    Learned so many skills, but the political game can be tough to play.

    Senior Analyst (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsYou learn very valuable, easily transferable skills. If you get on the right team, you'll never want to leave. Smart people.

    ConsThe ratings process is the best they can do, but it can be very unfair. Comparing technical resources to management consultants isn't the right way to do it.

    Good place to start

    Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    Prosgreat people. good pay. pretty good work life balance

    Consprojects are very hit or miss. Accenture Federal Services is incredibly bureaucratic and the projects are very long term and boring. Definitely apply to Accenture LLP and not AFS if you are interested in a more fast pace and engaging work environment

    The best organization to work for

    Solutions Architect (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsTraining Opportunities
    Career Mobility
    Encouraging leadership
    Available senior technical career path
    A Network to find projects when one ended

    ConsFinancial growth beyond initial salary is more role change driven.
    Each project change is like finding a new job, sometimes challenging

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to somehow change the mindset that everyone in the organization is competing with themselves. Once once gets high enough that attitude relaxes. I found that if I wasn't angling for my next role upgrade, i was able to do my work well.
    The senior leadership do a great job in keeping everyone target oriented. It would be great if it percolated into the operational leadership at project level early in their careerr.

    Senior Manager, Level A

    Senior Manager (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsGood benefits, extremely smart hard working people, good reputation. Great customer relationship management training ground. Great place to learn to manage conservatively.

    ConsInternal relationships can trump performance. Technologically an average solution company because technologists are undervalued. More focused on avoiding missteps than delivering exceptional value.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmbrace more risk. Update the culture to reflect modern high performing technology delivery methods. Still stuck in old school delivery methodologies. Break out and draw more engineering talent as a result.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Smart, but competitive, people

    Senior Manager (Current Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsEveryone works hard and is very smart. This is a company full of Type A personalities and everyone is motivated to get work done.

    ConsSome people can be very competitive and there are some difficult people. However, how is that different than what you would have at any large firm?

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep providing more career opportunities to junior team members. Offer a longer maternity leave (Accenture offers 2 months paid and only guarantees job for 4 months, whereas competitors offer up to 6 months of paid maternity leave).
