SAP Technology Consultant

"I came to Accenture after working at one of the Big 4 because they have two things I really want: a fast-paced environment and the ability to constantly learn."

What I do

I work in procurement as part of the Source-to-Pay team within the Finance & Risk practice, designing SAP Ariba. Almost all large companies use an internal software to buy the things they need to run their businesses. My job is to design that software to ensure that employees can buy things easily and efficiently, and that company best practices are being followed. This means meeting with the client to design and customize the software to fit their needs, while coordinating with technical teams to make sure it works.

I came to Accenture after working at one of the Big 4 because Accenture had two things I really want: a fast-paced environment and the ability to constantly learn. The work constantly changes depending on the project or client you’re working on, and there is always the opportunity to learn new skills. At the same time, you can develop a niche skill and focus on a specific area.

A day in my life

There is no typical day at Accenture, which keeps things interesting. Roles and interactions change from project to project. My typical day usually includes 2-3 hours of client workshops in the morning or calls with tech teams in India or the Philippines, with follow-up meetings or status updates in the afternoon. The in-between time is focused on client work or starting the next deliverables. I usually spend a few hours on Fridays on internal Accenture work or personal development.

One recent project for a multinational financial service company was an extremely rewarding and positive experience. Strong buy-in and ownership from both client leadership and our day-to-day contacts set us up for success. The collaboration between our teams was frequent, iterative and we made decisions quickly.

The best thing about Accenture is the people; I truly think they’re the most talented in the industry. Accenture’s core value of “best people” is something that’s evident every day. Your colleagues and leaders are smart, supportive and always willing to lend a hand.

“I think the people at Accenture are the most talented in the industry.”

My advice

Don’t be afraid to jump right in. If you’re in a position where you don’t have the right skills or experience, like I’ve been many times, that’s perfectly okay. The first step is taking ownership; it’s OK to not know something, but don’t let that prevent you from figuring out how to learn it. Support is always available at Accenture.
