    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When a project is underbid, management needs to be more proactive and willing to step in and address with the client - as opposed to just expecting the team to work 24/7 to get it done anyway. While we don't usually mind working hard - when it happens over and over, the people do burn out.

    I have been working at Accenture

    Pros

    Accenture has a great group of people that are easy to work with and they are very willing to work with you in taking time off and getting extra perks on the job.

    Cons

    Just like all consulting firms, you will have to work during some times very long hours. Also, I would say the 'typical' week is never less than 50-60 hours in my experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The main piece of advice that management at Accenture should know is to NEVER underestimate how knowledgeable the people below you are, always trust their advice as they are people that are in the 'mud' every day.
