2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

Accenture really makes their interns and graduates feel valued.I have exposure to senior manager from very early on and the unusual opportunity to move around within the department to department or from country to country.The unique point about Accenture to me is that they don't recruit to someone's knowledge base,they recruit me for the type of person and then teach me the knowledge i need. Every single employee that i have worked has been more than happy to help,interesed in what i am doing and always strived to involveme whereverpossible.
