Pros

Accenture follows rigorous business and technical processes that form the basis of its reputation

Cons

Accenture treats (treated) its people like widgets ("human" resources) to burn and churn. It treats (treated) people who provide internal services all the worse (although this basic paradigm is common in business) -- in particular, they have no career growth plans and treat those who wish to grow as annoyances.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your people better and see your churn rate decline, while your performance rise.

    Pros

    You learn to do things you never imagined doing (stepping out of your comfort zone) and lots of networking opportunities if you take advantage of them.
    Decent benefits and PTO (if you get a chance to take it).

    Cons

    Burning out their travelling employees (HR will sell you the role as 50-75% travel and it ends up being 100%) and as a result there is no work life balance. They claim to support and encourage self improvement via classes or whatever method but do not give you time to take advantage of this (due to workload) be it at work or on your personal time. They will cater to the offshore teams more than the onshore teams (scheduling, opportunities to learn, etc). You are oversold on positions and when you do secure it, you are under-qualified for the role (this goes back to my statement above about being able to work on self improvement).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much office bullying at times which can lead to raises/promotions being based on popularity and not merit. Leadership seems too focused on the client/account and competing consulting firms and look at employees as just headcount. While we are there to do a job, try taking time to listen to our input on how to be more successful at the client's site or issues with the managerial structure into consideration. Depending on the project, it is impossible to find a new role especially when your current role will not release you (forcing you to potentially resign). The bonus structure leaves a lot to be desired. Work on listening to and actually trying what employees recommend on the quarterly surveys instead of focusing on the bottom line. When employees are motivated and happy, they will succeed; Happy employees = a successful company.
