What I do

As a Management Consultant in Financial Services, I work with clients to find solutions to the multifaceted issues and challenges they encounter in their business.

My projects challenge me in new ways every time; I enjoy big picture strategy as well as detailed problem-solving and the diversity of our projects allows me to do both. I’ve been part of two large IT transformation programs, and it is incredibly satisfying to design and execute creative business solutions in order to achieve the project’s goals. Consulting enables me to explore different areas of the industry, pursue different opportunities and develop new and existing skills.

A day in my life

Currently, I’m part of a team of experts working on a large transformation project for a finance enterprise. I oversee and manage the array of initiatives that enable the transformation, checking on their status’ and monitoring issues and risks. I then analyze areas where value will be delivered and report this to the organization’s C-suite.

Accenture plays a huge role in the project and it’s interesting to see the different capabilities we bring to the table. We constitute more than 100 of the project’s workers, offering expertise and solutions on a variety of fronts such as technology, strategy and data analytics. It’s exciting to see our people put their multiple skills to work—I find myself discovering new things every day!

As part of the team, I receive a lot of support in what I do, which has helped me unlock more of my potential. I have developed skills in project management, and I continue to enhance my problem-solving skills with industry knowledge I gain from my colleagues. This is because our work environment makes it easy for me to seek and receive expert help and advice.

This is one of my favorite things about Accenture. I feel incredibly strongly about creating an inclusive, supportive environment for everyone, from analysts to senior leadership. I helped organize International Women’s Day and shared my experiences on the panel. I was proud of the positive feedback and support we received from our leadership! It strengthened my faith in our ability to work together to make things better. Moreover, I found it very meaningful to be able to contribute and make a difference to the workplace.

My advice

The work of a management consultant can be tough, but it’s also very rewarding. To thrive in this role, you need the mindset and skills of a problem-solver, a passion for making things better, and a will to dive headfirst into the uncharted waters of new projects and business challenges.

There will be pressure and some long nights but remember to always keep your head up, stay positive and ask for help whenever you need it. Your colleagues will give you help you need to grow your knowledge and skills and support you in achieving your goals. When you’re comfortable, you can help and support the next ones along!
