Great Opportunities if starting at Accenture, but they dwindle as you continue to move up the corporate ladder

Long hours and continuing to get get more bureacratic since the company went public.

    I have been working at Accenture

    Pros

    The best reasons are for the Experience, Network, and Professional Development opportunities.

    Cons

    Travel can impact one's ability to balance life at home with family and friends. Compensation, while moving towards more competitive, still can lack behind similar industry work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    These folks are smart and have run a successful Fortune 500 business for several years... generally mastering the art of managing Wall-Street expectations and our core business.

    I have been working at Accenture

    Pros

    - People working on project teams
    - Degree of freedom on the project
    - Interaction with client executives
    - Generally interesting project work
    - Organization is flexible if I want to move positions within the firm
    - Accenture foundation does a lot of non-profit work, which makes the firm attractive to me
    - Overall, compensation and benefits are generally acceptable
    - Career paths are well-defined and everyone can find their niche
    - Generally, very respectful behaviour between co-workers
    - Little politics within peer group despite "up or out" principle
    - People are generally very responsive to requests and are happy to help and provide input

    Overall, Accenture is a successful company and known brand name in the consulting and tech industry.

    Cons

    - Large organization and all the administration that comes with that
    - Work/life balance heavily depends on the intensity of the project
    - Out-of-town travel after a couple of years can be quite a burden
    - Everyone believes I work in IT
    - Complex operating model that is hard to explain to people outside the firm, e.g. clients, business partners, friends. However, most organizational re-alignments have little impact on the type of work for the individual. I changed alignment at least 5 times in 7 years but continued with similar projects and almost the same individuals.

    Overall, Accenture has only a few downsides compared to other companies I experienced, in particular client companies. None of them have been viable alternatives to change jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Show more leadership
