    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management, hmm.. For starters, when you bring in a large group of people for training. The TRAINERS....should know what they're doing so the TRAINEES can understand. Most important is the people they let in the building. For such a "high security private forbiddin of conversation" work place. To have predators looking for any attention they can get from a girl so they have to sexually assault you then once you've had enough you leave and are called to be told to "take a break as long as needed" then a week later to be told "we don't have another spot for you". But are advertising it all over any job site you look on and I actually know people who are still going for interviews. Haha, quiet ridiculous if you ask me. So to management, before you have a lawsuit on your hands. If I were you.. I would be doing any and every thing to make sure that doesn't happen and be weary of any lawsuits coming your way. B I G G E S T JOKE IN BLOUNT COUNTY!

    Cons

    Salary Work Life balance Sr Managers curse at employees

    Advice to Management

    Respect your workers * Before I left I witnessed a Sr. Executive curse at an employee in front of all the developers in an open room. They then fired the employee on the spot. Pay them at minimum market value * I sat on the team that was put together to improve the work environment at the San Antonio delivery center. We were told by Senior Leadership that the SADC had its own salary policy called below below market value salary in which they offered jobs below the below market value range for San Antonio due to its cost of living. I respect the honesty not the practice. CHANGE IT!!!

    I worked at Accenture full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with smart colleagues and mentoring recent graduates.

    Cons

    Management spends little to no time is spent setting expectations for client engagements or individual development. Small cabals in each practice take credit for the work of all other colleagues and this is encouraged by senior management. Solutions for new client opportunities are reheated from previous work - everything is derivative. The real problem is that Accenture uses the solutions and tool-sets developed by clients and brands them as its own. They will work you until your are dead without second thoughts.

    Advice to Management

    The many internal initiatives to revise management policies and procedures are a facade. The equivalent of putting paint on a pig.

    I worked at Accenture as a contractor

    Pros

    Working on site at the Facebook offices was a dream until Accenture took over the contracts.

    Cons

    If you don't mind being talked to in a condescending manner, having zero feedback or guidance, and dealing with corporate bureaucracy- then this job is for you.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that you employ human beings and treat them as such.
