What I do

I joined Accenture in 2017. Since then, I have been working mainly as a Software Developer in the technology department of Accenture and more specifically in the Financial Services sector. My role is to support clients have a smoother transition In The New and the digital era by developing patterns and fast responding applications through which they have a consistent and enjoyable user experience.

Since June 2019, I have worked as an Analyst in a very interesting project, in which I took more responsibilities as a team lead. It was by far the most unique and challenging experience, as I had to manage and lead a three-person team.

A day in my life

The following quote by Ray Lewis perfectly describes life at Accenture: (Because)…. Every day is a new day. Every moment is a new moment.

This is exactly what life is like at Accenture. Every day you have to face new challenges. Every moment you need to learn something new in order to keep going. You must have a growth-mindset in order to keep walking and progressing in life. It’s not about technical skills, it’s more about soft skills.

This is the mindset that Accenture tries to cultivate, and I feel grateful and lucky to be part of this community.

Accenture has a unique way of making teams collaborate and interact with each other. Being in contact with other colleagues, makes you feel valued and that you always have a ‘helping hand’ there for you.

The things I like most about working at Accenture are the people, the continuous learning opportunities and the variety of technologies that you can learn and get trained on.

People:
People in Accenture help each other. Highly motivated people collaborate and focus on a common goal – that is delivering value to our clients. Diversity is a word that can accurately describe the people and the teams in Accenture. So many people with different backgrounds, skills and mindsets, working together and making the most out of this interaction.

Continuous Learning:
A path full of learning opportunities is being created in Accenture. This is supported by the initiative of the HR department, which is called “Accenture Greece Academy”. This helps us build our skillset through educational seminars that take place regularly.

Range of technologies:
Another “thumbs-up” is the variety of technologies that we can learn and get trained on. Whether you are a mobile/web developer or specialized in databases or even an AI engineer, the learning opportunities are the same for everyone. Having such a great range of technologies to adapt to and master, is the reason why I chose to work for Accenture.

The project in which I had the most thrilling experience was the AI game: Face and Fake Recognition. My responsibility was to develop a demo (prototype) application which would detect and recognize people’s faces. I had to complete the necessary training and follow specific processes to develop the application.
Although I didn’t have any relevant experience, I delivered it successfully and the application is now included in the Community Event presentation video.

My advice

Accenture is not just a company. It’s a whole new world…it’s the people, the values, the opportunities, the culture, the diversity.
If you wish to grow and broaden your mind the place to be is Accenture.
Everything you’ve ever wanted is one step outside your comfort zone.
