It's a lot of work, and becomes a lifestyle, and is a decent job for someone right out of college

Pros

You learn a lot of soft and hard skills, you meet and work with generally good people, compensation is good, although not necessarily by judging within the IT industry alone

Cons

Corporate culture is very strong and you are expected to conform, you are only as good as your current project/client boss/accenture boss judges, can be long hours and interfere with work life balance, and maybe most of all, the "meritocracy" promotion system is flawed because most people are high performers and the company is not growing fast enough to accommodate all the promotions that are deserved. Also, it can be hard to branch out from Accenture to other jobs.

Advice to Management

Revise the meritocracy system to allow more promotion spots, if this isn't possible, then create and socialize a consulting career path that involves staying at-level with greater compensation.

    Pros

    Brand name lots of projects

    Cons

    you cannot select the project as you wish... you should be good in word,excel,powerpoint rather than .net/java etc., you should know how to act, dance in the party, sending birthday invites rather than work you cannot select the ;location you want, they will transfer even if you dont have interest

    Advice to Management

    Respect technical guys instead of managers..

    Pros

    Fair salary, plenty of work, smart workforce, plenty of opportunities, competitive environment, great benefits package. Global company.

    Cons

    Work tends to creep deeply into your personal life, some execs. do not respect boundaries even though they talk about it often. Travel can be demanding, but it is part of the deal.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the enterprise on a successful trajectory, my pension depends on it. Remove known abusers from from your key positions. The short-term gains by these people may erode long-term objectives.
