    Mixed Feelings

    I have been working at Accenture

    Pros

    People are really great and friendly, but it depends a lot on your experience. Workday practice hasn't sold anything in 6 months.

    Cons

    Ratings don't always reflect people's potentials and are largely political/dependent on your project. Not a true meritocracy.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time

    Pros

    It's a great first company to work for, and if you find a gangbusters team, stick with and make your career. If the stars align and have a proper support network, you are able to move around from project to project to get new experiences.

    Cons

    *It is possible to get stuck on a project for an extended period of time without any choice rather than to leave the company. This hasn't happened to me, but many of my peers have churned due to the feeling of being trapped.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For those projects that tend to be black holes, focus on how the teams can be encouraged and engaged across an account or even between project teams.

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

    Pros

    Great people, work hard /play hard mentality, career progression (you are responsible for your own career - you can take it down whatever path you choose). Plenty of opportunities to network, and for the federal practice - not much travel.

    Cons

    There is a decent amount of bureaucracy, working with the government can be akin to pulling teeth, easy to get lost in a large firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase compensation, decrease amount of useless trainings

    Pros

    Benefits
    Vacation days are more than other companies.
    Coworkers are always cooperative and friendly.

    Cons

    Upper Management not always in a mood to listen new ideas, is like trying to teach an old dog new trick

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen, be open and receptive to new/fresh ideas and do not refuse them just because you don't know about such technology or you always did something in the "as usual" way

    Great place to work

    I worked at Accenture

    Pros

    Very good work environment. Have lots of onshore opportunities if you are a top performer. If you are into IT then this place is the best place to kick start your career.

    Cons

    Pay here is a litle less. But hardly matters once you start growing in the company. So growth is a very important factor like anywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None

    Pros

    The best thing is the people and compensation. You will get A-1 training.Travel to chicago and get to experience many cultural experiences.

    Cons

    You have to travel and building a family may be difficult. The rating process is not favorable but strive to do your best and you will succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be Fair! Coach your employees to be the best they can be. Provide them with opportunities to grow.
