    Pros

    People mean well, good customer base and opportunities for customer facing people. People are respected for their differences.

    Cons

    Salaries and bonuses for above manager are now officially a joke. Mgmt really tells a good story about caring for people to The Street but morale is down, attrition is up up and bonuses were slashed to immaterial levels for nearly all people. If you want a good name but will see pay go down over time, then it's worth it at the junior level of your career. No onshore job is safe to move offshore. 20% of people got a raise.

    Advice to Management

    Pay freeze was painful folks. Reminder it costs shareholders 10k to hire every new person and the client quality issues will continue.

    Pros

    Great people, not cut-throat and back stabbing like in other places. A lot of training and education opportunities, great name on the resume, and you work with top leadership in fortune 500 companies from day 1, and get more experience in 1-2 years, than probably 5 years in a normal industry gig. You also get paid bank right out of college, feel like a baller, traveling around and all that.

    Cons

    After a few years, they want you to specialize in something, and if it's boring, you're kinda out of luck. Performance reviews can be hit or miss, and that's when politicking can be a factor. Some of the jobs are obviously boring, and they are cutting down on travel now. Switching to another area of expertise can be difficult, through I've seen it be done before. After a few years too, the work/life balance goes away - people brag about how many hours they work to which I say, "Great job buddy, your marriage is about to end, and your kids barely know you, but at least you put in 80 hours this week", people's priorities get messed up after staying there for too long.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working at Accenture has worked for me. I ahve been part of some wonderfully varied projects and that has enabled me to add value to myself while adding to the companies bottom line. I ahve gotten to work with really talented and smart people for the most part. Navigating through the system here can be tricky and I can see why people have the opinions they do, but it has worked for me! I appreciate the support that the company has given me with respect to flexible working hours when I needed it.

    Cons

    The promotion process can do with some change; salary hikes are very negligible even for high performers. and the bonus- dont even mention it!

    Advice to Management

    Please be more competitive wrt salaries; It motivates high performing individuals to leave an otherwise perfectly good working opportunity.

    Pros

    The people are by far the best and so many long lasting friendships have come out of Accenture. It is also a great place to get the most experience you will ever get from a company, which will help your career take off. If you desire to move to another company at some point in your life, you will be sought after by so many!
    Also, hotel and airline points!

    Cons

    Work/life balance is very difficult to come by. Travel is fairly common. Can be put in roles which you have no experience doing but are deemed to be an expert by the client.

    -Learning experience is phenomenal. I learn something new every day. There are also tons of training courses available.

    -Extremely smart co-workers. Everyone has great stories to tell about what they know.

    -Good work/life balance. Sometimes we work long hours, but managers make sure we don't work on the weekends. Fridays we can work from home!

    -Great corporate culture. I feel valued and the company really cares about each individual.

    Cons

    -None. I've had a great ride so far and I can't wait for what is in store for me in the future!
