I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Accenture has clients everywhere and the opportunity is there to get involved in really interesting work BUT it doesn't come easy, you have to network your way to everything.

Cons

Really low pay for the time commitment expectations in the MC practice. Also, hard to keep up with all the administrative tasks that are required of you to be rated highly.

Advice to Management

We understand that margins are important but don't do "whatever it takes" to maintain high margins at the expense of promotion opportunities for your deserving people.

    Pros

    Exposure to different industries. Good training opportinities

    Cons

    Performance review system installed by the company is really horrible. It is totally subjective and biased. Working with a manager who is either frustrated or up for promotion can be a disaster. At the end of the day he/she can say anything about individual contributors and there is no system installed to cross check and validate any assertion by such individuals. I believe many will share my observations across the board. Good contributors and performers go without unnoticed and without getting rewarded while those who are good at pretending and talking loud with zero knowledge of specific task at hand often get rewarded and promoted. I have personally seen peoples assigned to a project with zero knowledge of what needs to be accomplished. All it takes is for that person to be a good pretender and get favored. If it continues like this, the issue will have compounding effect on Accenture and its clients.

    Advice to Management

    Most higher managers climbed the ladder by enforcing and implementing a horrible system installed by the company; as such providing input to here is worthless.
