    I worked at Accenture full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The training material have interesting courses.

    Cons

    Horrible coaching and mentoring system, promotions are made politically not by the person performance . No life balance. Realocation process weak where you need to be friend of someone to be have a project to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice, they will never change their behavior. The culture code paper accepts everything but in reality it not happens. The concept of fiefdoms within the company is too strong.
