    I worked at Accenture full-time

    Pros

    - Globally dispersed
    - well known
    - They have all the technology

    Cons

    - Do not see departments as equally important
    - Respect is based on your level
    - watch out if you are being bought, be wise and be clear with the terms, do not sign unless everything in question is in black and white
    - Technologically complicated and there are times it's nonsense
    - You have to deal with a lot of Politics
    - hard to find the policies and procedures with their matching responsible owners of each step

    Advice to Management

    have a spy on the ground for you to know what's really happening so that you could:
    - save on cost
    - keep the right people
    - improve on the process and make it consistent

    It's not just the bottomline...

    I worked at Accenture full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Besides being well-known for their above-average salary packages and great benefits, you will find one of the most conducive work environments here - purely due to the great people. I not only met new colleagues, but made a ton of friends here whom I still keep in touch with closely even after my departure.

    Cons

    Sometimes work hours can be long but it's purely on project basis. The on-job learning curve may be steep according to some but I found it to be acceptable.

    Advice to Management

    If possible, please get your Technology HR team to contact me, as I would love to rejoin! Cheers
