Q. WANTED TO KNOW WHAT THEY WILL TEACH US DURING TRAINING PERIOD AND SHOULD I HAVE TO TAKE ANY COURSES BEFORE JOINING ACCENTURE. SO PLZ HELP ME.

a. wont teach u nething although they will try hard to make u know every subject within 2 days... which is not feasible at all.......... all objective questions that comes in several company offcampus test ... try to solve yesvant kanetkar's TEST UR SKILL .. that may help u... rest try to find as many online questions on c as possible........ dont learn nething u r never sure
in wat platform u will be put in....

Q. TRNG LOCATION ??

a. Accy HRs will intimate u thru mail as to when ur trainings would start. So don't bother!
You must have given them a preference list as to the order of the locations u prefer. However, before this "Preference List" come a few other priorities. I'll just list them for you.

1. The first priority is based on requirement. If you've opted for Banglore, but there is a requirement in Mumbai(and none in Banglore), you're preference list is gonna be chucked out through the window!

2. If you're preference says Pune, but there are no fresher training facilities in Pune! So you'll be posted to a training facility(say in Mumbai as that's the closest to Pune and also if Mumbai can accomodate you). They may contemplate a transfer later in your career.

Now, if you do get posted to a location you didn't actually picture yourself, you could always request for a transfer.

Your trainings can be anywhere in Mumbai, Hyd, Chennai or B'lore. The location MAY also depend on ur preference sheet which u gave while u successfully cleared the interview. Once ur trainings are over, the HR MAY post u to a different location. But it depende stotally on ur luck wheter u get ur preferred location..u may or may nt

Q. TRNG ACCOMMODATION ??

a. u guys are gonna get royal accomodation during the first 2 weeks. After that u better fend for urself. And yeah...when I mean royal... i mean ROYAL!!!Enjoy while it lasts! Officially...accy wouldn't provide u any help with the accomodation.
However, u could speak to the training co-ordinators here and they'll help u to get a house on RENT.. yeah... its kinda good that we become independend soon! In my case, we enjoyed the first week... come back from office and use the swimming pools and gyms of the places where we stayed, roamed around, made new friends, got dropped by the company bus right in front of our places,etc! After the first week, u'll fell comfy with a few ppl and will start hunting for houses after training! Now, these brokers here know that we're laden with money (IT industry has that kinda reputation), so they make maximum use of it! Finally most of us found houses... the trainin period is usually for 2 months..

Q. IN R OFFER LETTR IT'S MENTIONED THT WE'LL B GETTIN 10,000 FOR RELOCATION..?? IS IT FIXED.I MEAN EVRYBDY WILL GET THT OR DO WE NEED 2 SHOW R EXPENSES WHICH WE MADE 4 RELOCATION N WE'LL GET THT AMOUNT ONLY [OFCRSE UP2 10000...]???

a. All ur expenses will be reimbursed subject to a MAXIMUM of 10k. If u produce bills for 8k u'll only be given 8k. However, even if u produce bills for 15k, only 10k will be reimbursed. 5k is ur own expense. I hope I've clarified this. anything which will contain ur relocation within 10k! And this could also include ur parents flight charge.

Q. CAN WE CHOSE THE TECHONOLOGY IN TH 2ND MONTH F TRAININ? OR WE'LL BE ALLOTTED ONE BASED

ONE SOME CONDITIONS..????

a. The HRs, at the end of the first month of training, will ask u which technology ur most comfy in. If ur comfy with Java, and they've not enough ppl for Java, they'll put u in Java rather than .NET where they've a greater requirement. If ur comfy with nothing, then they'll put u in something they feel best. streams are most of the time decided on random basis, depends upon the requirement at the moment, but chances arebright that you can choose between, three-four streams, while in training and you mite end up, getting technology of yourchoice,well for swappig, depends upon the hr, if she agrees thats fine.

Q. WAT R THE SUB TAUGHT IN TRNG??

a. practicals - C, data structures, DBMS

theory - SDLC etc ...

