Incredible place to launch a career

Alliance Client Manager (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

I worked at Accenture full-time for more than 8 years

ProsVast opportunity for vertical and lateral promotion, valuable training - both classroom and on the job, interaction with senior client leaders in Fortune 500 companies, global exposure and opportunity to work in international locations

ConsLarge and getting larger - lose some of the personal touch, continuing to cut back on some benefits, experienced hires coming in are not the same caliber as those that are home grown (in some sense they are an accommodation to fuel the need for people), the higher you get in the firm the more work/stress involved

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to focus on and build people - these are your lifeblood

Work hard, play hard

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than 3 years

ProsYou get lots of PTO and work from home whenever you would like. Lots of happy hours.

ConsDepending on the time line of the project, can work long hard hours and Midnight on a Friday to test the systems in Production when going live.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore training is needed for new comers. Mainly you just thrown out there and you are expected to swim with the big fishes.
