    I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - There is a pay increase if you don't belong to "Below Peer Group"
    - You can offset work hours if you render OT
    - Health benefits
    - Great people to work with
    - Managed performance system
    - Open door policy
    - Competitive pay
    - Lots of career opportunities

    Cons

    - Low pay for starters
    - No OT pay
    - Shifting schedules for some projects
    - HR often tag employees to wrong project roles no matter what the skills
    - Some projects have bad management; lucky if you get a good project with a role matched to your skills
    - HR dictates what role and project you'll get. You have no right to choose which role and project you want.
    - Office politics. Some projects have unfair promotion system. They promote who they know in the project.
    - "Up-or-out" system. If you don't get into the "Consistent with Peer Group" group or above, you are on the risk of losing your job. This results to employees competing with each other to the point of backstabbing co-workers to get that promotion.
    - 45 hour work week so employees are quite overworked

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HR should pay attention to the employees skill set and assign the right role. Management should promote someone deserving to that position.
