    I worked at Accenture

    Pros

    Great Management team. They have work from home programs that are great, specially when living out of town, bad weather, kids etc.
    I worked there for over 2 yrs, worked from home 5 days a week, went into the office once per month.

    Cons

    Below average pay " regardless of positions "
    Working 4-6 clients at once and still being paid the same as some people working 1-2 clients.
    They longer you work there, the more clients you are trained on.
    And every client has a different QA expectation making it hard to switch back and forth in a QA script from one call to the next. Like speaking 6 languages!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to pay more based on the number of clients your handleing

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, great perks. Good environment and great pay

    Cons

    Scheduling is a nightmare, the hours are not bad if you dont mind working 45 hours a week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    dont pull your training classes to compensate the actual trained employees. It's unnerving to new employees

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

    Pros

    The people here are some of the most friendly and down to earth that you'll see in the strategy consulting sector. I met with and interviewed with many other firms where I frequently got a pretentious sense of being from the employees. Accenture was as friendly and welcoming as it could get. The interview process is fair- like any other that you can expect from a consulting firm, only they tried their very best to make you feel less stressed/ uncomfortable during it, while many other firms thrived on this. The compensation is very fair between starting/ end of year bonus and additional benefits packages. Overall a great and supportive firm to work for with unparalleled training processes.

    Cons

    Can't say anything here- as long as you are well prepared for interviews and for the consulting lifestyle, you will have a great time. Of course the travelling and work is busy, but time off is fair and benefits are strong. Most of all, your teams make the work pure fun.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to push a "small firm" feel that I've seen- like individual cars for people returning home from events, Christmas cards and one-on-one mentoring. Despite Accenture being such a large firm, you always feel like you are getting individual attention and care to make your experience the best it can be.

    I worked at Accenture full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities to work in different industries, different projects, different roles.
    Pretty good pay.
    Fast track to an executive title.

    Cons

    Stretch model which really means get on any bloody project now.
    No help from HR/TFS. They throw you spreadsheet and you need to report back to them with your applications lol.
    People who do work get held back so that they can continue doing work.
    People who shout and make a lot of noise get fast tracked for promotion.
    Hit or miss.
    Be ready for high uncertainty and variability.
    Be ready to get on a plane if no local projects.
    Be ready for no work/life balance (12 hour days + weekends) if you want the promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. =)
