    I worked at Accenture as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Enjoyed the people I worked with. Upper management always made time to say hello, or acknowledge me. OT was plentiful-as long as the client was producing work. The position hired for was easy!

    Cons

    No opportunity for full time work.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits at a progressive company.

    Cons

    - Senior leadership at this site doesn't have a clear idea of actual work environment.
    - Pressured into meeting "goals" that are essentially minimum requirements.
    - Currently in a bad position after meeting lots of attrition to workforce.
    - Overworking current staff where overtime is required to complete minimum amount of work.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the amount of work instead of trying to find ways around it. People can't have more work and be expected to produce at the same quality of work.

    Pros

    Travel opportunity, large network, decent pay for experienced hires, compensation between projects.

    Cons

    Travel required, strenuous work hours, lack of overtime pay.

    Advice to Management

    Don't push/pressure resources to jump into the first available project, but rather encourage resources (even experienced hires) to improve/expand skills by waiting for the right opportunity.

    Very Organized Company and provides huge opportunities.

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

    Pros

    People are great, amazing work-life balance, flexibility, work-from-home opportunities

    Cons

    Option to work from home is great in theory (and if that is the point you are at in life...e.g., just started a family), but weakens the company culture. However, I am an internal consultant so maybe in traditional consulting this is less of a prevalent issue.

    Advice to Management

    As much as Accenture is all about diversity, you still see the boys club in many sectors of the business which is discouraging.

    Pros

    They offer good benefits, a 15% off employee stock purchase program, somewhat good opportunity for growth, and good maternal paternal leave.

    Cons

    They suffer from a lack of engagement, poor corporate culture execution, the pay is below standard, there's a lack of training opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Engage employees, live up to corporate culture.
