    Former Employee - SAP Consultant in Toronto, ON

    I worked at Accenture full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement (up to you to make it) - there is also some luck involved
    Majority of people are very competent and intelligent
    Very flexible and agile for such a large company
    Work with some very big clients

    Cons

    Compensation for Analysts not very high
    Promotion system has a lot to do with project size and role perception
    Layoffs affect even high performing employees
    As much as work life balance is spoken about, it is not realistic to think you can achieve a good balance as well as maintain a high performance rating

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of time off if management has the foresight to hire enough casuals to cover for you (hint: doesn't happen often). There were celebrating performance points until they were taken away. My job is Monday-Friday with weekends and statutory holidays off.

    Cons

    Very poor management, decrease in employee benefits, abysmal work-life balance, disorganised. You name it! This was a decent company to work for several years ago, don't even consider it today.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix all the cons and you're halfway there.
