    I worked at Accenture full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have worked with Accenture in two countries - the US and India. I felt that there is deep respect for one another and one can trust & rely upon another to deliver on commitments. There was an extremely high degree of ownership and accountability at an individual level - a deep sense of personal commitment. I salute the commitment to "Performance Achievement" at a scale that is daunting - it takes tremendous...

    Cons

    Accenture's greatest strength can also be its weakness. Its size and speed can cause scary moments - particularly when multiple countries & cultures are involved. The change can be daunting and structures are needed to navigate the rough waters.

    Pros

    Tremendous brand name opens door with any large company Scale of Business and IT consulting services cannot be matched Talent Development is World-Class and second to none in this industry

    Really need to work hard to make a name for yourself in a company of nearly 500k employees; it takes years.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time for 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.

    At a huge company, it is easy to get lost. To be successful at Accenture, you must know what you want to do and be willing to speak up to get there.
