    I worked at Accenture full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working at Accenture was a very good experience. I worked there for 7 years when I was starting my career. Started as an Analyst in Finance and worked up to Manager. They do reward people who do good work.

    Cons

    Downside is that I never saw them fire anyone who was not pulling their weight.

    Pros

    Accenture has been named a great place to launch a career and rightly so. You will work hard, you will learn a lot and you will work alongside many talented people. And you will be prepared to grow your career whether internally or elsewhere.

    Cons

    There are lots of opportunities to achieve work/life balance such as working remotely, flexible schedules, etc. The flip side of that is that if you are not careful you may find yourself working any time and any place and it starts to feel like there is no balance at all.

    I have been working at Accenture (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, the work was very interesting and I got to try out many different things. I was lucky to get a good assignment for my first project.

    Cons

    The work wasn't the most interesting, but I manage to get through the day. Having a great team definitely helps.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing good things and finding great people. Ensure the highest quality of work and find customers who will appreciate that.

    Pros

    Smart people, decent work life balance, strong Columbus community. 16 weeks for moms, 2 weeks for dads. Potential for good experience and opportunities to grow.

    Cons

    Employees have an inconsistent experience with work/life balance and opportunities depending on what client/project you are on. Confusing organizational structure. Local Columbus Leadership team seems to truly care about Columbus employees and they are very smart.

    Advice to Management

    Keep striving to provide good opportunities for your people. Take time to thank the people on the ground that deliver all the contracts that you negotiate.

    Pros

    Accenture has some best process in implementing the technological solutions to client. transparent management brand value competitive salary

    Most of time you will be spending time implementing others solutions rather than you driving your own solution. Scope for innovation is very less in service based companies

    Pros

    Smart people. If you want to learn from a good group of people, this is the place. Always enough work to keep you going if you need a new project.

    Cons

    Low pay for the work and compared to other companies. Getting a good enough evaluation to warrant a raise or promotion was very competitive and generally was awarded based on tenure. As with any mega company, lots of red tape (training modules, etc)

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to make each project feel small since the company is so large.
