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

    Pros

    Huge range of people whom I've worked with, but for the most part team members are smart and creative. Travel was manageable for me, but I mostly had local projects at a great client.

    Large variety of projects available and clients, though there are many system implementation / integration projects. Ability to work basically anywhere in the US if you're competent.

    Cons

    Pay is alright. Salary is good but other benefits and compensation is lacking until you reach upper management levels.

    Managing client relationships plus internal corporate hierarchy can be frustrating at times - performing well at the client site may not translate directly to rewarded compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Improved stock options and bonus compensation would have retained me (and according to my team I am a high performer).

    Core training is lacking, most of what I learned was on the job.

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

    Pros

    Great fun and young culture. Great travel despite new regional model (if you desire to stay within your region). Not very competitive - internally. Diversity initiatives are through the roof.

    Cons

    Experience varies widely by project. Training could be significantly improved.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more heavily into training. Don't hire as many people. Fix your forecasting model.

    Pros

    Large company translates to variety of opportunities.

    Pros

    Good pay, good work/life balance, great people, recognizable name

    Cons

    Disconnected/disorganized leadership, lack of transparency, lack of mobility within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Take more initiative in growing your more junior employees to reduce turnover.

    I worked at Accenture as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Smart, good coworkers. Solid work culture. Tons of free swag and benefits. They treat their employees very well.

    Cons

    I didn't find the work to be incredibly meaningful. Also, Accenture tends to prioritize its consulting, so I found many of their events and mixers to be geared toward consultants. This was occasionally frustrating as a software engineer.

    Advice to Management

    Give more individual attention to the software engineering departments.

  8. "Very Pleased with Hiring Process"

    Pros

    Great interview process! Wonderful offer considering I'm right out of college- they are assisting me with relocation as well.

    Cons

    They started the interview process a little late in the game for a December grad but were able to work around an existing offer I had.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, lots of PTO, job stability.

    Cons

    Will overwork you without compensation. Raises and bonuses are very small. Management does not respect work life balance. My manager told me in order to advance I was expected to work 12-15 hour days. I have overworked myself thinking I would please management on multiple occasions and my efforts were never valued. I have requested training for 10 years however there was never enough money in the budget or never enough time since supporting production was always a top priority.

    Advice to Management

    Respect work life balance. Value employees more by rewarding them appropriately. Don't take employees for granted.

    I worked at Accenture full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of resources, ability to work from home, development programs, good networking events

    Cons

    poor work/life balance, lots of politics, raises are tied to promotions - which are not exactly tied to how hard you work or how good of a job you do, pay was not impressive.

     I found that in my group, it was hard for more junior employees to advance due to the needs of the business.. which is understandable but at some point management needs to realize this is a problem, and if they want to focus on keeping attrition numbers low they should be more in tune with the sentiment of their people. All too often did my manager shy away from those conversations which resulted in him being clueless as to what my career goals and interests were. Hard to manage someone effectively when you don't know what makes them tick. Sure, I could've requested a transfer, but I was worried that I would burn bridges internally and it wouldn't be any better than leaving the firm because of the nature of the politics.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to be more engaged with employees and what they want out of their job & recognize people for their personal and professional accomplishments.
