The respect for personal time is the best thing about working at Accenture, says Sheetal


Tell us about your work at Accenture.

I am an experience designer. Experience design is a human centric design practice that focuses on the engagement and satisfaction a user derives from a product or service and the relevance of the experience to their needs and context. This means that I make using technology an easy and meaningful experience. If I do my job well, you’ll enjoy using your favorite app and you’ll fondly remember it years later.

What does your typical workday look like?

My work primarily consists of learning new things and solving problems. My day starts with me checking my email. I then check my calendar and plan my day. My work involves user research, market research, ideation, wire framing and prototyping. If I need a focus group or a sounding board for my thoughts and ideas, I organize a fun workshop for my colleagues in our studio—and use that to produce quality output.

What is the one thing you like about working at Accenture?

The heart of this organization is its people. Accenture recognizes the individual—here, good work is appreciated and rewarded. Personal time is respected, hobbies are encouraged and there are plenty of opportunities for us to showcase a skill or learn a new one.

Tell us about what you like to do outside office?

Travel. Music. Comics. That’s what makes up my life outside the office. I travel in and around Bengaluru to a new place every other month. I enjoy trekking, adventure sports and the occasional cultural experience.

I am passionate about music and never miss my weekly lessons on Carnatic music. I also create a new comic every week on the life and adventures of my three dogs!

Currently, I’m enjoying growing my baby potato and tomato plants.

What advice would you give to students who are looking to start their career?

I’m a big believer in taking initiative when it comes to the workplace. The best advice I could give is to believe in the power hard work—it can lead to great things!
