Pros – I worked in Accenture Federal Services, and most of the group is in Balitimore.
Senior Management is detached and aloof, so for the most part they leave you alone.
A good percentage of the technical staff, people writing code or doing system deployments, is helpful and friendly.
Cons – I worked first in Avanade, Accenture's wholly owned subsidiary.
When hired in, the recruiter promised me 12 - 16% bonus at end of year. Though my chargeability numbers and customer satisfaction numbers were great, I got less than 3% bonus.
The program managers are extremely non-technical and try to treat consultants and systems engineers poorly.
They tell you that you'll travel 80% of time, but really you'll travel over 100% of time if you consider that you'll do some weekend work (at a customer site) and then get no comp time for that weekend work.
There was absolutely no training or career development opportunities.
Advice to Senior Management – Hire qualified program managers. Make Senior Managers be more involved and accountable, too.
Focus more on career development for folks doing the actual heavy lifting.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
