I have been working at Accenture

Pros

- Very smart people
- Depending on the practice, you can run autonomous with little senior management/practice interference
- Good benefits
- Focus on career development
- continues to work on work/life balance

Cons

- Travel, as with any consulting firm
- Size of the firm
- It is a large firm so sometimes change is slow although they do try to adapt quickly

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's hard for such a large firm but it would be good for management to try and localize performance and rewards between groups vs. standardizing across the entire organization.

    Pros

    Broad experience and exposure to various industries and functions; availability of extensive IP in almost all business areas, recognized and respected brand, existing executive relationships

    Cons

    Image as technology and outsourcing firm affects the ability to break through management consulting and pure strategy engagements, limited C-level exposure for team members other than senior executives

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce complexity in promotion and recognition process, improve cross group knowledge sharing and instill discipline in contribution to KX, promote cross group transfers and short term stints.

    I worked at Accenture

    Pros

    salary and bonuses were outstanding. BUT - careful on an hourly basis - probably less than comparable positions where you have a life

    Cons

    worklife balance did not exsist - constantly asking the team to do more and more without getting the correct resources. 14 hr days were not uncommon

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage the customer vs allowing the customer to manage the team

    Doesn't Recommend
