I worked at Accenture

Pros

Salary is better or on par with similar companies.
Work environment is fine.

Cons

The problem is at the beginning only, you don't get to choose your domain or work location, its really a problem if you want to work on a domain of your interest.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to assign domains based on candidate's choice or if possible potential. though a tedious process it will improve the productivity.

  1.  

    Okay place to start a career, but very draining due to long hours with average compensation.

    I have been working at Accenture

    Pros

    Good place to start an IT career after college
    Decent Learning/Training opportunities available

    Cons

    Long Hours
    Average Compensation
    Highly Competitive, mostly due to an unnecessarily complex and subjective annual review process
    Very little delivery structure on most projects
    No sense of a work community, since the company is so large and most work is on the client site
    Overall, not a great place for a career, but a decent place to work for 1-2 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adhere to Accenture Delivery Methods more on project sites so that the processes are more repeatable.

    Focus on your employees more, most everyone I know at Accenture is unhappy with their job because they're overworked.

    I worked at Accenture

    Pros

    Good level of training.
    Some smart people.
    Medium level travel.
    Massive network.
    Cultural diversity.
    Some sr. mgmt people are open to discussion.

    Cons

    My way or the high way attitude.
    No focus on work life balance.
    Very poor performance reviews.
    A lot of dumb people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set up a system to reward people based on performance and meritocracy. The current system of performance reviews and promotions based on discussions is absolute crap. Be more considerate!
