I have been working at Accenture

Pros

Straight overtime for any hours worked over 40 each week.
I have an honest and candid relationship with my manager.
Great perks when traveling : hotel / airline points add up quickly.

Cons

Work / life balance while traveling is very difficult.
Sometimes politics can make people catty.
Expectation is to work as long as it takes to complete a task.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try not to place too much emphasis on perception, although that is easier said than done. Be honest with your employees about what you expect, and how they can improve.

    I have been working at Accenture

    Pros

    Accenture really is a great company to work for and they take their employee's adhearance to their core values seriously. They provide you with all the resources and training you need to do your job well, but you have to be willing to take the initiative and seek out knowledge and ways to optimize your performance. This is not a job in which you can just "coast" . Lots of opportunity for personal and professional growth if you are willing to put in the effort.

    Cons

    One word - travel. Life of a road warrior is hard. Better for singles or people who don't mind being away from home, and even then it can be challenging. Personal performance reviews depend a lot on what projects you get staffed on. High potential for 60+ hrs per week, but management is considerate of avoiding burn-out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more consious of evaluating and defining the project before committing to results. It can be difficult to deliver on value when you pull back the covers at a client's site and realize the effort to deliver was underestimated.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you start your career at Accenture, then you kind of get molded into it (cannot differentiate between right and wrong).

    Cons

    culture, project and skills matching abilities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to look in the culture of Accenture India Business. Straight forward people cannot sustain in the environment being nurtured there. To grow in Accenture one need not perform, but have GODFATHER who will take care of everything
