  1.  

    Overall a good experience, new things to learn, some bad "drama" within the group.

    Current Employee - Client Financial Management Specialist in Chicago, IL

    Pros

    Flexible work arrangements, excellent benefits, good incentives for profit sharing/bonuses, fun environment.

    Cons

    Career advancement often based on popularity with management staff, base pay lacking compared to similar positions at other companies, promotion decisions based on need for more resources at different levels, rather than employees being ready to move to the next level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation needs to be re-evaluated, as many employees are looking outside of the firm for better positions. Career progression needs to be based on ability, rather than popularity.

    Pros

    Interesting projects, many challenges, good training and access to a large amount of material and people to help you do your project. Travel - I've been to India twice and was in Canada for seven months on a project.

    Cons

    Typically full-time travel, if you have a family they will need to plan on you being away Monday-Thursday every week and occasionally away on week-ends OR work from home on week-ends during go-lives/project requirements

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Additional training to manage client and Accenture management expectations for on-site work. I believe that Accenture would have the following benefits if it started on a 50% (or less in some cases) travel routine.
    Benefits:
    1. More employee satisfaction, less turn-over
    2. Less cost / carbon footprint
    3. Could provide greater productivity - currently I'm on two projects and have a 10-11 hour travel time on Mondays - this is not conducive to getting 8 hours of work in along with all that travel.
    Barriers:
    1. Accenture management still prefers to manage people in person - additional training on how to manage off-site employees could resolve some of that concern.
    2. Additional training for people who are working off-site to 'manage' both their Accenture management as well as their client could provide 'as-good-as' or better results,
    3. Efforts to sell the benefits of off-site work to the client could be increased.
