Pros

Accenture is a really great place to work. They have awesome benefits, competitive salaries, and the opportunity to move up in the company.

Cons

The company is very large and sometimes you don't feel like you know anyone. Travel becomes difficult at times.

    Pros

    Best team I have ever worked with in 20+ years. Can-do attitude and exciting technology make for a great work experience. Supportive management, challenging environment. Great training when required. People do what they say they will and aren't afraid to ask questions. Making mistakes is acceptable provided you are up front & timely with updates. Chance to work on anything they throw at you and learn new technology in-depth. Very little politics.

    Cons

    Long hours. Really long. Money could be better but it is within industry standards. Advancement very slow and even then only with superior performance.

    Advice to Management

    A few more bodies on projects and less weekend work.

    Pros

    Premium brand with unmatched global capabilities. Good to be a shareholder.

    Cons

    Since going public a decade ago, Accenture has become a slave to the street and doesn't take care of its employees like it used to. Tenured people get below-market salaries (according to Accenture's own "zones") while new experienced hires get paid above-market. Accenture has grown so big and hired so aggressively that quality of its people is very hit-or-miss. Additionally, it's nearly impossible to make partner. Senior managers selling and delivering $40-50 million annually don't even make it anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Don't pay below-market and expect people to stick around. Bring back a sense of community that has been all but lost with the tremendous growth of the company.
