    I worked at Accenture (more than an year)

    Pros

    If you buy into the culture, and the culture buys into you, a huge amount of exposure and opportunity world wide

    Cons

    They do not always practice their core values, and respect for the individual might be hard to find. The communication between Sales staff and client contact staff was limited, even after concerns were registered with Team Lead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check how many associates registered concerns with Managers, who promised follow-up, and never hear anything. Manager Open Door policy is good in theory, but when issues are raised and do not get followed up on by Manager (which is against corporate policy) it adds to the job frustration.

    Pros

    Very willing to find you more work if one platform contract expires.

    Cons

    Some of the managers over the platforms shouldn't be managers due to their experience or knowledge; or should I say lack of knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you ask your employees to push, push, and work overtime. Then please do not complain about overtime when it's payday.

    Former Employee - Processor in Charlotte, NC

    I worked at Accenture full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Their biggest strength are their employees because they are very helpful and knowledgeable of their job. The company as a whole strong really believe in their set of core values and seeks to uphold them in everything they do. Truly a Global company where alot of business is in India

    Cons

    They are an out-servicing company so at any moment a contract can close with a client and you would have to move to another client or be let go. They really do believe in the saying "These chairs have wheels for a reason" because at any moment you could be working with a new client. The pay is not good for this economy. Company feels more like a temp agency

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just be honest with your employees when the time comes about possible job losses. Change your mindset about keeping a close door policy where the employees are the last to know of any new changes

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Every vendor wants to work with you.
    Very process driven, with excellent results.
    Very enterpenurial culture.
    Minimum management oversight for senior employees.
    Super benefits.
    Travel.

    Cons

    Very political at times. Can be reall bad on large projects.
    Slow to change culturally except rename and re-org.
    Poor pay compared to industry. HR rules salaries with no leeway for Managers
    Review/promo process subjective and marketing driven.
    Great cultural mantras that are rarely followed.
    Cut-throat among Execs who are ranked by revenue and try to steal each others business.
    Too many chiefs, very management top heavy with very few who can actually execute.
    Travel.
    People are pigeon holed, hire outside verus internal transfer.
    Time at firm trumps time in Industry for experienced hires when promotions are awarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better, flatter Management structure, reward teaming inside firm versus all or nothing accounts, walk your talk on culture. Treat experienced hires better, recognize ACN way is not the only way.
