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

    Pros

    - Mature processes in delivering projects and resources to clients.

    - Lots of professional development possibilities especially while on bench.

    - Learned some wisdom whilst in Accenture School (i.e. St. Charles, Heathrow, KL).

    - Internally it has great library of knowledge base & assets.

    - Militaristic command hierarchy.

    Cons

    - Militaristic command hierarchy

    - Some training sessions includes brainwashing and indoctrination.

    - 85% of our new experienced hire orientation class have left Accenture within 2 years (which indicates a very peculiar staff hiring and retention strategy)

    - Career progression is designed to benefit "Accenture Babies" (i.e. employees who's been with the firm since fresh grads).

    - Strange and unique "culture" (see bigtimeconsulting.org to understand culture).

    - In order to gain rapport or possibly a promotion, the culture demands unwavering loyalty to your superiors and a lot of time & perseverance at work (whilst not necessarily being productive).

    - In IT client projects the majority of work are brainless, and these generally fall under two categories: 1.) data collection, and 2.) chasing people for task completion. Accenture can only sell low-skilled workforce & roles to clients who doesn't want to do themselves such as Testers, PM (Project Officers really), and Architects (not really Architects, as they typically love to copy-paste client designs).

    Advice to Management

    To Senior Management:

    I have no right to say whether what you do collectively as Accenture Leadership is right or wrong, Accenture has been a very successful firm in creating jobs and increasing revenues in the past. However, I do believe that soon there will be a game-changer that can challenge this Accenture "way of life".

    To Experienced Professionals:

    Stay away from Accenture unless you're absolutely sure that you can use it as a stepping stone and can fit to their culture (see bigtimeconsulting.org to understand culture). Otherwise, be prepared for lots of frustrations and humiliations.
