Pros

Everyone from Analyst to Manager are pretty young and they're great people to work with. Accenture really hires the best people. The work can vary from project to project, the salary is competitive, and there's lots of room to move around.

Cons

It's a huge company so it's hard to understand your place in the grand scheme. There's also a lot of red tape for simple things.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure your analysts know what going on. It will help productivity, especially if there aren't a lot of other analysts on the team.

    Pros

    The benefits at Accenture are pretty solid. They are willing to let you transfer just about anywhere within the company and use their size to get pretty good benefits packages.

    Cons

    Accenture is a large company and, as such, they can be out of touch with the needs of their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more proactive. It's not possible to keep everyone happy, but there are things that can be done to protect yourself from losing your most valuable asset (your people). If your people are looking around at other openings, there is probably something wrong with what you are doing.

    Pros

    You can literally consult on anything you want. Accenture has experts in every facet of business and IT. Great place to learn and apply new skills. Up or out career model provides great opportunity for advancement. You can also live just about anywhere in the country which is great if you are young. I have lived in 3 cities since joining. TIP: don't get bored. If you don't like your specialty, request a transfer to a new one.

    Cons

    The annual review process is very political and biased. I know great workers who get stuck at their same level for years while mediocre workers are getting promoted because they happened into the better network. Work/life balance is pretty terrible. Work hours can be very long and most travel 100%. The pay is lower here compared to other consulting companies unless you come out of a strong MBA program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the performance review process. It is broken.
