I have been working at Accenture full-time

Pros

Very good branding, Accenture is very well known. This helps to constantly attract new people
If you start as a young graduate, maybe you will like to have some very strict processes and way of working for your first job(?)

Cons

Management by fear and pressure
Double language and backstabbing culture
You see too many people with no morale at high positions
Absolutely no respect for previous experience - experienced hires: think twice before joining!!
Processes and tools are extremely heavy and often do not bring value to customers nor Accenture
No possibility to improve the way of working, bringing new ideas is often considered as rebellion and punished by senior executives
Brainwashing and HR propaganda
No work-life balance, despite what they say in their web site and during interviews

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

    Pros

    You will get better people, good challenge, opportunity for onsite if you know buttering. Awards if you work like a donkey.

    Cons

    Management does not know anything about project management, resource management is worst, work life balance is poor, partners are the dumbest people on the planet, lots lots of overtime no appreciation.

    Advice to Management

    Try harder to keep your star employees on board and learn the fundamentals of project management, don't take credit for others work. Trust Your employees and stop enjoying the buttering.
