    I worked at Accenture full-time (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 courage on the part of leadership to initiate this and support it, knowing fully well that it takes multiple years to achieve the intended outcome.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Get to work with cool new tech. Management invests in you if you take the initiative. You’re now allowed to stay local if you pick the right type of work. Management leaves you alone if you know the ropes.

    Cons

    They lie to you a lot about when or how you will be comped before you start. You can get stuck on bad projects because the client likes you. If the account team isn’t proactive then you’ll spend weeks doing basic administrative work. Certain people will stab you in the back for their own gain.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the red tape.

    Pros

    Young, ambitious and smart workforce

    Cons

    If you don't like travel for work, Accenture consulting is probably not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    No major issues to mention, especially since the annual feedback process has been revised for the better since I left Accenture.

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

    Pros

    Work from home 2 days/week
    Lots of training resources
    Very understanding of extenuating circumstances (medical and such)
    Lots of team lunches/dinners/outings
    Free breakfast 1/week
    Flex hours (7am-9am and 3pm-5pm)
    Plenty of parking
    Great people/coworkers
    Opportunity to learn
    Can decorate cubicle pretty much however you want
    Timesheets are not overly complex
    Travel opportunities
    Bosses/upper management are all extremely(cannot stress enough) nice and understanding/flexible and do a great job looking out for you (even though same level coworkers can occasionally be horrible)

    Cons

    Always either not enough tasks to complete or too many
    Access (as with any government work) takes a long time and it is boring until you get access
    Pay is less than comparable jobs at other companies
    Work schedule is often vague or unclear and can often change suddenly
    Some tasks feel like busy work and are not rewarding (no sense of accomplishment)
    Lots of documentation work (ratio of documentation to coding is not great)
    Dealing with access/work requests often causes delays in progress and can be frustrating
    Cubicles are all gray

    Advice to Management

    Management is amazingly nice, not sure how you consistently promote the nicest people but keep it up! More competitive compensation (compared to USAA) would be nice. Clearer work/task scheduling
