    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Flexible work arrangements, excellent benefits, good incentives for profit sharing/bonuses, fun environment.

    Cons

    Career advancement often based on popularity with management staff, base pay lacking compared to similar positions at other companies, promotion decisions based on need for more resources at different levels, rather than employees being ready to move to the next level.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation needs to be re-evaluated, as many employees are looking outside of the firm for better positions. Career progression needs to be based on ability, rather than popularity.


  2. "Great early career experience"

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

    Pros

    Strong reputation, good pay for young professionals, broad scope of opportunities, access to knowledge capital, many extracurricular activities (can be a pro or con depending on how much of a personal life you want to maintain)

    Cons

    No training budget, hard to say no when your plate is full, easy to get stuck in projects that aren't a good fit (all about billable hours)

    Advice to Management

    They already know what people like and don't like.
