Lackluster

Senior Analyst (Current Employee) San Antonio, TX

ProsThis company is definitely good beginning experience. The best things about my role are the work life balance because overtime has to be authorized and schedules can sometimes be flexed. The company also offers lots of paid time off. The people are nice and easy to work with for the most part and the supplemental benefits (life lock, pet insurance) are nice, as well.

ConsThe pay is way below average for degreed individuals in San Antonio… forget about being paid on a national scale. There is not a lot of growth opportunity at the senior analyst level, which includes lateral movement. Non-federal roles are mostly call center operations and there are little to no opportunities to work from home. Most all roles require working with an offshore team and are customer service, despite what your title is. Unfortunately, there are also a lot of micromanagers in lead positions, which is counterproductive and inefficient.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't treat lower level employees (e.g., call center employees) like children. Monitoring bathroom breaks, lunches, and keystrokes doesn't match Accenture culture or encourage people to stay. The goal is to get the job done, not play nanny and waste managerial resources.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great first job but that's all

    Management Consultant (Current Employee)

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


    Pros: There are quite a few benefits that come with working at a large consulting company like Accenture, namely the opportunity to build different functional skills… Cons: - Salary usually starts off competitive to get you in the door and then doesn't really move more than 2-3% except for promotions, even if… Advice to Senior Management: You acknowledge that you hire the best and brightest; why do you treat them as drones and pay them poorly relative to… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
