Accenture’s True Colors
I joined Accenture as a fresher and worked there for 11+ years.
I have worked from 4-5 Accenture locations in India and I was very flexible to relocate. Was on the bench for hardly one month in the entire 11 years.
Then after 11 years when I ended up on the bench and was not able to find a good project in one month they started forcing me to move to different locations and if I had said No then they would have given me “refusal tags“.
Three refusals and I would be out of the company. I told them that currently due to my kids’ studies I will not be able to relocate for 18 months (which is Accenture’s minimum relocation criteria). I can manage for six months but not more than that. But there was no soft corner and I was threatened to say Yes to the relocation. This forced me to hand in my resignation papers.
Eleven years of loyalty, good work, dedication, flexibility, 10+ hours of work almost every day, several automation’s, awards, etc. – nothing was there to save me from the heartless Accenture.
Finally I moved out of Accenture. The company which I loved once upon a time had showed me its true colors.
I would never ever want to join Accenture back.
Love the work, not the company as for Accenture you are nothing if you are not in a project.
