Cons

- Long working days.

- Partners can at times be very unpleasant if not arrogant to deal with.
- Projects are often staffed with a few knowledgeable people and many inexperienced staff.
- Extensive problems integrating experienced new hires into the Accenture culture. Collage hires appear to be better suited for their culture.

    Pros

    Accenture is a great company to excel your career. You are given a lot of responsibility at a rapid rate. Most of the employees are very competant and produce a high work product.

    Cons

    Very little work/life balance exists within Accenture's Consulting workforce. Long hours and weekend work are the norm. Don't expect to be rewarded for your efforts as Accenture pays on the low end in comparison to similiar firms. Overall Accenture is a churn and burn work environment that brings in bright, young go getters that get burned out in 2 years.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people better.
