Pros

The brand is growing, and the opportunities for advancement are out there if you want them, whereas you can pursue the Career Expert model if you prefer to focus on delivery

Cons

There is still favor given to those who work on extremely large projects for long periods, and it is difficult for people who change clients a lot to develop strong mentor ship relationships with senior leadership

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Build more consistent ways for the contributions of consultants who shift from project to project to be recognized and rewarded in the annual performance process, and work to help them develop career enhancing relationships with Senior Executives.

    Pros

    Great people, good knowledge capital, good opportunities to create network and reputation. Open and transparent performance appraisal system. People development is critical: both your own and others.

    Cons

    Large organization, can take time to navigate especially as an experienced hire. Many checks and balances are in place for good reason - this can come across as bureaucratic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the evolution of management consulting, cultivate the entrepreneurial spirit within the organization. Find new ways to retain the best people.

    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.
