Pros

Great people and good managers who care about your personal development. Good internship program with lots of social and professional events with other interns. Very generous pay for interns. Accenture works with you to find good location that's right for you. There is a weekend trip to the Accenture training facility for all interns, which was really fun and a good way to meet other interns and get a feel for what training is really like for full-time employees.

Cons

Internship program doesn't always place you on projects that are close to what you would be doing after graduation. Also, a lot of interns are not given enough assignments so you have to search for something to do to fill your 8 hours every day.

Advice to Management

Reduce amount of red tape and bureaucracy.

    Pros

    Excellent pool of employees, great knowledge network - always opportunities to learn from and share knowledge with others. Strong methodology, culture encourages excellence. Accenture is constantly reinventing itself, which has become increasingly challenging as the company has grown. Hands-down, the best consultancy with the strongest commitment to quality and client satisfaction. The industry and service line model has improved over time, and works reasonably well - especially when compared to other organizations.

    Cons

    Challenging up or out career model, tools leave much to be desired, compensation is poor relative to other employers for a given skillset. Metrics-driven approach to managing drives poor decisions when taken out of context.

    Advice to Management

    As an organization, Accenture has developed a strong, positive culture, with motivated employees in a challenging work environment - however, metrics used to make promotion and compensation decisions are not balanced.
