    Pros

    Easy to grow your network and meet people from very different industries. Great to gather expertise and experience in all kinds of areas for technology and management.

    Cons

    Compensation is not great at the beginning but gets better after time and good performance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be an outlook to changes in salary due to performance. Also more information about how to improve personal productivity with office and other tools would be great.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time

    Pros

    There are great people at Accenture, who focus on developing the new and experienced hires in the company. These individuals are established internally and at the clients, and help junior employees develop these same relationships. The company has many upward opportunities as it continues to evolve.

    Cons

    Consulting work comes with disadvantages, such as long hours. However, if you do the right thing for you client, your team / yourself, and the company, things tend to balance out over a long-term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership and organizational changes could be communicated initially with more empathy to impact. Sometimes this comes across as an afterthought after the initial communication, even if that is not the intent.

    Pros

    I have always loved with Accenture. The coworkers are spectacular. They are all very bright, and extremely pleasant to work with (like a big family).
    Pay and benefits are also good.

    Cons

    You are expected to go the extra mile to succeed.
    You are expected to travel a lot.
    Promotion process is not very transparent and sometimes seems random.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Convey your strategy more clearly. Growth alone is not a strategy.

    Pros

    Leadership takes the time to get to know you on a personal level and really coach you through the different levels of the organization.

    Cons

    The travel can be difficult, and quickly changing project conditions can require long hours or alterations to plans you've made in your personal life.

    Current Employee - Technology Consulting Manager

    I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, flexibility, countless job opportunities if you are willing to travel, honest leadership. Training is available in nearly any technology. Huge pool of people and resources to pull from if you need help. Responsiveness is part of the culture for the most part.

    Cons

    Everything depends on where you are staffed. Work-life balance is a struggle because of competitive laddering and "up or out" model. You will eventually be expected to travel unless you happen to live in a location where there is a large number of clients in your specialty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide language courses for better global communication. More work evaluating expectations at the executive level to increase the number of working parents (and yes, especially women) at the top.

    Support resources being moved from one delivery center to another country's delivery center instead of the resource having to resign from Accenture
