    Truly global network with a focus on the individual

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

    Global reach, large clients and great diversity and support for equality

    Lost in a large organisation, have to work for your client 9-5 M-F and then give overtime to Accenture without pay

    I worked at Accenture full-time (Less 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 before analysts despite advertising a first in-first served system.
    Performance cycle is different for analysts and is a time-based "progression" model - this discourages hard-workers and means you progress at the same rate as low performers. The career counselor model also assumes every employee has an active CC, which is definitely not the case.
    Management at client site was a full-blown boys club which resulted in bullying and intimidation for some of my colleagues.

    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.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - A global company where you can reach out to anyone in the world and they will help you or point you in the right direction.
    - High performance culture with talented colleagues
    - Challenging and interesting work
    - work with great clients (most of the time!)
    - Despite there being nearly 500,000, most of the time you, you still feel your contribution counts
    - supportive leadership
    - strong ethics and morals

    Cons

    - Very top level management need to communicate more
    - lots of great flexible working options, but the options aren't easily apparent at time

    Advice to Management

    Worker harder to communicate business strategy out to the teams
    Be careful what you communicate out
    Work harder to reward people with salary increases, not just bonuses
