Good experience so far

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsCame in as an experienced hire in Oct 2010. Impressed with ACN's training, client base, and coworkers.Lots of interesting projects in my industry and specialization. Great pipeline of work. Most importantly, I feel that by working hard and smart, by networking, and through a little luck, the opportunity for advancement is high.I didn't feel like this in industry.

ConsFor me, nearly non-stop travel. Grinding stretches of long days, especially if there's an offshore team in the mix (5, 6AM calls, then onsite client work, then calls again till 10, 11PM). Tough to take time off as needed. Project management and client contacts can make your engagement fall along the continuum of "excellent and highly engaged" to "grin and bear it." Cliques of employees who have been at the firm for a while. None of this should be a surprise to anyone in consulting.

Advice to Senior ManagementI'm happy with the experience and am getting out of it what I hoped for. Proud to work here.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A mixed bag

    Specialist (Former Employee) Irving, TX

    I worked at Accenture

    Pros: Compensation is good. As an "experienced hire," I came in as a specialist/ consultant at the equivalent of a manager's salary in the industry.… Cons: If you don't have a college degree or even if you do but aren't in the consulting organization, opportunities for advancement are limited.
