    Pros

    Clear performance rating system. Clear path for career advancement. Coworkers are generally friendly and helpful. Rewards hard work and soft skills. Great company for people who are well-rounded.

    Cons

    Difficult to control amount of time available to yourself (especially at lower levels); forty-hour workweek somewhat of a dream. Difficult to control area into which one specializes (especially at lower levels).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time helping new hires and recent college graduates. They need guidance and support in order to develop their careers in a way that will benefit both them and the company.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time

    Pros

    I work with (mostly) ridiculously smart and effective people, I have received significant raises the past couple of years working here, 5 weeks of PTO a year, generous training allowance, and a very flexible boss (on the current project). Accenture also has annual days of service, lots of attention paid to GLBT and diversity issues with local committees devoted to those things on project. I've been extremely impressed with Accenture, and it's the only large company I've worked for that has felt like it cared about more than just making as much money off of it's employees as it can.

    Cons

    My experience is mostly because of the project I have been on. I was on two other projects for short periods of time that were much more boring, restrictive, and less flexible. Your day to day experience at Accenture seems to be highly based on project. I have been building up my PTO bank higher than I want, because there's so much work it's sometimes hard to take time off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management seems to be doing just fine. Some of the line managers are on the inflexible side.
