    Former Employee - Management Consulting Manager  in  London, England (UK)

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

    Pros

    - Lots of opportunities to learn and explore new technologies
    - Decent (not great) benefits
    - Drive of collegues. Analyst / Consultant / Manager level have a can do attitude. A joy to work with

    Cons

    - Career model in full evolution withouth clear communication about the evolution. The old model is very well known and is still communicated by senior management and recruiting. However, in career reviews (evaluations) the new model is used (meaning longer timelines to promote to the next level)
    - Administration around selling new work is fenomenal
    - Lot of focus on evaluation (admin driven) , but when it comes to promotion decisions, these evaluation documents are barely used. Personal support form Senior executive level is key. No support means no promotion even though you might "exceed" in your evaluation (This comment has more relevancy the higher you go in the organisation)
    - Work life balance is bad, but is highly dependent on which BU / manager / Senior Manager / Senior Executive you work for
    - Global management is good, but the translation of global strategy to local levels fails sometimes (again, depending on BU)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Senior local management needs to have vision and strategy which is sometimes missing
    - Recognize key resources on all levels
    - Don't underestimate the level of effort is required to sell inovation to clients (Like Fusion / Mobile). As such, resources active in new inovation can not be compared to resources active in established products like ERP Oracle / Peoplesoft

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Working in Accenture allows you to constantly gain new experience and clear career path

    Cons

    No payment for overtime works. Your satisfaction purely depends on what project you are working in and the management of that project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would be good to allow more work-life balance and break after the completion of projects
