    I worked at Accenture

    Pros

    There is definitely brand recognition in working for Accenture. It's the largest consulting firm in the world, so people have heard of them. (Besides, who could miss the Tiger ads plastered all over every apirport.) One person who posted mentioned that they got 6 years of experience in 3 years at the company. That's probably true. There's a wide range of clients and experiences to have at the company. In my 20 months with the firm, I worked on 6 projects at 6 different clients, all in different industries. That's not something that you're going to get in any other industry job.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance? What's that? There pretty much isn't such a thing as work/life balance at Accenture. It's all about "productivity numbers" which is basically the number of hours you are chargeable to the client in any given week, out of 40. So it is possible to have chargeablility greater than 100%, e.g., you work on client material for 50 hours, and your chargeablility would be 125% (50/40 = 1.25) But for the firm, it's all about chargeablility. In some instances, I think the drive to get high productivity drives unethical behavior. I've seen people charge in hours spent at team dinners that didn't have the client present just because it was "work related."

    I felt like a jack of all trades, master of none at this company. Frequently, they put people in roles they are not qualified to fill. This also borders on unethical because as consultants, our job is to come in as the experts, but when we know less than the client about a particular software or issue, that can't be a good situation. Many "experts" are nothing more than experts at Googling for solutions to a particular issue, having no real expertise in the matter at all. Again, this placement in a particular role goes back to the productivity issue. The firm wants people to charge hours to a client even if it means charging 40-80 hours of time spent "researching" something on Google. If it didn't cost companies so much money, it would almost be laughable.

    The pay isn't that great. When I entered, I was told that Consultants were paid significantly more than their "industry" counterparts. Thanks to Glassdoor, I'm not sure that's the case any more. I think people in industry can easily be paid 20-30% more than Accenture employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to genuinely care about people. The emphasis on productivity is ridiculous and turns us from people into machines.

    Also, there's too much secrecy and too little transparency.
