I have been working at Accenture full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Great place for a first job and able to telecommute every Friday.

Cons

Limited in career development, was not able to move onto a different project to pursue career goals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should work on using their resources, a lot of people don't really work in the office whereas some teams are caught up with too much work to do.

    Pros

    This is one of the best companies to launch a career. The colleagues and management that you will find at Accenture truly are world-class.
    For those that are already well into their career, Accenture is a wonderful place to refine existing skills and build new ones.
    Opportunities abound for those that are motivated and willing to put in the effort.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance is something that is constantly discussed by staff and management -- the challenge is that no one discusses how to manage that balance. In order to thrive in a fast-paced and demanding consulting environment, you need to determine what this balance is and effectively communicate this to others. WIthout this, you will find that that projects and business development opportunities will eat into all aspects of your life.

    I worked at Accenture full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great training, fast paced and dynamic environment, get to see and work with different companies and clients, people help each other out, strong pay and benefits, look after people for the most part, good regular promotions, always innovating and changing to continue staying ahead of the market and competitors, really good holiday/PTO days.

    Cons

    Work life balance is a challenge especially if you end up traveling long way to client sites, can be exciting when you are young but gets harder especially with marriage and kids, at senior levels the politics and egos are counter productive and it means a lot of good people leave before or shortly into the senior executive levels, promotions to senior executive are not as fair and objective as they should be based on meritocracy instead based more on the time served and who you know and network with in my experience, they lose a lot of very good people that way, finally huge size of company makes bureaucracy and support on many of internal areas like HR, Finance and Admin much harder than should be to do your day job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a serious look at injecting a stronger amount of independent oversight and review to senior executive promotions and look further back at ratings/reviews beyond just the most recent two years as that is short sighted. Also, take client input. Start walking the walk on meritocracy and respect for individuals by weeding out or minimizing people decisions for those arrogant and big ego senior execs so you keep more good people at senior levels.
