Well-structured and organized company, but weekly travel became exhausting

Pros

- Very open communication from all levels management - Good variety of work in different industry sectors - Little micromanaging - I had the ability to define and influence my own role on projects - though this could be a con for some folks who are more junior and would like more guidance - Very clear career path - up or out is exactly what it is.

Cons

- Travel was relentless and exhausting. It's a very difficult lifestyle if you're older and in a relationship and/or have children. - Many senior folks seemed to live in an Accenture vacuum - spoke in acronyms and were more focused on the Accenture process than really understanding a client's business.

    Pros

    Accenture has lots of smart people, and frankly is the best consulting firm by far. I've worked at several large firms, and they have better people, better systems, better knowledge sharing, amazing clients.... Accenture understands how to best add value to clients operations.

    Cons

    You work your tail off. You're on the road a lot. Clients still are not always great about allowing recommendations to be implemented.


  2. Accenture is a good employer which provides excellent trainings and career opportunity.

    Pros

    Flexible travel policies-allows you to book tickets that best suite your schedule PFF rating is a very structured process Has good bonuses

    Cons

    If you are on H1B and hoping for GC sponsorship, Accenture is NOT the company for you because they don't do sponsorships.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize valuable resources that are on H1B and help them get their GC's. It takes a while to get used and excel in the Accenture culture, so letting go if existing resources and hiring new ones doesn't give much benefit. I have seen this where new hires although senior and very knowledgeable that fails because they are not accustomed to the Accenture methodology.
