Pros

Large network of people and available employee discounts, contact, etc.

Cons

Unless you are the bench-warmers, new grads with little skills, the experienced tend to work 50-60 work weeks in order to meet deadlines.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't keep those unskilled bench-sitters on the payroll, get people with real skills and allow the hard workers a little break (no more 50-60 hours work week)

    Pros

    Good Package, great work culture, some teams allow work from home, good learning curve, you don't get fired easily - once you get hired you can stay in the company till you retire :). Leaves are granted quite easily without haggling.

    Cons

    Bad work life balance, work pressure can be very taxing, opportunities might depend on your luck more than you capability, mediocre level of office politics, although the company is flat but progression from one level to the other is very slow and time bound. Lastly the office culture is very dead, boring and lacks liveliness. Tea and lunch conversations are also restricted to work and it can get depressing at times. Also the office parties are very badly funded and boring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Urgent need to review the GTIN model for the following criteria:
    1. Opportunities - GTIN doesnt win any business or projects it depends on the rest of Accenture for staffing and hence the quality of work coming to GTIN can suffer
    2. Recognition - Since the GTIN leadership is disconnected with the leadership of the projects we work on (mostly overseas), there is minimal visibility of performance to local leadership. This leads to lack of representation and appreciation especially during moderations.
    3. Accenture as a whole as a very weak HR. The HR policies are completely disconnected with the senior managements expectations. Most of the SMs themselves disapprove of the HR policies and processes. Lastly the HR does nothing to make sure their processes are practical and workable

    Pros

    Accenture is a well known consulting firm and it looks very good when you have this on your resume. The work/life balance here was great and it was flexible work schedule as long as you completed your hours for the 2 week period.

    Cons

    Very difficult to get promoted unless the managers really like, and you go out to lunch with them or go above and beyond expectations on the project. At the end of the day it's not worth putting all that work for an 5-8% increase in salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a way to change the promotion process otherwise Accenture will continue to lose good people to competitors. Provide more feedback to employees on what they can do in order to advance to the next level.
