    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

    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.

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

    Pros

    Always learning and challenging yourself Ability to explore different roles Opportunity to travel The people I work with are amazing/great company culture Lots of opportunity to grow Opportunities to expose yourself to upper management Accenture branding on the resume

    Cons

    Very large company that you can get lost in Performance competitive environment Have reduced the ability for analyst to venture into different industries, limiting what roles you can take Limited where you can take roles as an analyst. Company is making it really hard for those who want to travel to travel. If there is a local role, any role, they expect you to consider it even if it isnt a good fit to your career goals

    Advice to Management

    The keypoints of why I joined this company was the promise from recruiters of getting the opportunity to try different roles in different industries. While I completely understand the need to push specialization I dont agree with the mix messaging sent to young college graduates.

    Pros

    Great advancement through early years (Analyst through Manager). Excellent benefits and bonus structure for high-performers.

    Cons

    Challenging promotion process past Senior Manager level. Must meet several sales and performance criteria. In addition, must earn the support of other senior Managing Directors, which have their own agenda for supporting the candidate.

    Advice to Management

    Establish firm process for career advancement at senior levels (e.g. Sr Mgr). Hold MDs accountable for developing people, not just to advance their own agenda.
