Work-life balance means different things to different people. For me, flexibility is the key and I absolutely have this on my role at Accenture (I am measured on delivery, not how many hours in the office etc).
When your work is interesting or deadlines are fast-approaching, it's very easy to dismiss the '-life' part of work-life balance.
My solution to maintaining a healthy work-life balance is managing and prioritizing my workload to get it done more efficiently, faster and within 9-5pm. This leaves me with my evenings free to spend with family, friends or hobbies.
Fortunately, Accenture encourage a social side to work and you may find yourself going for drinks or dinner with your team after work sometimes (celebrating releases and go-lives).
Accenture has policies that support worklife balance, such as the opportunity to apply for part time working and opportunities to work from home. Accenture also has a strong People Advocacy culture with teams of people working on ensuring our people within their practices and those working at client site score high on well being and engagement.
