Great company with great people, but the job itself was not challenging and not rewarding

Former Employee - Unix Systems Administrator in Cincinnati, OH

I worked at Accenture full-time (more than a year)

Pros

The people are amazing. Some of the best people I've ever worked with and it was very hard to leave the company after making such great friends. The company has many great benefits and can provide a lot of opportunity.

Cons

In my experience you had to "do your time" before anything great happened. Entry level right out of college and pay was not good for the first year or so. Hours can be extremely demanding at times.

    Current Employee - Product Manager in Murray Hill, NJ
    Current Employee - Product Manager in Murray Hill, NJ

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    1. Good career development of management level resources
    2. Top of the market employees and processes
    3. Good experience with industry leaders in financial services

    Cons

    1. Accenture rewards top performers so averages performer raises and bonuses are low
    2. Networking is essential for career development. For "workers" that don't network, career development is challenging
    3. Work/life balance must be managed by the individual

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    50% of the workforce are consistent with employees. Better rewards for the consistent with employees.
