Accenture Maternity Leave Comments
  • "There are women-specific, internal, networking and social groups. Working for 9 years, I've seen projects that were predominantly male and some that were predominantly female, so my experience would be a 50/50 split as far as demographics. I did not encounter any situations with anyone taking maternity leave, so cannot speak to that." - Lady anon500
  • "This company is probably one of the most progressive with respect to health care options, maternity leave options, and options for positions within a variety of industries." - Madam anon503
  • "I have worked here for a number of years and I believe that women are treated fairly. There is a strong gender balance at most levels and the company actively seeks to be in line with best practice to reach gender equity (e.g. shared parental leave, mentoring programmes, women-specific support programmes)" - Lady Current
  • "Globally it has some of the best maternity packages available, and there is a genuine commitment to encourage diversity and support women. However, this generally only translates in the enterprise and support roles - most women can't/won't consider the front-line consulting roles when managing a young family." - Madam MoMO
  • "Generous parental leave policy (16 weeks paid) and generous paid time off (4-6 weeks), but the travel and hours/overtime typical of consulting work might be difficult with children." - Lady anon736
  • "11 years with the firm, only recently returned to work after maternity. It's difficult to keep up with colleagues who burn 10+ hrs a day when you have small kids. Standard work load requires long hrs, always has. The company does support working parents and has several initiatives but bottom line is there isn't any less work and people get frustrated when you have to leave each day. My experiences up to being a parent were good no gender bias that I could see. Excellent maternity benefits, healthcare and other benefits." - Lady ChiefBottleWasher
  • "Great maternity and paternity policies " - anon1611
