    Pros

    Great training, opportunities and highliy motivated and (usually) intelligent people. Broad experiences with great mentors and support in your career development. Up to date technology, great industry experience and leading edge practice. Accenture are not scared to throw you in the deep end and its sink or swim!

    Cons

    Worklife balance is always a concern, but if you work hard and are passionate you are rewarded. Some people become disillusioned due to mismatching expectations, make sure you communicate yours clearly!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the support of your people, keep up the passion for delivery and remember to mentor the next generation.

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

    Pros

    This is an amazing company and is operated like a well oiled machine. I enjoyed working here and people are very helpful. I could reach out to any expert in the company when needed. They offer numerous training programs for professional development. Once can build a very good network with professionals and clients. This company provided me opportunities to work on very challenging and interesting projects. Leaders are meticulous and focused on the job at hand - client delivery and business growth. They encourage the individuals on the team to do well and support them. Accenture follows a detailed fair evaluation process to assess the performance of an individual. Promotions are based meritocracy.

    Cons

    Travel and Work Life Balance

    Pros

    Flexibility to do my work remotely. Change is constant; new opportunities are available frequently. You can usually find new challenges to fit your goals.

    Cons

    24/7 clock is challenging some days as it blurs the line between work/life balance. Still, the flexibility the role provides outweighs drawbacks of the extra long days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in your people.

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

    Pros

    Interesting work
    Flexible Travel arrangement
    Possibilities to work from home

    Sometimes:
    Good Work-life balance
    Good teammates
    Easy time finding projects

    Cons

    Some of the best Accenture has to offer is heavily dependent on being in the right practice and also meeting the right group of people. In that sense its hit or miss.

    I also found it very difficult to transfer offices.
