There has been quite a few comments on the net against Accenture’s core values. I just quit yesterday. Its the most wise thing I have done in my life. Its disgusting to experience and observe the horror unfolding in the company. Its just a matter of time when ACN will become another Blue-chip company loosing its clothes in public because of bad corporate practises. To those who are researching the company before you join them : These days having Accenture experience goes against you in the industry as the entire Tech services sector considers Accenture work culture to be appalling. And hence anyone from Accenture is considered as ‘AIDS’. I’m not being vindictive, just plain frank. You can bid you skills goodbye by being with them as it is never encouraged. I was in the Manager level after having extensive IT experience in the industry and a degree from Stanford. The politics practised by everyone from team lead and up have made the environment toxic. Which any imbecile knows is a recipe for disaster. Now that I work for a fantastic financial institution, I really pity the ones still stuck there due to the recession.

Bloody dogs, don't believe Accenture. Just ask ex employees and do you search on the internet to find out the true colours of Accenture. These bastards will never change. Only smooth talking. Kick them on their b***s. They cheat clients and employees alike.

I am an Accenture employee right now andI have worked in Cognizant too. In my opinion work culture is much better in Accenture compared to cognizant. But if you are a fresher and want to learn a lot in short time period ,I will suggest Cognizant.

Accenture no doubt pays better than any IT service base company in india like tcs,cts,infi,wipro etc...i joined acc 2 yrs back while my friends joined tcs,cts. We all had fresher pckg of 3lakhs. now after 2 yrs they are still in 3 and i am in 5.2 nd dat says it all about accenture. A company which pays u betr will obviously expect u to work harder and naturally will be a bit time centric....

Accenture is the worst company with a lot of attitude carried by HR's. Very bad for laterals, they give least hike on current CTS and keep on arguing. They dont need skilled people but people who go for least hikes and thk accenture as IT God. They act as if they are the greatest company in the whole world. CTS is in 3rd place because of positive attitude with skilled resources and respect for them and Accen in 5th place. CTS recognises good work , flexible for women folks not time centric. Quality wrk done.

It doesnt mean accenture is not a good one..but in india.,Accenture was not the best..than Cognizant..
On 14 March 2012 at 10:37 am Naveed said:
well, I am not sure any of the comments above tells anyone which company is better. lot of these are written out of emotions OR because of perception/experience with one aspect that may or may not be specific to an individual. Here I will try to provide more rational comparison: Before you read my comments, decide that you want consulting industry or not. Consulting or outsourcing is ruthless industry when it comes to supply/demand or business needs. If you are not needed, you are not needed. This is true for all the consulting firms. Some would argue that no, some companies try to preserve talent. BS. No one in consulting does that. They probably value the skillset and see if they can preserve the skillset by creating some opportunity instead of letting go the employees. Anyway, it is strictly on business need base industry and your work-life balance will (most likely) be heavy towards work and even if you get it balanced, it will be highly intense job. Reason is simple - you have to deal with shareholders, clients, employees, clients' customers, and clients' shareholders too. Now the comparison: 1. Size = Accenture beats congnizant 2. Culture = Accenture has consistent culture whereas Cognizant culture varies across geographies however, in general both score at par 3. Ethics = Accenture beats cognizant although it is not a clear edge. Both are highly ethical companies. 4. Opportunities = Cognizant may have an edge technically. Here is why. Accenture most certainly has larger foot print and thus more opportunity. However, Cognizant is fast growing so technically in such growing firms, there are always opportunities for improvement and opportunities to s*ine better than the structured/organized/mature environment. 5. Market share = Accenture beats cognizant 6. Market Cap = Accenture beats Cognizant 7. Job security = Tough one. However, Accenture takes the edge in consulting s**ce just because of their size. For Outsourcing, both have the same. remember the geography flavor. We are talking global here. Indian kids - you can find local firms offering more security than possibly US based MNCs but at the cost of culture and ethics 8. Learning = Accenture clearly beats any other consulting firm
On 29 March 2012 at 11:43 am Daryl said:
As a consumer of offsh**e consulting services (testing and development), I can tell you all that Cognizant has a TERRIBLE reputation at my company. They are viewed as inept, incompetent buffoons. We would work with Accenture over Cognizant every single time.

