    I have been working at Accenture full-time

    Pros

    Performance Achievement is revolutionizing how we work and live. Our objectives are our own and we work from our strengths to achieve them. I've been working here since May of 2014 and can honestly say my career took off when they decided to end the practice of laddering and implemented Performance Achievement. I've been able to develop skills in artificial intelligence, public cloud and virtual reality in the last two years that I never would have believed myself capable of when I first joined. If you want to grow and learn and become a leader in the new, Accenture is the place.

    Cons

    Some of our most successful leaders from the days of laddering at the end of the year are struggling to adapt now that individuals have so much more autonomy and choice in how they deliver high performance. We've had some growing pains as those leaders find their way to the new or move on.

    Advice to Management

    Have faith in your people or they will doubt your ability to lead. When you over orchestrate you lose. That goes for wordy sales decks that no longer resonate with our clients as much as delegating how to do something as opposed to the objective. Less is more, loosen the reigns and let the creativity flow!
