    Pros

    You get to network with lots of people. Acknowledgment of work is duly done.

    Cons

    Growth scope is less. Too many stakeholders. Long hours. Pay sometimes not market competitive. Difficult to find answers to simple questions. Too bureaucratic at times

    Advice to Management

    Makes things simple. Give loads of training. Have more networking events. Make salary competitive. Try niche consulting. Make it fun to work!!

    Advice to Management

    Too many presumptions and not enough investigation of facts. Caught up in its own bubble

    I worked at Accenture full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Great place to learn about how big projects and organisations work and how to get things done in a complex environment. Some really good lessons to be learned here, especially early on in your career. Has standard ways of doing things but plenty of flexibility - it's not an organisation that is dragged down by its own red tape (but often you'll have plenty of the customer's red tape and processes to deal with). Overall...

    Cons

    It has a focus on doing big projects with big organisations, so the nature of its customer base often means that a great many of its people (and probably you) will be working with the kinds of older technologies that its customers use and need help running, improving, expanding and upgrading. But often there are interesting things to be done among all of that. Although it's a technology company - that doesn't mean that...

    Advice to Management

    Focussing on big customers and scale comes with a risk of low diversity in terms of technology, methodology, and new ideas. You can do innovation hubs and workshops, and you can buy a few companies to try to buy some cool kids, but it may also be time to commit to selling some smaller work to non-traditional customers.

    Pros

    Great company to work with. In my department alone (Pricing), the technical skills that once can gain is impeccable.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons at the moment.

    I worked at Accenture

    Pros

    Work with large, established global clients Mostly smart, enthusiastic people who join the company especially the grads - very high quality and intelligent Opportunity for interstate and international assignments with great exposure High performers get recognised Doing whatever it takes to ensure delivery is successful (great for the client, at the cost of its best employees)

    Cons

    Some projects have unrealistic timelines and poorly staffed resources - resulting in poor client satisfaction, overworked team members, no work life balance Implementing old, outdated technologies Lack of variety of work but given the illusion of “interesting work” (no idea who actually works on those?) Coerced to working over time and very late including weekends but not allowed to charge actual hours worked - May...

    Advice to Management

    Being truly human is more than just having training and a slogan and newsletter sent by HR but actually practising it with the people including having the guts to have honest conversation with clients.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - Good work culture that continues to get better - Lots of [sometimes] interesting clients - Ability to move around

    Cons

    - Basic technology, even make AI/ML boring - Too many lies within and between teams and especially to clients - Absolutely terrible pay for the technical ability required for alot of roles. Your paid like a graduate consultant, but if your technical you do way more than any of the and should be paid for it.

    Advice to Management

    There appears to be a culture of compulsive lying, even when there doesn't need to be. Yes sometimes you have to delay for time, but alot of the time even when the client would understand lies are the default. its a bad culture to be in.
