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

    Pros

    It has been a very positive experience working for Accenture. It is critical for me to know I am working for and promoting a highly reputable organization built on integrity, leading technology with a solid financial base. One thing I have noticed is the longevity of the employees; senior managers and others who have spent their entire career life with Accenture since graduating college. I have found that Accenture offers many careers for new grads and experienced professionals who are interested in joining strong teams, learning in a dynamic environment and thriving on challenge. Accenture provides an environment where people leverage their skills, talents, experience and interests to grow professionally and build rewarding careers.

    Cons

    It is an ever changing environment with regualr updates to systems, technology and refining processes. There will never be a typical day at Accenture, but that’s why people love it here! The opportunities to make a difference within exciting client initiatives are unlimited in the ever-changing digital landscape.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When possible, provide more advance warning when process and systems are going to be changing. Giving more time to prepare and train.

    I worked at Accenture

    Pros

    The level of talent at Accenture is outstanding. The opportunities most individuals are afforded are incredible. Generally speaking the pay is good for roles throughout ones career. Clients are demanding, but that only allows for one to achieve at higher levels and many times beyond what one believes. There are so many top notch leaders at Accenture that provides a fruitful environment for younger employees to be mentored by some of the best in the consulting industry.

    Cons

    Hard charging environment that does challenge the work life balance. The up or out mentality of many groups may not be a good fit for all individuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to ensure client's current and future needs drive investment decisions, both financial and talent resources.

    I worked at Accenture full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people always willing to help. Team spirit. Lots of fun outside of work, from having breakfast with a friend on the team to project outings. The training I received was excellent. I learned so much in such a short time, I understand why Accenture doesn't seem interested in its employees earning advanced degrees. You learn more on the job. I loved my years at Accenture and wouldn't trade them for anything.

    Cons

    I hated the tools such as the performance management tool. Too complicated and time consuming. A necessary evil though. I also found it difficult to get my arms around the culture and processes as an experienced hire. Everyone else always seemed to know what they were doing and I felt lost, especially at the beginning. I do know people who managed to achieve very satisfactory work/life balance but I think it is a big challenge. The workload can be grueling and some project managers could use a chill pill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to work on integrating experienced hires and their utilization. This will always be hard because Accenture is an army of young recruits.

    Pros

    Huge opportunities provided for gaining ever-increasing responsibilities with clear opportunities to gain a diverse range of experiences across a broad spectrum of industries. A great place to rapidly develop during the early phases of your career.

    Cons

    Sink or swim model. Not a problem for me as the expectations that it is a meritocracy were clearly set and fairly managed. People just need to know that the expectation is that you do not remain static, but that you continuously look to develop and stretch yourself. So it can be quite demanding, but in return you gain major experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Aim to set more realistic timelines at the outset of major projects.
