    Massive company with hands in all sectors and functions of work - but little care for the employee at the end of the day

    Pros

    - Because of the size of the firm, there really are opportunities to work across all sectors and functions. There's pure strategy work, and there's SAP implementation work. There's resources and private equity work, and there's FS and Retail work.
    - The compensation for "Management Consulting" or what's now known as "Accenture Strategy" is competitive vs. alternatives straight out of college

    Cons

    - Pockets of great people are often pushed out of the company due to a toxic work culture brought on by a grossly imperfect rating structure
    - Training and professional development are advertised, but not guaranteed - indeed, many go through their two year stint and are never allowed to go to training because "chargeability needs to stay high"

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people. True, there will always be a supply of eager young graduates willing to put up with the outdated and depersonalized management culture; however, it's more likely going to bite you in the long run.

    Pros

    Good company culture and methodologies

    Cons

    Lot of frivolous processes which can be avoided to save time and cost

    Advice to Management

    Rating meeting are not fair because they base everything on the representing lead's caliber to speak and represent instead of the actual employees who are represented

    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

    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 Management

    Fix all the cons and you're halfway there.
