    Pros

    Great smart and collegial colleagues who all work hard and are generally fun to be with. Exciting lifestyle with lots of travel

    Consulting lifestyle can be too much travel and not enough balance. In the end also can be a small cog in a big wheel where impact can be hard to see

    Advice to Management

    Keep showing the appreciation of the employees, and minimize the office politics

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

    Pros

    Interview was not that difficult. Behavioral questions on the phone and then a office 2 hour interview with 3 mangers and a 30 min financial case analysis.
    Great company to learn and grow. Work from home half the week. Nice benefits and paid time off. Diverse environment and wonderful people to work with.

    Cons

    Time sensitive work and deadlines that have to be met but still not difficult to manage. The company is also doing away with a poor performance appraisal and changing the way they review employees.

    "Accenture"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

    Pros

    Well paying opportunities and benefits, with highly skilled and very smart colleagues throughout the organization who's willing to assist you. Also, you have the ability to move around in the organization in a variety of roles.

    Cons

    Highly pressured environment to perform better than peers, in which expectations not reasonable and possible set up for failure. Most peers are of type A personalities, highly driven and at time can come off as arrogant and disrespectful.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that employee turnover or the ability to attract top diverse talent is a big issue. Make sure women can grow and have freedom to express themselves , where they feel like they have just as much investment as their male counterparts.

    Pros

    The people are great. I have had some really fantastic mentors who helped me "figure out" the upward path.

    Cons

    The lack of transparency into how promotions and compensation are distributed. Additionally, the preferential way of getting staffed from one project to the next makes it difficult for new joiners to acclamate.
