Current Employee - Manager in San Francisco, CA
Current Employee - Manager in San Francisco, CA

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

Pros

If you are just graduating this is the place to start your career. Maybe you want to travel (because you will every week).
401k matching is good.

Cons

Not a good place for experienced hires. This company brings in people with 20 years experience at the Consultant title while promoting 5 years out of school to Manager title. Experienced hires are fillers when they have extra work and will not be promoted to Manager before 3 years. Travel is outrageous with more and more global travel required, which means 21 days away from home 7 days working in country. Bonuses are small. There is no training other than required video training that is around ethics and fraud required to protect ACN not you. Your technical skills will be degraded here.
Beware that coming to ACN is just the beginning of your interviewing. Every time you complete an assignment you must find your assignment and competitively apply and interview for each new position.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't hire experienced hires unless you have a plan for their careers. People invest in ACN and you need to invest in your people. Provide training so your staff can remain current in their skills. It costs more to layoff every 3 years and hired newly trained people. Once companies start to on-shore work they will have little need for your brand of spreadsheet delivery with all technical workers offshore. These experienced hires you think so little of will be the employees your clients will trust when engaging ACN. Have a little regard to where your people live and actually plan assignments instead of last minute looking for the cheapest resource with less travel expenses.

    Improve the benefits package. Currently is in the lower scale of comparative consulting firms. Make project hours more consistent across the board.
