I've worked here for a year and a half now. There are only a handful of women managers. I have experienced blatant discrimination based on my sex by a male manager and when I reported it, was retaliated against.
I've worked for the firm for 9 years. We do a great job with cultural diversity in our workforce. However, most women hit the glass ceiling at the Senior Manager level. When you look across our organization, women are under represented at the Managing Director level across all lines of business.
Accenture loves strong women. I have seen quite a few women in leadership roles, who do not compromise their sense of self, femininity *if they choose to do so* or time to build their families. Hard work speaks for itself here.
I've worked here for one year and there are a lot of women working here. Management is male-dominated and not diverse, which makes it tougher for women to "network" with them and establish a candor to feel comfortable.
Women are celebrated and treated just as well as men if not better.
I haven't been here for very long, but I have felt completely comfortable with the company. I will say that there isn't a large representation of women in the highest executive roles.
You can work out flexible hours, e.g. leaving at 5:30 to pick up kids from daycare, but that means working late into the night after your kids go to bed, to catch up on everything.
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.
You will work hard, but the professionalism and quality people you'll meet make this a very special experience.
I've worked here for 2 years and I've had a good experience. I all of the senior managers have been male, but there were a few female managers that I interacted with.