Q. BENCH PERIOD ??

a. Now on minimum bench period... zero days. You could get locked onto a prj as soon as u exit training. How long will u be on bench if u get there??? As long as some prj needs ur services

Q.WEEKLY APPRAISALS...??

a. i guess u meant weekly reviews of what u've done. Thats all time bound and prj specific. If the prj is into its final phases, u may have a daily review, else it could be a weekly or a monthly review. Now, if u actually did mean appraisals as in evaluating ur performance in accy... then the HRs would have no other job than to keep evaluatingWe've those kind of
appraisals once in six months!

Q. AGREEMENT ??

a. Bond is an agreement between u and the company stating that you'd work with Accy for a minimum period or else paycompensation to the company towards your training and allied expenditure. Now, in Accy... UR asked to sign a bond onlywhen u nearly complete the training. Depending on your technology, the bond amout may vary. For example the bondamount for Java is 50,000/- whereas that for a hot skill like Peoplesoft, it's 1,00,000/-. The bond duration is for one year.Hope i've answered this?

Q. HEY,CAN U TELL ME THE WORK PATTERN IS IT HECTIC OR SO??

a. Work is as hectic as the prj demands. If ur into a maintenance prj, in all probability ur work is pretty chill. If u get into development, in all probability the pressure depends on how fast u move things!

Q. WILL THERE B ANY MEDICAL TEST BEFORE JOINING???????

a. no…

Q. THERE ARE A LOT OF RUMOURS THAT IN INDIA ACCENTURE ONLY HAS OUTSOURCIN N CONSULTANCY...BUT NO CORE TECHNICAL WORK IS UNDERTAKN....I KNW IT CNT BE TRUE LUKIN AT THE STRATURE OF THE COMPANY...BUT STILL WANTD TO CONFIRM IT WID U.....

A. Accenture is Technology, Outsourcing and Consulting company and can expect all types of work in India. If you in to Solution then the nature of work will be technology. Working on a outsourcing way is not easy need to come across lots of challenges. Coz you will be working on a domestic on site format and its challenging to satisfy the clients and its good
experience. It also make you understand how other company works and at the same time how accenture functions its operation. As everyone knows Accenture is the No.1 Consulting company in the world. And technology in accenture is par from many other companies. Lots of scope to learn new techonology. Will scrub shoulders with many Tech savvy guys.

Q. I HAVE A DOUBT, TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT ON-SITE OPPURTUNITIES IN ACCY, IT IS OFTEN SAID THAT SINCE THERE IS ENOUGH WORKSPACE IN OTHER COUNTIES FOR ACCY THERE IS NOT ENOUGH ON-SITE OPPURTUNITES WHEN COMPARED TO OTHER INDIAN COMPANIES WHICH HAVE LESSER PRESENCE IN OTHER COUNTRIES.

a. Oh yeah... onsite opportunities are again prj dependend. If the prj feels u've worked long enuf and that the onsite team could do with u, u'll be there! How long... maybe 1-2 yrs!
Or else if there a kinda training which the prj wants u to do and if this training's only available onsite, they'll send u. Now, does accy give lesser oportunities to go onsite... well Acy has a presence of abt 1.5lac employees worlwide! Whomall will they give an onsite opportunity? Infy (at max)has only half accys strength. So u may feel they send ppl onsite moretoo often. This is my personal opinion. I'm not saying I'm right... but i believe i'm not wrong either

Q. IS THE SALARY GOING TO BE REVISED BEFORE WE JOIN??

a. sal will increase after u join, confirmd, 1yr after u join dat is.. lol.

cheerz..

Q. TEST DURING TRAINING ???

a.well, in training, tests are taken of only those subjects,which are taught during the training, and yes if you fail, you are given two more attempts to secure 60 %, failing to achieve this, could led to termination. u'll have to take periodical exams during ur training... just like we have sessionals during our college. But the only difference is, all u need to do here is pass and this performance wouldn't be considered in ur accy career again

Q.DOES ACCY PROVIDE CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY. ??

a.Depends on what u call cutting edge technology and what kinda job u'll do later in ur career... Now trainings depend onthe trainers the most. I've come across amazingly great ppl (who know the A-Z of the topic) as well as really pathetic ppl(who're just there to get a few brownie points!).
