    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 a year)

    Pros

    Potential to be on great projects to boost your resume/career. Work with smart people. Pay is good

    Cons

    Like any company you might get stuck with some bad apples, challenging personalities. The biggest con was the back stabbing and posturing probably due to the ranking system, where you get ranked 1-60~ on your project.

    Advice to Management

    switch to 360 degree review system, it will improve the atmosphere and reduce back stabbing/brown nosing types of situation.

    Good benefits and people, decent opportunities,

    I have been working at Accenture full-time

    Pros

    Great exposure to a wide variety of clients and different types of work

    Cons

    Experience is almost fully based on the types of projects you work on and whether you like your team.

    Advice to Management

    HR and internal organizational structure needs a lot of help - the staffing process is still very unpredictable and a lot of times you get pigeon-holed into projects you are not interested in just to get off the bench.

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

    Pros

    Great company; high-performing environment; you will learn a LOT and if you choose to move on, you will have mad skillz you didn't possess before joining.

    Cons

    Only a few...no sick days (PTO only) and I had to take a cut of 12 days when I joined. Also the 401K match, while generous (dollar to dollar for the first 6%), is delayed for more than a year following start date.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink that time off policy.


  9. "Good company, short on opportunities"

    I worked at Accenture full-time

    Pros

    Lots of perks similar to the Big 4

    Cons

    Being a big company upward mobility is limited

    I have been working at Accenture full-time

    Pros

    Truly are some of the best people to work with and tons of growth opportunities. You have a career counselor and it is easy to talk with them about the direction you want to take your career. As long as your proactive, Accenture has the pieces in place to help you thrive in the workplace. They also have great benefits and it feels like they genuinely care for their employees.

    Cons

    The performance evaluation method is regularly changing which makes it hard to keep up. On my project, all of the Managing Directors and most of the senior managers (disproportionately so) are white and male.
