    I have been working at Accenture as a contractor

    Pros

    It is a real global company. No matter where you are located, you will always work with professionals from multiple countries/cultures. Working and learning with the best professionals

    Cons

    It is very industry specific. Also, working methods and policies are very meticulous ("Accenture way")

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should be able to better manage the pressure (tight timelines, high level of performance). No real filter in trying to avoid that pressure to come down to more junior people.

    Cons

    -Tough working horus depending offices; e.g. Japan and Korea office tend to work long hours but not for Australia office.
    - Difficult to develop specialieis; The comoany do not care much about what we wanna do, but assign to any availble projects. In other words, anyone can do this job...

    I worked at Accenture full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Lots of opportunities to learn, hone your technology skills and develop leadership skills

    Cons

    - Poor career progression / compensation below market standards unless you are a part of the consulting workforce
    - Disappointing performance management process. Currently one stands to lose unless they have the loudest manager in the room
    - Work life balance is an issue in most projects
    - Performance review process is used to settle scores by some managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees need a clear direction on where the organization is headed. Need managers who embody the core values, especially "respect for an individual"
