    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    compensation package for employees is fine (not great).

    Cons

    C level white elephants should be thrown out which are popular for their shoddy work of not getting there job right (i.e. getting new projects)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should held responsible for not getting projects (they should be fired rather than people at lower levels). As C level folks couldn't win projects, their effects are seen by employees of subsequent levels (Sr. Mgr, Mgr, Cons, Analysts) who were asked to leave.

    Pros

    Some really great people, huge database of online learning and skills packages, lots of work experience

    Cons

    required to work 8 hours due to contract Accenture had with the client, but only paid to work the regular 7.5, very difficult to move up, services workforce was very irritating when given consulting work as no access to office space or laptop or much assistance.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    - On-going training is great. There are many opportunities to learn about new technologies to enhance and improve your current skillset
    - Meet lots of people on different projects.

    Cons

    - Extensive travel. You may be required to travel weekly to a location for a number of years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Some flexibility for out of town work assignments. The option of working 4/5 days a week out of town and one day at home location - it would help with work/life balance.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time

    Pros

    Great range of people to work with. Established processes exist in the organisation. People are always available to help and many are smart.

    Cons

    People who expect to be spoonfed will not like the company. It expects people to learn how to be resourceful (if they are not already). Too much reliance on offshore skills will lead to onshore people to lack certain knowledge.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great, friendly and down-to-earth people who come across as genuine compared to other firms that I've worked with/interviewed. Opportunity to specialise in an industry, opportunity for overseas training, projects are often demanding/interesting and varied but you learn a lot in a short space of time. Salary is above market. Management supports your aspirations and learning goals.

    Cons

    The projects you are assigned to may not always align with your interests

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior managers/MDs should sell more work aligned to employee's allocated group

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Accenture have many standard practices which will cater to the needs of agile, waterfall,ADL etc., kind of methods and it has also developed its own standard practices which helps the employee to execute his or her duties in a way which will create win win situation for the client..

    Cons

    Accenture has got so many official formalities like training and other initiatives which will keep you distorted however this is not an hindrance you just have to manage, Salary is standard across posts so this is not something which we can influence..Tasks are going to be challenging and it will need your good discretion to treat priority and non Priority so to meet all the clients expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should send the clear communication forehand of the client expectations since the subordinates are not aware even the slightest perceptions which is getting built on oneself..

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Reputation - having Accenture on your CV is globally beneficial
    Opportunity to learn - unlimited opportunities to learn from client work and from your colleagues
    Exposure to best practice methods

    Cons

    Performance management is a flawed process, the noisiest folk tend to get the higher ratings and the promotions
    Work life balance is not good - learning to say no is respected and necessary

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to walk to walk the walk when it comes to living the culture, in particular respecting the individual.
