Pros

Exposure to different industries. Good training opportinities

Cons

Performance review system installed by the company is really horrible. It is totally subjective and biased. Working with a manager who is either frustrated or up for promotion can be a disaster. At the end of the day he/she can say anything about individual contributors and there is no system installed to cross check and validate any assertion by such individuals. I believe many will share my observations across the board. Good contributors and performers go without unnoticed and without getting rewarded while those who are good at pretending and talking loud with zero knowledge of specific task at hand often get rewarded and promoted. I have personally seen peoples assigned to a project with zero knowledge of what needs to be accomplished. All it takes is for that person to be a good pretender and get favored. If it continues like this, the issue will have compounding effect on Accenture and its clients.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Most higher managers climbed the ladder by enforcing and implementing a horrible system installed by the company; as such providing input to here is worthless.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Great learning opportunities. Managers are very obliging with flex trips so you can spend most of your weekends visiting new cities.

    Cons

    Compensation doesn't keep up with inflation for most analysts.
    The management consulting practice is weak so you get pushed on system integration rojects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruit less MC people. It's unethical to recruit someone into MC if you know they'll only be doing SI. Most MC applicants are not interested on SI
