Pros

Accenture is one of the 500 lb gorillas in the industry. There are virtually no doors that can't be opened using the Accenture name. Accenture is focused on delivering the very best work and results possible for clients. The networking opportunities are excellent as well across multiple industries.

Cons

Accenture is very much a connected and networked environment. Joining Accenture as an experienced professional is often very challenging. With such a short runway, it's often difficult to get up to speed and produce quickly. Lots of midnight oil is required to be successful the first year in the firm.

Advice to Management

Accenture has some of the best and brightest people I have ever had the experience to engage as colleagues. The biggest challenge is finding ways to promote individuals who are constrained by the pyramid of levels (moving many people from one level to another when only a couple slots exist).

    Pros

    -Challenging and interesting work (other companies wouldn't hire Accenture if they could fix it themselves) -Great benefits and compensation package -Great people to work with -Very well explained and understood laddering system and general time frame for promotion -Great learning resources

    Cons

    -Long hours, expect some days where you may put in overtime -Sometimes reporting overtime is discouraged so as not to exceed a project budget -Flying every week or every other week is sometimes the norm, even as an analyst

    Advice to Management

    -Let your employees take time off when they need a day -Allow more work from home opportunities for those that travel frequently -Don't outsource so much to India when it requires a lot of time, late night/early morning phone calls, hand holding, and sometimes produces inferior results due to a language/culture gap and unexpected leaving of employees. Develop a larger and more skilled workforce in the U.S. and local countries to take care of those additional responsibilities without all the headache.
