I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Decent pay for entry level
Decent benefits for entry level
Decent bonus stucture
Excellent learning potential

Cons

Compromised Work/Life balance
High stress project timelines
High employee turnover
Lack of motivated and qualified talent
Slow promotion ladder (unless you work a ton and kiss ass)
Weak salary increases year over year and inline with promotions
Poor career guidance
Dog eat dog atmosphere between on project resources

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Instead of hiring to hit a certain number of resources, try hiring competent and talented resources. Level out the compensation scale across the United States (a first year analyst in Ohio makes about 35-40% less than an analyst in New York). Understand that the kiss ass mentality to get promoted and raises to be part of the "Good ole boy" network is sabotaging your firm.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good place to learn, support available, great attitude from co-workers, ability to contribute from early on if you earn it. Lots of perks such as team meals, phone bills etc.

    Cons

    Will be expected to work late/ weekends if client needs it, big focus on promotion/ laddering detracts from collegiate atmosphere by placing peers in competition with one and other

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management can seem quite distant when working from a client site, especially those in the upper echelons

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

    Pros

    Competitive compensation, 2 Work from Home days per week!

    Cons

    Non-competitive bonus/raise structure/ Stagnant expansion resulting in over saturation of Analyst level workforce, resulting in low possibilities to advance due to work ethic (More related to turnover)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Align raises to company's economic growth, at least to cover economic inflation
