I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Services workforce opportunities provided the ability to minimize travel.
Challenging work.
Opportunity to meet great people in the industry.

Cons

Inconsistent senior management approach. Some lack depth and experience in service delivery, requiring a much greater burden on the managers within a given project.
Work/life balance has been poor for me for many years now. There is a lack if regard for personal time.

Advice to Management

Train your senior leadership before placing them into positions that require extensive knowledge of what we do and how we do it.

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

    Pros

    Great place to build a foundation for your career, many opportunities to do interesting work across a broad spectrum of industries and org functions, fantastic for the resume if you exit after a big promo (Manager, Senior Manager), ability to see and participate across the project lifecycle (from knowledge capital development to sales to planning to execution)

    Cons

    A lot of red tape, crappy pay unless you fight for it (get a competing job offer and they'll at least give you a mediocre bump, but be strategic bc they only do it once!), insular culture, promotions and annual ratings are a crap shoot, constant reorganization... most unfortunately, don't expect anyone at or above Senior Manager to abide by the "core values" because most are more concerned about their own career than their people at that point

    Pros

    Great learning opportunity for new employees.

    Cons

    No loyalty whatsoever to the employee. Manage your career or else.You owe your loyalty to yourself. Do not get sucked into the options game/deferred compensation. Get out when opportunities dry up.

    Advice to Management

    You have lost employee loyalty.
