    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 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, 401k match, PTO, diversity, job growth

    Cons

    Constant surveys on all aspects of company, global company means dealing with out of country employees when using services making connecting or understanding sometimes difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Great idea to address performance individually based on that person's capabilities but, give some basic CONCRETE expectations for us older employees who are used to being given clear guidance and goals.

    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 3 years)

    Pros

    Accelerated Learning - Prior to joining Accenure, I had the perception that the firm produced machines. Ex-Accenure employee that I worked with (in prior engagements) always seemed to perform 10 X faster and harder than any of their peers. After working here, I understand why, you are asked to juggle a ton of responsibilities.

    Amazing Talent - I have the pleasure of working with some exceptionally talented folks. I am constantly amazed by my peers and mentees.

    Networking is Encouraged- I’ve worked for 2 other big 4 consulting firms. Accenure truly understands the “team” mentality and the power of networking and working together to get a solid solution.

    Cons

    Promotions pay increases are terrible if you negotiated well as an experienced hire. I believe the firm is trying to be fare in regards to pay within same band.

    Too much work...the concept of having a “plus 1” never ends.

    In many cases offshore counterparts have worse work-life balance than onshore (and onshore work-life balance is not good).

    Advice to Management

    Try to practice what is being preached regarding work life balance. Lead by example and encourage the use of PTO.

    I worked at Accenture full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities galore to stretch your capabilities.

    Great pay, benefits, PTO, 401k, and stock.

    Very professional atmosphere with many programs to support diversity and create equality.

    Cons

    Long hours, demanding clients and even more demanding leadership.

    They say they care about work life balance but in theory only.

    Competitive and political when it come to end of year ratings which affect bonus and promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure it would make a difference as the die is cast and Accenture became what it wanted to be, enormous, powerful, profitable with less and less care for its employees.

    Pros

    -FREE FOOD
    -Perfect atmosphere for people in their 20s.
    -Great energy from co-workers

    Keep being awesome!

    I worked at Accenture full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My manager was amazing. Our team was so lucky to have her. I felt truly supported in my role. I was recognized for the work I did. Good pay. Volunteering opportunities. The company's mission and values were empowering and exciting. Learned a ton. Loved working from home. Benefits were incredible.

    Cons

    Lack of opportunities to move into different roles and no work/life balance, which is why I ultimately left. Also didn't feel that I could create any meaningful change due to how big the company is.

    Pros

    Good salary, easy transition from college, easy to do well

    Cons

    Management does poor job of handling inappropriate/bad behavior, negative workplace relationships are allow to get worse/escalate to toxic, management frequently uses bait/switch tactics (promising raises or promotions, better roles if you complete xyz project... rarely follow thru)
