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

    Pros

    Benefits are good, but they can improve. They don't compare to benefits incompanies like Facebook, Microsoft, Google, etc. Retirement savings are matched up to 6%. That's one of the best benefits.

    Cons

    The base pay is much lower than the market.
    Oneof the most frustrating things is that you don't have sick leave days, so you will have to use your PTO hours to cover any eventuality.

    Even though there are career counseling, the counselors just follow up because they have to, but none really cares if you're developing yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Salaries are low. You always see the news about how much the company is making in profit but you don't see that reflected in your paycheck.

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

    Pros

    - A lot of variety and career opportunities
    - Can move ahead quickly
    - You get assigned a career counselor - I've never had so much support for my career anywhere I've ever worked
    - Healthcare is so so, but the paid maternity leave is awesome and there's flexibility for a good work/life balance
    - Hardworking colleagues, but not the type that throw you under the bus to get ahead. It's all about working together to have a successful client relationship.

    Cons

    -They low-ball on a salary (as do many though), so don't be afraid to negotiate.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in operations! I know we always get put on the back burner but it would be nice to have efficient applications and programs to work with. We have to do a lot of manual work for a company that prides itself in innovation.

    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!
