I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

provides additonal training and development. IT can be a great place if and only if you get the right set of people in the practice.

Cons

You can get stuck working with highly unprofessional people and have no ability to manage out of the project. The mgt. in the Hyperion consulting practice stand clear of them.. Extremely abrasive & unprofessional..

Advice to Management

Try leading more often.

    I worked at Accenture full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Senior Executives and the office staff are above average - actually, I think I would just include everyone based in the San Francisco office! People know you and office visits are enjoyable. I hear this varies by location though. Lots of opportunities to grow and expand your skills.

    Cons

    Say people are a priority and yet continue to cut/reduce people programs. Local roles (within 50 miles) could cause you to be on the road two hours each way depending on the client.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on your people- your biggest asset. If people are happy, clients will be happy and that will lead to more consulting, services, and outsourcing opportunities for the Company.

    Pros

    Accelerated learning experience:
     - Diverse industry exposures

    Cons

    - Depending on groups, (aggressive) competitiveness to get what one wants over team's interets
    - Promotion highly dependent on career counselor, who has to sell/promote you on a 6-8 hours telcon call with their peers
    - Travel can be demanding especially for new parents
    - Identify Crisis given the constant shift of department objective, goals, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Set promotion quota at a more local level
