Accenture New York – The Unofficial Insider’s Guide

Accenture's New York office
The Accenture building on Manhattan.

The Accenture New York office is thought of as something of the Head Quarters for Accenture, together with the Chicago office. Despite its importance, the office is not at all a pleasant environment to work in; it is very old and a bit run down and has old-school cubicles.

Interestingly, Accenture has its Global Image team working in the NY office. The "Ministry of Propaganda" and the antagonists to the Exposing Evil Empire campaign, if you will.

Employee Reviews

Here’s what one former employee from the New York City Office thinks about working there:

"Six of us from a NYC project called it quits and left Assventure for greener pastures at the beginning of 2010.

Stupid incompetent managers, coupled with incompetent client resources. Lots of ass-kissing, backstabbing, hypocrisy, and did I say ass-kissing??

Consultants were forced to do twice or thrice the amount of work a normal person should be doing, as they couldn’t get the client to staff all the positions they agreed to staff at inception. It was brutal, annoying and utterly pointless.

Couple that with the shitty technology we had to work with, or worse implement, made this engagement an utter disaster. Oh, let’s not even discuss all the major and minor ways in which they would basically steal money from the client!! Honestly, how does this company stay in business?? They need to disappear, and soon!"
