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

    Pros

    I enjoy working for Accenture because they are a growing strong company & a lot of present opportunities starting to become available to us employees if given the chances. Accenture offers cross training sessions for great performances within production of the clients. I would love to relocate through Accenture and remain with the company long term. I will continue to pray on it..

    Cons

    I have experienced no growth just being stagnant positioned on this 2nd platform, when inquiring about other positions there is no backing of support with consideration for us committed employees who are interested in crossing over to other platforms. There is a lot of passing the buck and shoving employees off to the next person, who are looking for help assistance and guidance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to lead by better example that the Town hall meetings conducts and discuss.
    Make Time for potential inquire employees who also looking for changes and flexibility.
    At Management Convenience they expect a lot from the employees, but the employees can't expect a lot from them.
    Get to know your employees better by interacting personally, not through the grapevine.

    I worked at Accenture full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    People. People. People.
    Varying opportunities.
    Ability to move up fast.
    Get to think - challenging business/IT problems to be solved with/for clients.

    Cons

    Travel. Travel. Travel.
    Continuing focus on margins putting too much work on the client/project executives.
    Pay is competitive vs. a premium for the long hours, travel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The consulting lifestyle needs a premium to offset the cons...just being 'at market' allows for top people to continue to leave.

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

    Pros

    Love the variety of work. Accenture does almost everything everywhere so you can move industries and learn new businesses. The company is full of smart people and good managers. The pay is great and the vacation time is amazing. Training is rigorous and management really invests in its people.

    Cons

    It is difficult to balance a family and the travel. If you don't want to travel, you are limited to the local opportunities, which may not be in line with your career aspirations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Programs, benefits and people. Overall Accenture tries really hard from a corporate standpoint to engage and keep their people.

    Cons

    What is frustrating is that the corporate line is rarely shared by the consulting management team...work/life balance and internal opportunities are closely guarded by deployed to entity management as well as consulting project teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow people to do their job, follow the corporate rules during consulting engagements!
