    I worked at Accenture full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Really good people and even the senior folks were very approachable and interesting
    Overseas opps as well
    Training opportunities looked great but I wasn't there long enough to realise any of them

    Cons

    Treat people as numbers
    Place people in roles for which they have no skills
    Travel is expected and built in: I was already used to this and had no problem but others really struggled and they kept being put on commuting engagements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your promises and when people quit because they have been breached don't let senior partners bully and berate people. Most unpleasant experience.

    I worked at Accenture full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some great people - very good training (yearly budget and level training).
    Good socially.

    Cons

    Every year 15-20% of all levels are forced / 'recommended' to leave.

    Managerial levels have to 'ladder' people across all projects and clients - (ie put all employee's into positions, of which the bottom 15-2-% will then be managed out).

    Senior Management trying to get promoted to Senior Executive/Partner level - are extremely difficult as their only focus is on their promotion rather than the good of the client or management of people working for them.

    Work/Work balance rather than work/life balance especially at managerial levels where any pretence of 'great place to work' are completely discarded.

    Very political - not always for the benefit of the client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your Senior Management team are failing you - overly focused on positioning for Senior Executive promotion and are failing their Management team and subsequent other levels as well as the clients.
