    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

    Great benefits and work-life balance. Good collaboration and fun teams.

    Cons

    Team leaders were a little more focused on delivery dates and schedules and less on appropriate test parameters. I think we jumped the gun on a few projects that could have run more smoothly if we spent more time working out the bugs first instead of scrambling to fix things in a live production instance.

    Advice to Management

    When you take the anonymous surveys about management - actually follow through. Employees participated yearly and got the same speech year after year because nothing ever changed.

    Pros

    Great colleagues and leads, great work life balance. You have the ability to contribute and be heard.

    Cons

    Unfortunately my contractor role was eliminated due to forecasted demand not actually selling. It's difficult to determine that supply/demand balance!
