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

    Pros

    Promotions on initial levels with little effort. Good deal with a travel time and still flexible for a Consulting company. Good benefits if possible to take advantage of them.

    Cons

    Base salary below market. Some clients have a very old IT infrastructure and it's sometimes pretty difficult to adopt new IT. Huge difference between Consulting and Technology employees, even though most of the time they have the same roles and do the same job

    Advice to Management

    Try to avoid the stereotype. Technology area (the core of the company) has pretty good people too, who can't have the same benefits as consultants do

    Pros

    - Sehr groß, daher viele unterschiedliche Projekte und Rollen
    - Viele Benefits und Vergünstigungen
    - Sehr gute Unternehmenskultur
    - Gutes Sprungbrett für Berufseinsteiger

    Cons

    - Mäßiges Grundgehalt
    - Teilweise sehr anonym
    - Interne Abteilungen mit steileren Karrieremodellen sorgen für Missgunst

    Advice to Management

    Es fehlt an Experienced Hires. Berufsteinsteiger werden die Herausforderungen der nächsten 10 Jahre nicht allein lösen können.

    Pros

    Very employee-friendly. Awesome place if you are ambitious and like a fast-paced life. Plenty of opportunities. Nice people. High transparency and smooth information flow.

    Cons

    Accenture is a giant beast, and comes with its own baggage of processes and stípulations and "standard" ways. Can be cumbersome at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up th egood work!!!

    I have been working at Accenture as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    1- many projects
    2- salaries are okay in comparison to others in the market
    3- many offices all over Germany which gives flexibility

    Cons

    1- The company hires a lot of employees to serve many projects and this leads to hiring many incompetent colleagues.
    2- the promotion process is totally subjective
    3- in case you are not a developer or Tester or IT architect you will be writing minutes of meeting and coordinating meetings.
    4- Senior Managers don't respect the staff.
    5- no work life balance

    Advice to Management

    Try to rate the employees based on their performance not on their social network within the company

    I worked at Accenture full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Accenture offers consulting services in the areas of strategy, operations, technology, outsourcing, etc. It is unique in connecting these areas and allowing the client to have an end-to-end consulting experience.

    Cons

    Salary is driven by majority of business (technology, operations) and thus the level is not competitive with a typical strategy consulting firm.
