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

    Pros

    People: Accenture is about people and it shows
    Talent: most of the people I worked with are extremely talented in one way or another
    Network: you will always find someone within the company that can help you
    Flexibility: to shape your career and grow in the direction you want to
    Core values: The whole company lives by the same Core values and it shows

    Cons

    As a consulting company you need to be prepared to work hard to deliver challenging projects.
    This is usual for consulting companies but you should be someone who is not looking to work within your comfort zone, it's a perfect company for people who want to build a career.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on people and retaining talent, this is what makes Accenture great!

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

    Pros

    There are a lot of pros working for Accenutre. They have great career opportunities, a never ending supply of interesting work, competitive compensation, wonderful benefits, great people, wonderful training programs, a tremendous number of brilliant professionals in their fields ready to help, and great core values.

    Cons

    This is not an opportunity for those that do not want to work. At Accenture everyone has a load of work to do and often times under very tight customer time lines. It is a challenge that I enjoy but many might find it stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Accenture is on a path to not only financial success but also to cultural success which is a much hard thing to achieve.

    I worked at Accenture full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Tremendous breadth of experience and very professional. So many career paths and possibilities, especially if you are patient (but not too patient) and speak up for what you want to do!

    Cons

    Finding your place in such a large organization can be difficult. Because there are so many people and career opportunities, it's just as likely that you end up on a great project you love with leaders who care about you as it is that you end up doing work you don't like with leaders who are so dedicated to their clients that they let their employees suffer.

    Advice to Management

    People don't leave companies, they leave managers. That's what happened to me and so many others. Accenture is a fabulous company (one of the top in the world) and has a lot of good people, including great leaders, but I just didn't feel like I was working for one anymore and I was tired of trying to find one, so it was easier to leave.

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

    Pros

    Great training, opportunities to move throughout the company and exposure to different industries.

    Cons

    Depending on your staffing, limited contact with client at times.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate is very open to new ideas but has recently been focused on increasing employee moral outside of the office. I would advise more internal surveying on employee satisfaction in upward mobility and compensation.

    The Salary is competitive and the benefits are great. Enroll in the ESPP!

    Navigating your way through Accenture can be tricky. Remember to think long term while at Accenture.

    Create a program geared towards the development and advancement of Minorities.

    Pros

    The benefits are great I think, there is plenty of vacation time, the additional programs (share purchase program, 401k matching) are pretty good too.

    Cons

    I hate that you are just a number. Everything ends up being a request that someone from india responds to. Those people have zero idea on how things work in US and they just follow the policy that has nothing to do with real life. Also Salary review process is non existant. I moved across country to an area that has significantly higher cost of living and where Accenture praises itself for market rate, there was no adjustment what so ever to my salary.
