Great place to work with different people, limited to the types of industries in the Canadian market.

I have been working at Accenture

Pros

People. I have been able to meet some of the most fun and interesting people. The network opportunity here endless and you will meet and work with people from all over the world with a wide range of personalities and skills. They say you don't really get to experience consulting until you get an out of town project. That's when all the perks come in with the hotels, flights, per diems.

Cons

Projects in the Canadian market are somewhat limited. There's Oil&Gas in Calgary and some random projects in Toronto and very limited elsewhere. Some projects are black holes and very difficult to get out of despite the lack of any career growth on the project.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your employees. They are smart and very capable and aren't afraid to leave the company if they are not happy.

    I have been working at Accenture

    Pros

    - Great place to get experience and exposure to many projects
    - Excellent networking value if you're smart
    - Good place to improve your softskills
    - Great co-workers for the most part
    - Excellent value for those who have a global outlook to working

    Cons

    - Management is usually blind or not considerate enough for the work those below do
    - Compensation lags behind other companies
    - Too much politics between different BUs
    - Overpromise and under deliver to customers but that is an industry issue and not completely the fault of ACN

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nurture and spend time with those who do the work. Keeping them happy will not only reduce attrition and "stats" but will improve productivity and save the company money in the long run.

    I worked at Accenture

    Pros

    One of the better IT work places in India. Has a good work culture and environment which is a huge positive.

    Cons

    Towards the end of my term in Accenture with increased work hours, relatively bad pay policy and high attrition led to a lot of stress in the work environment. Also the new offices in Mumbai are at remote suburban locations and commuting to-from is a huge pain. The process of getting into a project especially for an employee with 2+ years of experience is excruciating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain the informal work culture and maintain at least being at par with the similar tier-1 companies. Senior employees should be interviewed and be allowed to chose their project unless business needs are urgent, politics in this is really frustrating.
