Current Employee - Senior Analyst in Arlington, VA

I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Great reputation, great spring board, great vacation time

Cons

As analyst or consultants, you have a short life expectancy aka burn out likely, very young / immature crowd. Your colleagues social life is their colleagues which means they don't mind staying longer. With this mentality going into a deliverable, be prepared to have to stay late too.

All roles are testers or programmers... very high demand and little for business roles

Advice to ManagementAdvice

promote people with good management skills, not just technical skills. A manager doesn't need to know the very technical aspects of systems integration - that's the analysts job. I have been burned many times because my manager is less experienced in management than I am. This leads to a ton of rework and lack of communication because they want to save face. If you can't trust the analysts because they are new, then you need to train more, or get the right people on the bus who you CAN trust.

    Leadership is disconnected with what's going on below senior manager. Retention issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find the truth out yourself; not just what people say. Organizational health is very important.
