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

Pros

This company has core values; standardized development process, has best practices, lots of training, has many capabilities (e.g. .Net, Java, SAP) to choose from

Cons

Too many documentations and audits, poor performance management criteria and assessment, too much office politics, most projects follow waterfall over agile, and most of the work are application maintenance which can greatly affect on learning.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Revise their criteria on performance management so that hard core and skilled developers/people can be rewarded properly over than those who are not skilled and relies on doing "community" activities which are not part of project work and becomes visible to the management

    I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great and professional people to work with, expanding your network along the way. A lot of projects to work in a variety of industries, gaining a huge amount of experience in minimum time. Choice of keeping your fingers in a lot of pies as you can be involved in activities beyond your every day project job. Involvement in large transformation projects that make your CV stand out. If you like certain titles and work with a strict set of skills then this company is not for you. You need a very open mind being able to pick things up and try to deliver even if you're not an expert in the field. Hence, networking is very important while working for this company. A lot of training on the tap.

    Cons

    Expect long hours in certain projects as you have to consider that the company is successful due to delivering and hitting deadlines. I have marked my record at 32 hours - the team I was working with made it 32 hours of great fun - an experience to remember. However, not all projects are clocking long hours. So you can have a bit of down time if you feel burnt out. You have to shout and yell about the good work that you do, otherwise in such a large company your credits don't shine and fade and consequently you go unnoticed. Getting time off for training can be rather tricky.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide a clear and concise strategy and make sure that this is communicated to the employees. Improve the performance management process by making sure that people get a promotion when they achieved results and not at a later time, especially in situations where they use the phrase "stick around" so they're supported in the next round (=six/twelve months). This causes confusion of achieving results a being rewarded. Make sure your employees/human capital is happy as it is equally - if not more - important than the stakeholders.
