    Former Employee - SME  in  Noida (India)
    Former Employee - SME in Noida (India)

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

    Pros

    Salary (If Negotiated Properly)
    Working Environment
    Facilities (Still maintaining minimum basic facilities required)

    All above Pro are for Accenture BPO India Delhi NCR

    Cons

    Shift timings (Mostly US- with no flexibility to get change in shift)
    Shift duration (9.30 hrs shift- It gives a feeling that recession is still on for Accenture )
    Management doesn't start to listen unless you drop your papers- once you drops paper they give you transition to avoid attrition with bond of one year from the date you land back in India.

    All above cons are for Accenture BPO India Delhi NCR

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

    Pros

    Besides being a Global Brand name, nothing great, as it has grown in size so has the employee dissatisfaction, while a person in Accenture UK works for 9 hours , in Accenture India employees are forced to work for minimum 10hours daily (Double Standards) !!!.
    They have thousands of policies and procedures to harass employees.
    Accenture hires a lot of fresh/ (Low cost Resources), to keep cost low.

    Cons

    Your ordeal begins From the day you join. They first hire people and then put them on bench saying that their are no openings for his skill. Then you might be asked to cross skill to a different technology and start from scratch, the ordeal doesnt end here, now you may be asked to relocate to a different city,
    I was surprised to see that they were hiring for the skills for which people were sitting on bench !!! Their is hardly any coordination between the HR/ management.

    You need a WBS(Charge code) for anything and everything, you need a notepad , you need to fill a form, email that , get that approved and what not.

    HR
    The HR is only for name sake, most of them sitting in a different city , you might work in noida and your HR in Banglore, if you are lucky and they are in the same city, they seldom hear you, even if you go to them with your grievances, dont expect them to help you coz only God knows what they remain busy with.

    WORK LIFE BALANCE
    You are supposed to work for over 10hrs a day, often extending you shift , working on weekends, working from home , and you dont get any comp. offs / over time for that . They dont even allow documenting that in your yearly appraisals as thats illegal !!!
    Hardly any good projects left in Accenture, most big projects have been lost to its competitors like wipro, Infy , HCL, thanks to its inefficient Sales teams and management.
    Most managers are self centered , only concerned about their promotions and hikes, while you work extra hours and not only do your work and your managers work, its the manager who ends up getting all the rewards and recognition.
    Lots if internal politics. The Senior managers/ DU leads talk big however their are no results.
    Ever since Accenture has grown big, the policies have become worse and more and more employee unfriendly. Even on bench you are supposed to do certifications, Take sessions.
    If you don't do that , you are threatened of poor ratings and being fired out of the company.
    Recently a female employee complained of being Harassed by her Team Lead and Manager , instead of taking action against the culprits, the female employee was fired, and the Team Lead and Manager still roam around freely working for this great company !!!!
    Good , Hard working people hardly have a chance in such unpro. environment.
    One of the AMs ,despite being a excellent performer has not got promoted since 4+ yrs, and has been shunted from Mumbai , NCR, Banglore.

    APPRAISALS
    The appraisals are hardly based on merit / performance , are based on managers whims and fancies. I have seen the most inefficient person getting promoted , when you ask them the reason , you are told about bell curves, and policies . (Management ploy to confuse you ). Dont expect over 7-8% hikes, The variable performance amount you actually get is only 50% of what is mentioned in your offer letterthough.
    Even the rewards and recognition are hardly given to the deserving candidates, mostly go to the people who are loyal to the managers.

    OVERALL
    Overall a Highly inefficient and unfriendly company to work . In the name of cost cutting they end up making the company extremely unfriendly for its employees.
    Employee satisfaction is lost in the maze of thousands of Policies ,Procedures and the Red Tape

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the company employee friendly, the way it was 5-6yrs ago., understand that employees are also human and treat them like one. While the upper management enjoys its perks , the employees who actually work get ill treated.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    For laterals they give good sum of money. Good working env. and lots of freindly people.

    Cons

    Accenture has a bad habit of taking projects by lowering its par. For no reason they have asked developers to stay up all night. Accenture higher management do not have capability to convience clients much to their side. When ever we have complained about ouur problem to leadership, they have "will-see" attitude which is kind of not satisfactory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Higher Management needs to find way to tackle problems between clients and its employee in a constuctive way.

    not many good development work in NCR region. Technical and non technical both type of employees have same set of targets, which is unfair.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If company want to move in Innovation, then management should treat technical guys differently.
