Hand on heart I can say that I feel I have learnt more skills that are going to be useful later in life during my year with Accenture then I have at 16 years of school and higher education.

The Organisation

This is low mainly due to the fact I was not based in the Accenture offices but on client site and so there is less "fun".

Certain areas for improvement that I have submitted to HR - so hopefully they will action these.
