Pros

I don't think anyone could argue that Accenture is not a great place to start a career. People fresh out of college are given a great deal of responsibility and challenged to bring out their true potential, but competition is fierce.

Cons

While you may be doing your job very well, you still have the possibility of not getting promoted because there is always someone else on your project that is more in the scope of senior leaders and is sometimes setup with more responsibilities. The is unfortunate for the real hard-workers that are less about the talk and more about the walk. From experience, promotions for a lot of people seem few and unlikely.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The laddering/promotion system needs to be restructured. Accenture loses a lot of strong minds and able people due to the fact that they are unhappy with their promotion opportunities.

    Current Employee - Senior Manager in Washington, DC

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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
