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

    Pros

    Good brand name to have on your CV

    Cons

    very little say in the type of work you do, chargeability is KING (regardless if the work is building skills in your field), promotions are based on personal relationships with senior management not experience, no emphasis on training, low pay considering number of hours worked and travel expectations

    Advice to Management

    Start respecting and valuing your employees, promote based on merit to stop devaluing what the job titles actually mean

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

    Pros

    Valuable experience to take to your next job, which allows you to move up your career ladder. Lots of people so you’re bound to find someone you get on with

    Cons

    Lots of promises about raises, promotions, and type of work you get. About 30-40% of it is true, the rest is always “stuck in the pipeline”

    Advice to Management

    Cutting employee costs to boost KPIs and profits only gets a team so far

    Slightly less pay than contracting but slightly better than average street pay.