On 7 July 2012 at 12:39 am CTS_t0_Accn said:
I agree with Naveed. I have worked for both CTS and Accenture. In Learning ( trainings - online or cla*sroom ), Accenture beats everyone. Way better than CTS. Though you would find projects more easily in CTS. In Accenture, if you are out of a project it takes more time to get a new project.

I laugh at the c**ksucking guy that says that Cognis*it is the best company. I ´ve been six monthos in the Life Sciences Sector and it is a piece of s*it. Employees are treated like sc*m, robbed from their salary each time they can, they have internal policies that go against the local law and the managers are mostly a bunch of enslaving a*sholes. The only way you can climb in this company is by sucking the b***s blindly of the guy above you. It is only a matter of time before the company collapses due to their incompetent management. Maybe not today, not tomorrow, but in 20 years time, Cognizant will fall.

Title says it all, Cognizant one of the worst companies. They cheat people saying " We will send you offer letter soon" , then after that there will be no response from them. Even they don't reply to the candidates email.If you cant send offer letter, then why do you say that you will be sending one.Do you know anything about Professionalism ? . These cognizant people are absolute cheaters, try to be away from them.

I spent six months with a branch of Accenture. Very successful company and they pay well. No issues there. Sadly the internal politics and wrangling of the middle management was more than I could stomach and I made no secret of the fact while I was there. If I felt the interests of the client were being put first then the company gets my vote but this was not happening. These guys were screwing the client at every turn and were able to get away with it despite the micro-level management recording that goes on. Accenture wont even be appearing on my CV. With 20 years senior consultancy experience, theirs is one name I can do without.

Welcome Kim. It is great to meet you, and find your talent and expcrienee here at UBS. You have validated yourself through action and example, and your accomplishment earns respect among a great audience. Know that there are other like-minded leaders that include my direct report, Eric Schroeder, Director of Service Engineering. From my first day forward, he introduced me to the diversity-supporting programs at UBS, including Women in IT and CAN, and enabled me to grow professionally through high collaboration; ideal for leveraging skills, and avoiding professional ruts that limit us. Eric has fostered some truly inspiring work and education that includes the Service Engineering Usability A*surance Program to benefit IT transformation. In brief, this is a resourceful program that puts increased focus on the early design stage to get to a usable, intuitive system while it aims to reduce development rework. Our deliberation and a**lysis of usability aligns us, and gives us the lift and exposure timely with how UBS is changing. It's empowering, not only women, but people who instill empowerment in others.

As people have mentioned Cognizant has got lot of politics and the management is not that good. Here there is not much recognition to skill/knowledge - if you can s**k up to your manager then your good here. Worthless people are promoted and they become manager - that truth ! Working hard will not take you anywhere.
On 11 January 2014 at 9:57 pm Cognizant said:
We are in a difficult market place with demanding global customers. Cognizant like any other top companies is both customer and employee focused. Cognizant values team culture and they will not leave you alone if there is a problem in your project. Folks from other project will put in extra effort to help you out. And I think that is a great spirit… If we can acknowledge that we should earn reputation for the team we are in, within any group by quality delivery through collective effort – I think Cognizant is the place to be. Cognizant challenges you and it is upto the person’s character to accept it and grow…I think Cognizant is not for “Government style jolly-good-fellow” work style of wandering around etc. Cognizant helps you think like a business owner regardless of what you do in the project or by your designation etc…Cognizant is the place to be,,, people are from wide geographies and a good collaborative workplace.

Hi, Today i went for interview. It was supposed to be F2F managerial final round but surprisingly it was tele round and the interviewer asked only few things and only for few mins. I could not understand what kind of so called FINAL MANAGERIAL round it was. Why did i was called to interview location [Magarpatta tower5 pune] if it could be on telephonic only. And i wanted to discuss my concern with c.kaur but that HR was having too much attitude and was not even ready to listen me. I am not sure whether it was final round or more rounds would be. i was told it would take time you may leave. Why Accenture is to tooooooooooooooooo slowwwwwwwww in recruitment processing.
