Please, introduce your company. What is Accenture like as a workplace?

Accenture is a global consulting and services company active in almost all industries. In the IT sector, we provide clients with technology solutions including digital business transformation, data analytics, automation and cloud services. At Accenture, we focus on innovation and quality and continuously improve the business value of our clients around the world. We are a global technology company, with global standards (e.g. software development and project management practices), global benefits (e.g. access to a rich professional knowledge base), and cross-border projects in which the employees of the Budapest office also take part.

We have two offices in Budapest. One is in the 11th district, Hauszmann Alajos street, and the other is the Váci Greens Budapest office, where the Advance Technology Center is located, in the 13th district, next to Váci street. We have 738,000 colleagues worldwide and more than 800 people work in Hungary from all corners of the country. Thanks to our hybrid working method, we meet face-to-face with our core team about once a week.

The common characteristic of green fox students is that they not only want to solve problems but are also good at it.
