    I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities are great. It was a great company to work for.
    You can learn a lot with diverse culture, great people. Lot of projects with different technologies. Clients look up to you as experts and expect to be partners.

    Cons

    Performance Achievement/Management is misused by Management which was thought to help the overall performance management.
    Meritocracy was once the benchmark for Performance assessment
    Bureaucracy is killing the creativity of talented engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Performance Achievement/Management is misused by Management. Earlier the management had the ability to screw up your rating and now they are weaponized by giving them the right to mess with your actual compensation.

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

    Pros

    Friendly people, prestigious company, and great opportunities available, however, you have to network well in order to get staffed on such opportunities.

    Cons

    Local projects are not always that local. A lot of work involves project management, which may be a deterrent for those looking to bolster their technical skill set.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate your local staffing model. If a qualified, local employee wants to be staffed on a local project, they should not be overlooked simply because they are slightly more expensive to the client.

    Pros

    Great people!
    Flexibility to determine your own work life balance. You can work smart and reasonable hours or choose to work long hours. People also respect your PTO and personal life.
    Experience vary widely by project but if you find the project that is the right fit for you, opportunity to move up and build lasting relationship is abundant. Company also takes career advising seriously.

    Cons

    Depending on the project, may encounter unorganized management or incompetencies.

    Advice to Management

    When promoting people to managerial position, their actual managerial skills should be looked at more thoroughly rather then how hard they work. Some people are capable of delivering value by having analyst suffer long hours due to haphazard management strategy. Value delivered this way should not be considered as a competency that grants them promotion.

    Pros

    Interesting, challenging work. Fast paced. Smart and enjoyable colleagues. Strong managers that build deep skills and work ethic.

    Very demanding and only grows as you progress. Flexible about working from home, but hard to fully disconnect. Lots of travel, night and weekend work.

    Advice to Management

    Be more accommodating to those with families who can't be on call 24/7 or travel every week. Otherwise, keep up the good work!
