I have been working at Accenture

Pros

it is a fun company to work for. All of the people are really nice, kind, and cool. I have made a tremendous about of contacts in Accenture. My relationships have helped me advance my career. To be frank, the company was better when it was a true partnership. Those are the days that I really miss. I was hoping that accenture would go private again, but I don't think that will happen while I am still employed there. It hink is someone picks Accenture to start their career, they will be very happy. It is a great place to begin.

Cons

There is a lot of politics. It is tough to manage everyones expectations. I sometimes wonder how they get anything done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep focusing on the people. It is not about the dollars, but about the people managing the work and the pipeline. Make sure you always treat your people fair. Always respect the work they do. They are the ones that keep you in business.

    I worked at Accenture

    Pros

    The consulting workforce is full of a range of people, but they are hands-down some of the most intelligent and down-to-earth people out there. As with all businesses, the quality of colleagues can depend, but more often than not, ACNers are highly competent.

    Most team members are aware of their role on projects and try to go out of their way to both improve themselves, make life easier for others and in general be an asset to the firm.

    Cons

    Highly-stratified corporate culture means that individual interests, if not fought for, will be dismissed or ignored. HR and recruiters sometimes downplay previous experience or expressed interest of employees who are seeking to explore a new workspace or technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Considering the business model of the firm, the current way they manage their business does not need too much improvement. The firm is a product of the workplace and market.
