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

Pros

The only good thing is their "clients", their work is around the latest developments in most of the industries. Unfortunately the client leads are getting increasingly

Cons

Worst Middle management, especially non technical guys who come one temp transfers to USA and try to extend their stay at any cost even by stealing credits for your hardwork, their communication skills are really bad, so dont expect them to understand everything you say or email.
Disrepectful managers
HR department is a joke
Don't fall for a inital Hike, they will cut your pay down in the next perf review without reasons
Don't believe everything they say in terms of Bonus (they would say around 10k), in reality u might get more like 600 or may not get at all.
They expect you to work long hours without pay and with no compensatory offs
Worst of all they will let you go with a weeks notice, for silly or no reason

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please do connect with employees once in a while and see how your middle management is doing. Respond to escalations with an action which will help us with the courage and confidence in the company values. If the middle management is only appointed to harass us and feed off our hard work make it clear in your response so we either quit or get used to it. Lastly if you know we are good at what we do please honor our personal commitment and help us with our Visa and Green cards. Don't always try to look at numbers, Morale of your people matters too.

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

    Pros

    Ability to continuously learn on projects in fast paced environments
    Great opportunity to receive feedback under the correct manager

    Cons

    very poor work life balance
    Most companies atleast pay lip service to work-life balance, but this does not even do that
    High sales pressure at certain levels that leads sr. level staff to not focus on client concerns but be more worried about driving incremental sales

    I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Work from home
    Great boss
    Technically interesting work
    Autonomy

    Cons

    No long term career growth
    Pay is OK.
    Budget so tight that training and tools are less than the average for a software development position
    Leadership appears disengaged from those in the trenches.
    Leadership is focused on fire-fighting and not on planning, modernization, and the well-being of those in the trenches.
    Big disconnect between parent company and subsidiary leadership.
    Rewards are not connected to performance.
    Focus on individual rewards set up to undermine motivation to work as team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop focusing on cutting costs, squeezing people, and squeezing margins to maximize shareholder value.
    Stop focusing on fire-fighting and start focusing on preventing crises and on building capacity.
    Focus on quality not costs.
    Change reward system to reward cross-functional teamwork far more.
