Pros

Strong Credentials of Company; deep client relationships; senior management engaged in company success; strong culture - most folks understand the "secret sauce" of the companies culture which is important

Cons

Compensation much lower than other consultant companies; benefits on average to other companies; entry level employees not very skilled - sometimes more of a body shop

Advice to Management

More investment in middle/upper management; higher entry level senior executive compensation; more focus on senior manager development; senior managers are often "left out" of key decisions

    Pros

    - Good training. - Quick career advancement. - Great brand recognition. - International work opportunities.

    Cons

    - Long working days. - Quick career advancement can occasionally lead to overinflated egos and somewhat limited work experience for career level. - Partners can at times be very unpleasant if not arrogant to deal with. - Projects are often staffed with a few knowledgeable people and many inexperienced staff. - Extensive problems integrating experienced new hires into the Accenture culture. Collage hires appear to be better suited for their culture.

    Pros

    Accenture is a great company to excel your career. You are given a lot of responsibility at a rapid rate. Most of the employees are very competant and produce a high work product.

    Cons

    Very little work/life balance exists within Accenture's Consulting workforce. Long hours and weekend work are the norm. Don't expect to be rewarded for your efforts as Accenture pays on the low end in comparison to similiar firms. Overall Accenture is a churn and burn work environment that brings in bright, young go getters that get burned out in 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people better.
