    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update your Scifs with windows, and light so people don't feel like they're in a cage. In addition if it's possible to have an onsight kitchen that would be helpful.

    Strong management in some areas. Other individual projects and small engagements have varied management styles. Newly promoted managers can be inexperienced with managing people.

    Current Employee - Senior Manager in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Senior Manager in New York, NY

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Highly process-focused, matrixed and hierarchical organization built on respected principals and deep capabilities across virtually every area of service and country on the globe.

    Cons

    Continuous focus on and expectation around individual and team high performance translates to long, intense hours (often short-handed) and focus on quarterly earnings to meet sales and margin targets. Personal and operational goals don't always translate to advancement and there is an unwritten understanding of '5 years up or out' to partner if you are an experienced hire. The 'laddering' process (ranking of peers within a practice) can be subjective and there are limits to upward mobility beyond the senior manager level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tougher 'people developer' standards are needed for senior practice leadership (managing directors and above) and alternative opportunities for advancement, in general, other than subject matter specialist track. Otherwise, the organization will continue to bleed talent.
