I worked at Accenture

Pros

A lot of convoluted knowledge in their lame knowledge exchange system but nevertheless, it can all be very useful. Training is great, coworkers have excellent persona's and group work ethics.

Cons

Bad salaries, even at higher management levels ($40000 MXN for a manager, wtf?). Projects are planned haphazardly and without metrics. Exact information is very hard to find.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Salaries need to increase by about 30% to be competitive and support the long hours of work. Current salaries in other companies are about the same in a 9 to 5 job. Analysts and consultants need some spare time to learn more about the business at hand.

    I have been working at Accenture

    Pros

    * Career development
    * Colleagues are generally nice people
    * Great management who leads by example and are willing to help out as long as its aligned with their interests (i guess both pro/con)

    Cons

    * Not much room for true creativity since everything is process based and no one wants to take a risk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer a higher level of flexibility in peoples careers. Offer a higher level of flexibility in both subject and geographic flexibility.
