    Well managed for a large consulting company

    Senior Manager (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsWell managed at the top, good career growth, ample PTO, challenging career opportunities, overall a great work environment

    ConsLeadership can be lacking at mid tier levels, highly competitive culture creates lack of team environment among peers at times

    Advice to Senior ManagementFor a larger global co with the focus on shareholder view, Accenture does a good job of balancing employee retention. Don't cut too much and continue to focus on longer term growth

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

    Pretty great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

    A Mixed Experience

    Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsOpportunities to get on many different types of projects
    Surrounded by high quality people
    Generous amount of PTO

    ConsLittle autonomy over staffing decisions
    Networking is a must; I often feel like a slacker if I choose not to attend all the extracurricular events

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt is easy for consultants to suffer an identity crisis-- always being surrounded by the client, it's easy to forget that we actually work for Accenture.

    Outstanding company, especially for veterans

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee)

    ProsExtremely good benefits and technology. Offices are outstanding. Probably the most military and veteran friendly company that I've ever heard of. Very good and active alumni organization.

    ConsNot a lot of training resources besides some really old CBTs. Very little budget for training. ACN doesn't reimburse for cell phones for non-management people, even though that's your primary work phone. "Up or out" program on the consulting side.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in serious training.
