As a mother of five and a Technology Consulting Senior Manager at Accenture, I’ve become the master of multitasking. And I know that with the right, supportive work culture, you can grow your career and do work that really makes a difference, without sacrificing time with your family.
Balancing it all
Before I joined Accenture, I knew of the company’s reputation for supporting women in the workforce. Once I joined the company and interacted with other working mothers, I really understood how they were able to balance their families and their careers—and very successful careers, at that.
I’ve found that the most important thing is to take time for your family and work your schedule around that time.
Hands-on with the hottest tech
Working with new IT can encompass many dimensions. We get hands-on and provide solutions for our clients that encompass aspects of artificial intelligence (AI), automation and cloud transformation.
The most exciting project I worked on was providing high-quality, modern engineering and testing services for a multinational mass media and entertainment client work. It’s been my favorite by far because it afforded me the opportunity to work with various business segments within the client’s landscape, as well as various global teams within Accenture.
The client work consisted of more than 50 projects at any moment in time, and each day was never the same. Our services were integral to each business unit’s success, and I gained invaluable knowledge about both the client and Accenture’s business.
Collaborating for success
We’re a very collaborative team, and we learn from and support each other. For example, if I need specific guidance on cloud migration, I know I can contact a colleague with a cloud certification and that really understands infrastructure.
I love the people I work with. I love the clients I work with; I learn something new from them every single day. And I love that I’ve been able to build my career and find the work-life balance that works for my family.
