Current Employee - Senior Manager in San Francisco, CA

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

Pros

Wide range of opportunities in all industries, all geographies, and all capability areas/skillsets. Something for everyone.

Cons

Difficult balance between client-facing work and "internal" roles and responsibilities. It is imperative that people take a highly directed approach with respect to finding the right roles. Due to the massive size of the organization, it can be difficult to navigate for those new to the company.

    Unless you are fresh out of college, working for this company as an experience hire is career purgatory...

    I worked at Accenture full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Great technologies used on innovative projects.
    - Lots of training
    - Lots of Travel if you want it, if you don't you will have a hard time finding local gig

    Cons

    - You do not get to pick your projects
    - More often than not, you are asked to work with a technology you never worked with, and get it done unrealistically quick
    - You WILL eventually meet a project manager who is an egregious megalomaniac who will kill your career. Too many young managers who haven't a clue.
    - You will need to get on the good side of your manager to get a good review....this can sometimes be impossible if you get stuck with a megalomaniac as noted in previous notepoint.
    - Promotion/rating process is ridiculous. If you like being rated by an anonymous bunch of people in the ivory tower, this company is for you...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will not retain your top talent, only losers that know how to play the system and are chameleons in the corporate world.

    Best experienced hire orientation from a well managed company if you enjoy traveling 100%.

    Pros

    competitive salaries, and career growth opportunities

    Cons

    Job seeker and head of household beware! Travel 100% and lack of work-life balance unless work from home is offered, but is rare for services compared to consulting workforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on keeping expertise rather than reducing or eliminating over 40 workforce
