    I worked at Accenture as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Even though the company is very large, they make it seem small with the efficiency and kindness of the employees.

    Cons

    Lots of movement in the office. Dead time was common among the staff in the IT support area. This may have only been a seasonal thing too, being that it was summer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for making new employees welcome.

    I worked at Accenture full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Love the variety of work. Accenture does almost everything everywhere so you can move industries and learn new businesses. The company is full of smart people and good managers. The pay is great and the vacation time is amazing. Training is rigorous and management really invests in its people.

    Cons

    It is difficult to balance a family and the travel. If you don't want to travel, you are limited to the local opportunities, which may not be in line with your career aspirations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Great coworkers and supervisors who are willing to help you adjust and provide support, but who will also challenge you and stretch your thinking

    Cons

    Long hours, but this ebbs and lows depending on the project or even depending on the point in time within a project

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should provide better training on various internal resources

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility to do my work remotely. Change is constant; new opportunities are available frequently. You can usually find new challenges to fit your goals.

    Cons

    24/7 clock is challenging some days as it blurs the line between work/life balance. Still, the flexibility the role provides outweighs drawbacks of the extra long days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in your people.

    Pros

    you get to travel to other cities for a role.

    Cons

    Without any proper training, you will be thrown to the client and left there until you figure it out. Or until the client figures out that you don't know anything about what your company claimed you knew to the client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mean it when you say you invest in your people. I have been working here for 4 years and never given any training aside from St. Charles drinking lesson.

    Pros

    Ethical Company. Solid customer base.

    Cons

    Less classroom training for senior management. The firm has grown up significantly so it needs a little more clean up of dead woods.

    Take care of people who's our asset.

    You can literally learn how to do just about anything. If you want to acquire new skills, training opportunities are limitless.

    Sometime of the consulting assignments require a great deal of travel which can be hard on work/life balance. Overall, the experience is well worth it though.
