    I worked at Accenture full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good work culture
    Exposure to one of the biggest consulting firm and how it works
    Some projects are very very good with real opportunities

    Cons

    This is specific to India
    1) A lot of regional politics happening (Telugu guy promoting telugu guy etc. Specially in Hyderabad)
    2) Moderation process is flawed as it fails to capture authenticity of supervisor's feedback on employee. Supervisors are taking advantage and shelling out personal grudges. This has lead to an environment where ass-lickers succeed whereas the people who are actually completing the projects and racking in money for accenture are getting ignored. Result - They leave the company eventually (Have tons of examples in Hyderabad)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please introduce reverse feedback so that a supervisor's authenticity can be gauged. i.e. to make sure he is not taking out personal grudge from his sub-ordinates and is judging solely on grounds of professionalism.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Accenture is truly a global giant, the opportunities in the firm are tremendous and you get exposure to so many intellectual individuals. Learning never stops at Accenture and that what I love the best. In the 5 years, I've spent in the firm, I've learnt a hell lot! thanks to all the fantastic online courses and classroom training sessions arranged. The variety of projects you get to work on is also amazing! All you need is the zeal to put in hard work, some long hours (at least initially) and curiosity. The leadership is excellent, very approachable, always listening to employees and making changes on the fly!

    Cons

    - Long work hours
    - Difficult to navigate sometimes across teams as there are so many (even after spending so much time, I keep discovering new stuff)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Focus more on work/live balance, although there are a number of programs in the firm, we tend to loose sight in order to please a client. Overall, fantastic leaders though, very focused, razor sharp!

    I worked at Accenture full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Accenture has a comparatively better salary for starters.
    Hikes were better than the market.
    It was more Employee Friendly

    Cons

    The Management is only considering their profit.
    Almost nothing is transferred to the Employees.
    Policies are getting worse, more like an Indian Mnc.
    Moderations are not centralised, its completely dependant in Project. If project changes during Moderation, nobody accepts you as a responsibility, instead a liability..
    3 Months Notice Period is a complete waste for Employee as well as Accenture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make Moderations centralised.
    Instead of hiring new employees at higher salary, try to retain your own employees first. This would save a lot if time, effort and some money also.
    Transfer at least some profit to employees.

    I worked at Accenture full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Honestly speaking, I did not experience any pros while working in Accenture Hyderabad.

    Cons

    1) Employee feedback is of no importance to the management.
    2) Management brings personal grudges in professional work, and they use them against the employees, and they retort to activities like threatening the employees, when their decisions are questioned.
    3) Project HRs do not support the employee in times of need, they only support the management.
    4) My project management didn't care a bit about their employee's career/professional/personal growth.
    5) Work Life balance was completely destroyed.
    6) Work is not appreciated, mostly personal relations with the management decide the employee's rating (hence promotion) given by the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take care of the management teams in the projects, as most of the employee issues are hidden and curbed inside the project, and even after giving some feedback, the project management screws the employee only

    I worked at Accenture full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good work life balance
    No work pressure

    Cons

    Not good for freshers(especially if they get development skill)
    All good parts depend on project you are working on, It may become hell if you don't get a good project

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please assign work on the basis of skills in which you train a fresher for 3 months.
    Don't train on random basis.
    Revise selection process and salary for freshers.
