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

    Pros

    - People are always there for you, even if you've never met them before or they're in a different office
    - Colleagues are generally fun to work with
    - There are always opportunities to take up more responsibility
    - If you can navigate the organization, you have a lot of flexibility and autonomy in your work
    - Strong growth and great focus on the future

    Cons

    - It's hard to navigate the politics of the organization, and that will lead to you having great roles versus tedious and boring roles
    - It's easy to get trapped into a specialization that you aren't passionate about
    - There's always that unintelligent and overbearing manager that you have to work under

    Advice to Management

    Keep sales more accountable to delivery

    I worked at Accenture as an intern

    Pros

    Great camaraderie. Those who suffer together, stay together.

    Cons

    Accenture does not compensate well at all and fails to attract and retain talent. Managers are poorly trained and many MDs simply raise the whip, with little to no respect for personal time. Output is of mediocre quality as well. I am former OW/MBB and I can say that Accenture has oversold itself. Accenture is not held in high-regard by clients as well.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in people. Arrange for a management buyout, delist the company and operate as a partnership, allowing greater investment in wages and people.

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

    Pros

    - Great colleagues
    - Great technology
    - Great projects

    Cons

    - Everything was great until they suddenly decided to inform me that I failed my probation 2 days before it was to end.
    - There was no feedback regarding the incoming failure, and I was not given any chance to prove myself that the probation review about me was not justified.
    - HR intended to trick me to forgo the 2 weeks compensation I deserved for this sudden dismissal by advising me to resign on my own.
    - Unrealistic to suddenly expect someone to just accept a 2 day notice to leave the company.
    - Project lead extended working hours to 9pm everyday.

    Advice to Management

    If there is a performance issue or any kind of issue, there should be at least ample time and chance given to the employee to either get them to realign themselves to meet expectations or at least for them to prepare to start sourcing for a new role. Not this kind of treatment of unfair treatment.

    Pros

    Experience based on government projects, can't speak for the others:

    Some genuinely good people around. Learn what you can from them because they won't stay long.

    Good introduction into legacy Enterprise IT. Feel the pain and understand why the industry has long moved on from these outdated"best practices"

    Insight into how professional services firms generate profit. For e.g. churning at the lower levels, company lock in by not investing in training (mid-career guys get stuck, can't get a real technology job with PPT and excel as only skills), questionable business development practices.

    Good company to grow in if you're interested in the commercial aspects of IT delivery and business development. Terrible place if you aspire to be a technology professional.

    Cons

    Singapore office acts as an independent entity, separate from global leadership. You'll constantly receive materials regarding global initiatives to develop the consulting workforce, but sadly, none are implemented in Singapore. Most people will be stuck doing low value delivery work throughout their career. Senior consulting folks will try to spin off their work as "delivery consulting", but can't write complete sentences without grammatical errors. Cool story bro.

    Useless management consulting workforce due to a bad fit with the overall business. Not any fault of their own because they were sold a lie when joining the company.

    Can't claim transport even when traveling to remote data centres because you are given "Transport allowance".

    Mediocrity at it's finest, colleagues with > 10 years of IT experience can't troubleshoot mounting a NFS share. High performance, delivered.

    Advice to Management

    Enjoy your stock options while it lasts!

    Opportunity explore latest technologies , This too depends on the project you are deployed.

    In comparison to the hours you put in, the salary does not equate.

    Listen to the people on the ground.
