    I worked at Accenture full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If traveling 4 days a week is not an issue with your life situation, Accenture is a great place to work - good exposure, training, skills building, salary and perks

    Cons

    Traveling must unless you get lucked out with a near-location project, but you are expected to travel

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build project search and allocation capabilities based on proximity of consultant to client location - this will build the value proposition for the client by reducing the overall cost , and add improves the work life balance for the consultant.

    Good place to start my career

    Current Employee - Associate Software Engineer in Florham Park, NJ
    Current Employee - Associate Software Engineer in Florham Park, NJ

    I have been working at Accenture

    Pros

    Great people, interesting projects, good corporate culture. It is a good place to work overall. It's especially a good place to start a career since the name and brand of Accenture is so widely known. I don't work there anymore but people still KNOW who Accenture is if I mention the company.

    Cons

    Working for Solutions, I'd say that the salary was not very good. I left to make ends meet a little more. Consulting gets higher salaries and if I had to do it all over again, that's the division I'd apply for. Your experience at Accenture depends highly on the project. You could end up thinking Accenture is a horrible place to work because you put in 17 hour days or that it's a great place because you work 8 hour days. I had both experiences while working there...once even working until 2am 4 days straight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Equalize pay between work streams,

    I have been working at Accenture

    Pros

    1. Fantastic leadership talent and very smart people all around
    2. Tremendous training at all levels including partners - they have a full fledged University near Chicago IL with 5 star dining facilities.
    3. You are actually penalized if you don't complete trainings on time !! a great way to ensure employees take full benefits of their billion dollar annual training spend.
    4. an inherent sense of deep pride in employees onsite/offshore
    5. Absolutely no comaprison with offshore pureplays (where I worked before) on brand, processes, comp and talent

    Cons

    1. Large global firm but very well managed
    2. Processes are "designed" to engage and win large complex deals so takes some time to engineer them downwards for smaller deals but can be done with some effort/learning
    3. Very difficult to work for pureplays after working here. Extremely choosy employer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More networking events with senior management would help better integration
    More Senior Executive /Partner promotions a must to retain talent.
