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

Pros

Benefits are OK, (medical isnt as good as it seems for Kaiser), and the knowledge exchange where all the Accenture past projects and trainings are accessable. There is a ton of information, but you really have to dig hard to find it... however, it was well worth the effort.

Annual training budgets are $5000 per person! If you can justify it with your manager, you can choose what ever you want to learn or acquire a new skill on. Its really great.

Employee party's & monthly team socials are awesome to say the least!

Cons

The company off-shores thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands of jobs each year to "bring value" to clients, but the value isnt afforded to the client or the resource, it goes to line the pockets of the leadership team.

On-boarding experienced hires sucks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some of your managers are terrible, watch closely and recongize that if the a patricular job has had several people leave within a year or two, then there is something wrong with the manager.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to start your career. Great support structure for career and personal guidance. Young workforce that is generally active and engaging to be around. Fantastic clients.

    Cons

    Salaries and bonuses are not competitive and leave much to be desired. There are a lot of politics involved in staffing decisions and your functional/industry specialties may be overlooked if there is a chargeable local role available. Executives who make the sale are not held to the delivery of the deal making delivery teams quite unhappy at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Turn those cons into pros.

    I worked at Accenture full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working hours are usually 8 hours a day. Normally you don't have to work on weekends unless there is a good reason. If you can keep your way out of management's business and do a good job you should be able to work there for a long time. Work life balance is good.

    Cons

    Structure of the company is disconnected in who you report to. If you are in between a project for any reason human resources is responsible for staffing you on a project. In addition to that the person who is responsible for reviewing your work is not your manager. The person who handles your review information is your "career counselor". This person generally has no idea what you actually do at the company on a daily basis. He or she receives input from managers you worked with on the project at the time that you leave. The review process is screwed up. It's really not like most traditional companies where you have a manager and that manager sees what you do every day and knows if you're doing a good job. In addition to that Human Resources doesn't always do a good job when they present you to clients. I worked at this company for more than 5 years. I did not like how the company was managed.

    Also, when I joined travel was not really required. While I was there the company began to have issues finding local clients. If you join this company don't be surprised if they ask you to travel across the country for work. They may not be up front about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the review process so your manager (career counselor) actually knows the truth about the work you are doing.
