenture is filled with opportunities, and it's for sure important to deliver results - but that doesn't get you where you want to go. I have had several senior women as mentors/guidance and I'd encourage any woman who joins to find a couple of senior women to learn from. Some of the key tips I've gotten and are practicing: be crisp on your story/pitch and your selling points, be comfortable with "showing off" (it can be done elegant), figure out what you want to do, and then be proactive about asking for it and dont clean up after meetings or offer to be involved in the support roles - that all impacts the way your colleagues see you. On work-life balance: Senior people expect a lot, and you can easily put in 60+ hours if you dont protect yourself. If you want a work-life balance (I dont work in the weekends) while still getting ahead, you got to make strategic choices about what to get involved in and protect yourself. Finally, Accenture is definately leaning towards a maskulin culture, so you got to be ok with adapting to that way of working.

Technical Project Manager

N/A

I've been with Accenture, assigned to the same client, for almost 10 years. Accenture is very mom-friendly, very flexible and has great benefits. Although there are many, many women in senior management across the world, in my geographic area the "boys club" vibe still exists. Base pay is good. Raises have been very light for the last few years of everyone but the superstars.

Say Gotten Better
I moved to the Ireland Office, where there is a greater focus on female leadership. Accenture has also rolled out a global "Developing our Women" training programme that I'm finding to be quite helpful.Accenture announced a bold new gender parity initiative in June 2017: June 14, 2017 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) today announced that it will achieve a gender-balanced workforce, with 50 percent women and 50 percent men, by 2025. Over the past several years the company has set milestones on the path to gender equality. These include: • Setting a goal to reach 40 percent women new hires by 2017 – and achieving it a year early • Promoting its largest percentage of women to the managing director level in 2016 (30 percent) • Growing its percentage of women managing directors to 25 percent globally by 2020
