    Good company for consultants, but not for tech people

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Sydney

    ProsGood company for consultants. Big projects. Reasonably long roles (12-18 months) to perform. Work life balance is quite okay. Benefits (overtime, training, career counselling etc) are quite good, training facilities can be (or not) advantageous when good faculties are there.

    ConsNot good for techies. Payment is far below the market rates. Can't have a well defined career: have to work on projects as they come, may not choose a specific technology/career path.

    Tuff but for good reason

    Team Leader (Current Employee) Canberra

    ProsAmazing development structure, but you need to push for it as it won't come too you.
    Works you too the bone but rewards your efforts in a well structure performance review process.

    ConsAccenture is a lifestyle choice as much as it is a job. This may not work for many people.

    Great for learning and extremely poor pay

    Senior Consultant (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat for newbies, there are some senior executives who actually listen to advice provided by those they lead,opportunities to work with some great clients

    Conspoor working conditions,they are trying promote the concept of women empowerment but the number of women in leadership are still quite minimum, experienced hires are hired for their expertise but not paid at market rates for it and no one listens to them.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPeople who come with experiences that are not gained at Accenture are extremely valuable-listen to them when they are unhappy or giving advice. Stop exploiting people because you are giving them the Accenture brand in return-Gen Y doesn't care about that anymore. With prices rising, to maintain the clothes, outlook and reputation that Accenture employees are required to, pay them enough.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
