Moving to the Cloud: Why I Love Working in Technology at Accenture

From the diverse, welcoming environment to unparalleled technological innovation, Accenture has presented me with the tools I need to thrive in my career.

I began my Accenture career in human capital management software. Today, I’m in a project-management (PMO) role for a global project focused on developing, delivering and operating a high-performance talent-management model aligned to our client’s global talent-recruitment, development and retention goals. When our project is implemented, the client will be able to manage data entirely in the cloud—a much more innovative and effective solution than what they currently use.

This project is my first involving collaboration with global team members, including Accenture professionals from Japan, the Philippines and Holland. This kind of global project with an international team is possible in large part because Accenture Technology has a strong, diverse work culture that values individual strengths. We have an open, welcoming company culture where everyone is encouraged to “think straight and talk straight.”

The technology we work with has changed so much since I started working for Accenture seven years ago, when the mainstream was on-premises systems. Now, it’s all about cloud solutions. In addition to providing better options for our clients, migration to the cloud has also provided additional flexibility in how, when and where we work. I can connect with my team and deliver great work for our clients wherever there’s internet access. I gave birth to my son in 2015, and this heightened my need to work effectively and efficiently to achieve the work-life balance I need.

When my colleagues are working hard for our client, it motivates me to work hard as well—both for the client and for my team. I also feel appreciated by our clients, and that makes all the hard work worthwhile.
