Pros

Came in as an experienced hire in Oct 2010. Impressed with ACN's training, client base, and coworkers.Lots of interesting projects in my industry and specialization. Great pipeline of work. Most importantly, I feel that by working hard and smart, by networking, and through a little luck, the opportunity for advancement is high.I didn't feel like this in industry.

Cons

For me, nearly non-stop travel. Grinding stretches of long days, especially if there's an offshore team in the mix (5, 6AM calls, then onsite client work, then calls again till 10, 11PM). Tough to take time off as needed. Project management and client contacts can make your engagement fall along the continuum of "excellent and highly engaged" to "grin and bear it." Cliques of employees who have been at the firm for a while. None of this should be a surprise to anyone in consulting.

Advice to Management

I'm happy with the experience and am getting out of it what I hoped for. Proud to work here.

    Cons

    No overtime, always short deadlines, poor planning, many projects does not support work/life balance, unfair in promotion process, unfair system in providing end of the year feedback

    Advice to Management

    You guys never care about who are working for 5-10 yrs, they just like to have fresh college grads..bcas they can pay low...and the SEs and Managers they get to stick to their positions for 10-15 yrs.....they have to move on to give opportunities for others

    Pros

    Great people in management and peer group. Flexible with part-time, full-time options. Compensation is good. Good review process for promotion process.

    Accenture people deliver, even if it requires long, hard hours. Often travel to client sites is required an this can be exhausting and hard on family life.
