Women's Job Satisfaction
and equally to men
to other women

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.

It's who you know, if you network with the right people and people like the work you are doing, you will see movement in your career and the cool projects will come your way. They say there is flex work-life balance but working in the consulting world there is really no such thing, Accenture or otherwise. You will however find that some managers and projects are willing to be flexible so you may not have to travel M-Th or every week, I've been working at Accenture for 4 yrs and even though I have not seen upward mobility in my career, the flexible projects do come my way and salary and merit increases do happen every year. The people are great to work with here, very smart, hard working driven folks so you wont get any slackers on a project, if you do they tend to find their way out of the organization fast. You will find people on your project that are flexible and understand that people have a life outside of their current client and project and support you when you need to head out early or cant travel one week.

Women are treated somewhat equally at the Analyst level, but in moving up the ladder the organization becomes significantly less equal. Men are valued, women are diminished and do not advance at the same level as men. The exception are HR and Finance, but those are lesser paying areas. There are token women in Director roles, but certain less than the % of women at the Analyst level. Women who are experienced hires (previous experience) with more than 15 years of experience are placed at much lower levels than are men who are experienced hires with the same experience and credentials. Most men come in at the Sr. Mgr or Director level. Women come in at the Consultant or Manager level and then move up the ladder at a much slower rate. Accenture touts itself as a company with great diversity, but if you look across the leadership levels there is little to no diversity.
