A great place to work... perfection is on his way !

Manager (Current Employee)
Paris (France)

I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than 8 years

ProsIncome is good, career and performance management is key in the HR process, responsibilities are quickly given to employees all along their way, etc.

ConsIn the consulting workforce, the spirit is "up or out", which can be a problem after a while in the company. Even if you deliver good work, the company might tell you to leave in order to make room for younger...

Advice to Senior ManagementYou should give even more responsibilities to "middle management", for example by increasing their client exposure...

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