    I have been working at Accenture (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Compensation is decent, company is fast paced, and definitely fosters a competitive environment. A lot of intelligent people work for this company and the number of resources at your disposable is almost incomprehensible.

    Cons

    Focus is on meeting contractural requirements and not always on the customer. Our bill rates are very high and if you're not exceptional in the eyes of client they will usually fire you. The "management" hierarchy is insane and a lot of people have egos because of it. It's miserable to work with those people. Also, they tend not to always reward their best workers, presentation is key in this company.

    Advice to Management

    Many of us charge hourly, it's not smart to force us to do things the clients don't care about while ignoring the things they do care about. Give us a little more freedom to make the best decisions instead of just following Accenture philosophy.

    Pros

    Travel opportunity, large network, decent pay for experienced hires, compensation between projects.

    Cons

    Travel required, strenuous work hours, lack of overtime pay.

    Advice to Management

    Don't push/pressure resources to jump into the first available project, but rather encourage resources (even experienced hires) to improve/expand skills by waiting for the right opportunity.

    Pros

    Great place to work with flexibility to move laterally in different areas which an individual wants to explore

    Cons

    Being a large MNC with global presence, resources are easily lost without proper career guidence

    Advice to Management

    Resources in customer facing roles often get tuned to client responsibilities and their way of work culture. When a resource stays in one client location for long duration they tend to lose track of market trend. This becomes risky over a period of time. Hence, training should be made mandatory and working in Accenture location should be made mandatory atleast one day per week/fortnight. This day can be utilized to learn new skill or schedule a training.
