    I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    People Culture Career Mentoring program Superior Training program

    Cons

    The more you advance in your career to the next level the more unrealistic work-life balance it becomes Focus becomes on selling than work and you end up working to sell

    Advice to Management

    You burn people out and not enough done to support your talent such that they leave for other jobs with better pay and work conditions

    I worked at Accenture full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Their brand name and policies

    Cons

    If you can be your manager’s and career counsellor’s pet you would get promoted and be successful. If you cannot don’t even think about it. In fact this is the only firm where I have seen an MD working like a PA to another SMD. And I am not joking mate. And aah client management is excellent - they will win a big project, fill them with MDs and SMs and when the project cannot be delivered, get contractors and either get...

    Advice to Management

    Stop faking yourselves about how great an environment that is to work. You are nothing but a lying hierarchical company with no ethics or principles. Admit it and you still can fix it. I am sure this wasn’t this bad when it initially started.

    I worked at Accenture full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Good training opportunities, nice office, good support staff (helpdesk, IT, BSC etc.,)

    Cons

    Culture of bullying, Horrible people like Newan Tsang are given trusted management positions and all complaints against him go unnoticed, senior leadership only concerned about their incoming revenues, long working hours, no work-life balance

    Advice to Management

    Take action on employee's feedback. Remove people like Newan Tsang. Accenture Australia has a lot of ground to cover and compared to Accenture US or Accenture India where brand Accenture has a lot of value and respect

    I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Opportunity to travel globally for project work and many varied projects. Majority of colleagues are highly competent.

    Cons

    Crazy workloads and working hours with very unrealistic expectations - especially on non-client work.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting A to C in ridiculously short time frames - you are setting up a recipe for disaster.

      I worked at Accenture full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Great internal culture - lots of support in doing additional non-client work, charity work, etc. Upper management is always keen to connect and listen. Lots of support in the grad program. Accenture throws you into the deep when starting at a client site, which is great for people who excel in that type of environment. Great industry/market reputation - will really help when moving on from the company.

      Cons

      Salary is below market equivalent - the company relies on people not understanding their industry worth (part of the reason I left was when I realised the more interesting work and better compensation I would receive elsewhere). Whilst upper management is great, middle management (located at client site) is poor at connecting and is full of egos. Training in H&PS is incredibly limited and is given to management...

      Advice to Management

      Provide more training opportunities for analysts - these people are thirsty to learn and want to expand their skills. Make an effort at actioning the complaints and ideas people raise as there is a lot of talk, but little is done to improve bad company experiences.
