    Pros

    A lot of training and skill development, wide variety of projects and opportunities, great people, great benefits, a very engaged culture

    Cons

    Huge company that can be be a little too convoluted, especially when just starting out. On-boarding process was a little sloppy.

    Advice to Management

    I don't have any advice to management. I think Accenture is a great company. Accenture is growing successfully, and with such growth and size, a company like Accenture is bound to have some difficulties within its hiring and training processes. But nothing at Accenture is that bad.

    Pros

    I came in as an experienced hire and immediately witnessed how Accenture focuses on their employees. Mandatory two day training following by more intensive role specific training helped to give me solid footing in my new position. They really impart how important core values are through every aspect of training and day to day operations. I was very impressed with the amount of knowledge available and how everyone is encouraged to leverage it and contribute. I highly recommend exploring Accenture as an employer and have referred several friends to work there.

    Cons

    No company is perfect and Accenture is no exception. One of the few cons I can think of is the sheer volume of information can sometimes be overwhelming. However, during my short year or so with the company, I saw several improvements in the way in which this information was presented as well as increased focus on collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    Continue focus on core values. I think that's hugely important and has been a recipe for success for Accenture.
