Doesn't Recommend
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

- Salary, ACN provide above average salary than its peers
- Brand, Good name in the market gets you in front of most business leaders without much effort

Cons

- Association with a partners than the goodwill of the customers or your value addition really matters
- There is a famous term used in Accenture Consulting known as POTA i.e. pulled out of thin air. Most of the Indian business leaders trust the brand hence don't question the hypothesis of ACN management strategy, conclusions and roadmap. Those who do throw them out of their offices as quickly as they can.
-India domestic business practices are very average sold at premium rates
-Foul language especially derogatory remarks against female are most common in close room all male discussions within the New Delhi DLF office

Advice to Management

-Bring same professional aptitude as in west especially in US practice to IDB
-Evaluate people based on the value they bring to the firm and customer, not how they dress and how many people they know in Accenture

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Pay is decent out of college
    Traveling can be a plus
    Lots of different business/career paths
    Lots of "training available"

    Cons

    Lack of career path
    Dog eat Dog system
    No one looks out for your interests
    Only focus on getting staffed regardless if you want to take the role or not

    Advice to Management

    Focus on career path, try to explain what they can do instead of just focusing on getting that first role. Training is pathetic and out dated
