    I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The people, and the interesting work. Six weeks of PTO a year, work life balance, people care about each other. I do work in the outsourcing part of Accenture. Competitive salaries.

    Cons

    Training is hard to come by. The project you work on is largely related to your happiness at the time -- the consulting part of the organization can be cutthroat.

    I worked at Accenture full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Incredible learning opportunities with several people who want to see you succeed. Work-life balance is a challenge with constant traveling but the travel perks are pretty great.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is hard to maintain; you really need to manage it yourself. Know where to draw the line and how to enforce it for yourself. Company values are great but definitely felt like with rapid growth, there were fewer people exemplifying the core values.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to your core values. Cultivate leaders who exemplify the values and are willing and have a desire to cultivate young talent.

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

    Pros

    The opportunity to learn politics as well as technical skills. The company makes a true effort to be accessible for the employee to get training through classes or networking.

    Cons

    Experienced hires have a disadvantage, as they are learning the culture as well as competing against well informed lifers. It is very important to latch on to someone who can show you the ropes on worklife balance, and navigating your career. If you don't fight for it you wont get it. Alignment to wrong division can really mess up your career growth. Promotion is very difficult and a crap shoot. it is all about ensuring that you have a good team supporting you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on finding a way to incorporate experienced hires. There should be a more extensive training for experienced hires on learning how to navigate their careers.

    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.

    Pros

    Accenture offers a wide variety of options for all their employees to grow and expand their knowledge. They focus on their employee's needs and make sure everyone has the right equipment for the position they are doing.

    Cons

    Hiring process took months, they go through a company called Hireright which is a complete joke and very rude when asking for additional information.

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

    Pros

    For the most part, people are valued and have the ability to speak up in the organization. Great collegial and teamwork culture.

    Cons

    Accenture is continuously evolving its model and in some groups things can tend to take on a more "industry" type look where it's not so much up or out. In those areas people can be complacent and lose their edge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep enforcing the feedback mechanisms that made the company great.
