    I worked at Accenture full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    competitive salary
    work with very smart people
    interesting roles

    Cons

    Always having to find your next project. Many times you would move together as a team, but sometimes that isn't possible or it doesn't align to your career goals so you had to join the rat race of the internal job posting system to find your next assignment. I was aligned to MC

    Advice to Management

    The new performance achievement is very gray and difficult to understand. There didn't seem to be clear/metrics goals that someone could work toward.

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

    Pros

    Good salary and benefit packages

    Cons

    Very closed minded and hard to accept professionals that have come to firm later. Most people from acquisitions and experienced hires leave after a few years.

    Advice to Management

    Break the clicks that reward friendship and longevity exclusively for promotions.

    I worked at Accenture full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, generous holiday policy, lower than average workload

    Cons

    Group form clicks, small fish in a huge pond feeling, high attrition rate, work can be un-motivating, no tuition reimbursement program

    Advice to Management

    Main reason I left the company because I wanted to pursue a master's degree and the company does not do tuition support. I think having an education support program like MBB is a great way to retain talent.

    Pros

    Culture, tools, work/life balance and training

    Cons

    Compensation process & advancement opportunities are limited.

    Advice to Management

    Look to help those who want to succeed find the path to the next level in their career. Evaluate employees based on feedback and representation rather than letting HR do their own thing.

    "Probably okay for a consulting firm"

    Current Employee - Management Consultant in Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Management Consultant in Houston, TX

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

    Pros

    Good technology, good co-workers, opportunity to work in different areas with different people and new clients. You can "make your own career", but it takes a lot of luck.

    Cons

    Maddening promotion process, the ability to make your own career is basically a myth if you come in at an analyst level since you're forced to take any open role, even if it's not what you want.

    Advice to Management

    None.
