I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

- Very smart people
- Interesting, varied work
- Able to deliver the highest quality of service to our customers and pull in experts from all over the world
- Great place to build a career and gain lots of experience in a short time
- Strong training and employee development programs
- Lots of vacation/paid time off
- People are always willing to help one another

Cons

- Poor work/life balance
- Expectation that you will be available and work 24/7 even when on vacation
- Some projects are scoped poorly and require heroic efforts to deliver for the customer
- As you become more senior, there are fewer and fewer opportunities and you are expected to become an expert at something and deliver the same project over and over
- Salaries for current employees do not keep pace with the market. New hires will often come in to the firm and make much more than people who have been there for 5 plus years

Advice to Management

- Re-examine salary zones for existing employees to ensure that they stay competitive
- Make it more acceptable for senior people to have better work-life balance. Late night, weekend and vacation work should be the exception not the norm.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Truly explored parts of my brain that I did not even use in my lifetime. Great interviewers - came at me from different sides. After 3 days I was really exhausted and about to give up when the said I had the job.

    Cons

    They did not buy me lunch, heck, not even a coffee. Maybe this was their way to show how tough they were. But really they have a heart of gold, but try not to show it at all.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to have a stiff upper lip.
