Pros

Great company for new analysts to join and grow

Core values, dedicated and committed employees

Not a diverse organization, feels odd especially in the silicon valley
Not very accommodating to experienced hires
Salaries not competitive
Emphasis on building sales, networks, relations as opposed to delivery, skills, knowledge

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop a career model based on expertise, knowledge and skills - strive to strike a balance between sales and delivery

    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.
