    I worked at Accenture full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The PEOPLE, culture, core values, competitive salaries and bonuses, benefits, 27 days PTO, great varying role opportunities, corporate citizenship... oh and did I say the amazing PEOPLE you'll learn from every day?!

    Cons

    80% travel in the Consulting workforce (which you know going into the job, but after a couple years this can get old). Also, depending on the project, you may be working 40 hr weeks or 80 hr weeks.... Cross your fingers the 80 hr weeks don't last 6+ months. Having said that, Leadership has implemented many flexible work schedule and strategic location initiatives to TRY to give people a better work-life balance.

    I worked at Accenture full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Training, career support through mentor-ships, Travel if you are in the consulting track, benefits, work-life balance. Excellent leadership with a clearly defined vision and strategy.

    Cons

    I worked within a small business unit that was acquired. Much of that leadership team was not aligned with the overall corporate culture and business approach. My advice would be to spend more effort on integration of soft skills and technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is only positive. Keep doing exactly what you are doing best. Delivering excellence in service to a global customer base with deep talent pools to achieve that mission. It was a pleasure to be a part of such a great corporate environment.

    I have been working at Accenture as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great potential for growth and movement. Recognition and responsibility are given and at an even at intern level I feel l have been able to make a measurable impact on product offerings. Direct

    Cons

    Lots of process and corporate bureaucracy. Every other word is often an acronym.

    Pros

    Uhhhh...if you're desperate for a paycheck.

    Cons

    Too many to list here. If you expect to be treated fairly, honestly, respectfully and if you expect something resembling a work-life balance, look elsewhere.

    Pros

    Great company culture, great time off, good stepping stone

    Cons

    You can get stuck in projects without opportunity to do meaningful work that's necessary for your annual review, the performance review process is very impersonal, and the career growth pattern is completely set in stone

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to keep the "People Development" aspect in mind for all levels below you

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Accenture is one of the most diverse and collaborative companies I've seen. On any given day I will be on the phone with professionals from Europe, Asia, South America, and Australia. Accenture is one of the most respected management consulting firms globally, and having your name on an Accenture business card immediately grants you a level of respect and recognition that goes beyond what an MBA from any university would.

    Accenture is the first place where I have been surrounded with colleagues and peers that I feel are as smart and motivated as I am, which is truly a refreshing change. I've had the opportunity to travel throughout Europe and India with the firm and have been offered the chance to work overseas.

    The benefits and comp are excellent, and there are practically infinite opportunities to move into different areas of the firm. Accenture encourages remote work, meaning when I am not on the road I work from home most days.

    Cons

    Accenture began as an SI firm, and our offerings into other competencies such as management consulting, BPO and AO came later. Because of the sheer scale of each of these offerings it is often difficult to define a cohesive go-to-market plan.

    Constant travel can wear you down, especially if you have a family. It's depressing when you realize that you know more about the concierge at the Westin than you do about your neighbors!!

    There are enough people at all levels that are willing and eager to put in 60-80 hour weeks that it's sometimes tough to strike a good work/life balance. Depending on the projects you end up staffed on the review process can either favor or hurt you irrespective of your contributions.

    Our bench is always super thin. Getting enough resources to staff projects is a constant headache.

    Our ads are super boring when compared to IBM's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase bench depth in key positions. Improve transparency in review process. Clarify our go-to-market strategies and marketing efforts, and try to go at least six months without a reorganization. :)
