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

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on some of the biggest and the best projects in the country. Flexible working arrangements. Move within cities, countries when you like.

    Cons

    Long hours sometimes. Promote the use and implementation of the latest technologies. Perhaps some better tools for estimations and costing would help.

    Keep winning

    Pros

    Great exposure if you get dealt a good hand

    Cons

    If you work in the services or solutions workforce, get out asap!

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating services and solutions as the dummies. Give them equal opportunity for promotions.

    Pros

    Multinational organisation with job security

    Cons

    Have to work full time for your client, then give your free time to Accenture to complete your work for the firm. No work-life balance

    Advice to Management

    Promotions should be assessed in a fair and open matter, it's all behind closed doors and you have to give your life to a MD to progress at all

    Pros

    Can be a good place to learn new skills and work on new opportunities. Good people and generally open to helping, if not flat out on “sold Client work”

    Cons

    Weak leadership and management. Grow the wrong leaders and often fail to understand the industry segment they operate in. Lack of training due to sold work, and inability to get off Client work. Relentless hours even weekends. A lot of travel, if you don’t like travel. Low pay compared to industry and benefits are not as good. A lot of “lip service” paid to their own policies. Talk of “no vender bias”, but all SI’s have vender bias. Only provide “middle of the road”solutions not leading edge, as never challenge themselves to provide the best capabilities for clients - they stick with what they know. Sometimes the solutions provided are not the best for clients.

    Advice to Management

    Grow your management from bottom up, with appropriate programs. The current ones are mediocre and leads to a lot of senior staff struggling in basic leadership and management. More of a team focus rather than individualism.

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

    Pros

    Loads of opportunities, challenging environment, great exposure to top management and C Levels, driver seat in transformational programs

    Cons

    Mass delivery model, quality in delivery has taken an hit over time because of competitive market driven by indian players forcing us to push price down and commoditize IT and our people, not always a "best people" culture anymore to support the massive growth.

    Advice to Management

    The promotion model driven by slots is probably the most frustrating in the industry and drives good people away considering it became easier to get hired as experienced rather than to grow internally

    Pros

    Very diverse and cohesive culture - lovely people

    Cons

    Relatively low pay for the top performing grads that they select; not exciting projects; can be political; you may be ignored; big, internally-very-slow company

    Advice to Management

    don't let people sit around and get bored - that's not leadership
