    I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    * Brand value, job security. * Plenty of projects for any named skill, facilitating technical growth. * Decent budget for fun activities, team outings etc.

    Cons

    * No option to choose the primary skill for freshers. * Lack of flexibility with respect to shift timings, job location. * Appraisal ratings depends more on impression on supervisor, months at level, budget etc rather on the actual performance, which is one of the last criteria considered. * Lack of onsite opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    * Give more weightage to employee performance. * Give credible reasons for the rating given to employee, don't cook up random policies to explain.

    Pros

    Everyone is very helpful and open Very inclusive and diverse company Lot of opportunity

    Cons

    Your job may involve a lot of travel. Usual travel is you leave on a Sunday night and come back on a Thursday night. And that can be every week depending on what you are working on. High expectation Billable focused. It is a consulting firm so for every hour you don't bill the client, they lose money

    Advice to Management

    Manage travel expectations with clients better. It will be great if we can travel every other week.
