What is it like working as a Senior Software Engineer at Accenture?
Senior Software Engineer in Mumbai:
"Pay scale is good, but lot of corporate politics."
Pros: They pay you well, good shift allowances/policies.
Brand name, company related policies are good.
Good opportunities for working abroad in support projects.
Fun activities is interesting.
You can grow and learn how to play corporate politics from the Managers .. ;)
Cons: In Accenture, 10 hrs of clocking per day (9 hrs logged) which is above the normal IT industry standard of 9 hrs.
I have been to only 1 support(L1/L2) project in Accenture, there is lot of corporate politics involved.
Unnecessary escalations from the Onshore team and the Offshore management is not capable of handling it.
Associate Manager manages team by bluffing individuals, promising them of better work but cannot deliver a thing. This also creates confusion among team members regarding their responsibilities.
