    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.

    I have been working at Accenture (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Good benefits (dental, health, vision plus a bunch of ancillary others) - High caliber and talented individuals - Company lives up to Core Values - Amazing flexibility, if you manage expectations and perform above and beyond - Limited hierarchy with lots of organizational support (Career Councilor, Management) - Advancements are mostly based on merit and not who you know - Autonomy and ability to grow - An abundance of training outside of direct role - Constant change, new roles/clients/peers (could be a con to some)

    Cons

    - No benefit really from continuing higher education (might be a pro to some); A BA will get you to the Senior Manager level - Travel, a lot (although initiatives are in place to keep talent local it is still driven by business demand) - Placed into high expectation roles and immediately expected to perform, even though sometimes the role is ambiguous and defined by time - Late hours on projects, especially if you have a demanding client

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving to a local staffing model. When we perform solidly for the year bonuses should reflect the overall firm performance.

    Pros

    Many opportunities to learn what you want to learn Fantastic people and lots of social gatherings, happy hours, events and trainings Good work-life balance Team feels like family, even closer than family at times Competitive salaries Generous PTO and maternity/paternity leave Ability to adapt to changing times and competition with other companies

    Cons

    I work for the Federal side and the hours are great, but I hear if you work non-Federal, the hours and travel can be draining. Some people love it though, it's just a matter of preference.

    Advice to Management

    Keep treating us the way you do.
