Pros

Good place to try out a range of opportunities on different projects, enables you to be a self starter. Great place to start outside of university, lots of opportunities to try different roles.

Cons

Difficult for experienced hires to find their footing and to be integrated into the firm; depending on where you sit in the organisation, there is not always a lot of direction or choice in terms of where you get staffed. Sometimes you can get lost in the shuffle - very much need to manage you own career.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Feel as if management is engaged with employees generally but could be more engaging with those at lower levels.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Accenture is a great place to work. I have personally had only excellent experiences with colleagues. Projects are interesting (though mainly focused on IT and business processes) and you get quickly the opportunity to grow in a project management role.

    Cons

    Accenture is a global company but the incentives and promotions structure makes it in fact a local company. At least in Europe it doesn't happen frequently to be assigned on a project abroad. If you create revenues for another geography, it isn't really appreciated and it won't help with promotion. Moreover, Accenture targets most of the time big clients, which means that if you are interested in more innovative or niche type of work, that will be quite unlikely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revise the incentives structure, and considering investing more in incubators.
