Accenture Strategy France

Anonymous A asked on Jul 28, 2019 - 1 answer

Hello, I was wondering if some of you had experience with Accenture Strategy France regarding:

- interviews: it seems like ACN Strat & ACN Consulting are all grouped together for interviews? Any insights on the type of cases assigned?

- Lines of services: Anyone with insights on the different line of services besides their IT Strategy line?

- Is it an "okay" transition if hoping to move towards MBB in 2 years? or, would you advice a strategy boutique?

Thanks a lot,

Hi,

In general the interviews at Accenture are not that structured:

  • No clear guidelines for cases, so the case depends on the interviewer
  • 60% chance that it will be marketsizing
  • 40% chance - profitability and general frameworks
  • Interviewers are less demanding than at Big3. unless you meet an ex-big3 consultant as an interviewer
  • For fit I would prepare: Story about yourself; Why consulting; Why Accenture; Leadership; Team work; Your questions to the interviewer

As for the lines - ACN strategy still has close ties to IT, and that's totally fine. In 3-4 years I believe that 70% of all consulting projects will be in digital for all companies. Also, Accenture is regrouping the lines every 5 years so the actual grouping does not matter.

It's a great company and you can make a transition. I've done it myself earlier.
