    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Accenture Australia:
    - Brand
    - Training opportunities
    - Access to internal and 3rd party knowledge
    - Strong market position and reputation in Systems Integration

    Cons

    Accenture Australia:
    - Moving more and more towards the bodyshop model (eg. putting management consultants on systems integration projects)
    - Poor comparative compensation and benefits
    - Poor talent acquisition and retention; reflected in top-heavy hierarchy and shallow pool of talented analysts
    - Lack of credentials in the management consulting space compared to other geographies
    - Quality internal services increasingly disappearing and/or moving to Dalian
    - Chargeability more important than employee growth and satisfaction

    Advice to Management

    Accenture Australia:
    Be honest with your people. It's one thing to be up-front about the fact that you're unlikely to be doing real consulting work, but completely another to be told you'll be leveraging and growing your core skills only to be placed on projects that have absolutely nothing to do with your skillset.
