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

Pros

Lots of opportunity to work in any field / location. Meritocratic annual compensation adjustments, tied very tightly to performance reviews.

Cons

There is a 5% chance you will get formative feedback outside of the annual review process. There are so many people, the HR protocols & organization have grown ponderous & unwieldy. Oh & btw, HR is now managed out of Argentina.... "huh?"

Advice to Management

Provide more feedback more frequently. Which doesn't have to come in the form of compensation / perf rewards, but MUST come frequently / deeply.

    Visa restrictions need to be relaxed. Lots of good talent is lost when visas are renewed or not approved each year.
