    I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The people are supportive, and encouraging. The company has always provided ample training and prep for change, although there are considerable changes, the company provides notice and effective communication for individuals to prepare. It's a global company and the opportunities are boundless. I have seen people travel all over the world for work, and I've seen many people develop and move into promotions. Gender-balanced workforce by 2020 is the Global initiative. Benefits are top notch. If you are looking for community involvement and employee support groups like LGBT, Innerfaith, social, live well etc there is something for everyone interested.
    Full time = 40 to 44 hours weekly (44 is fairly common).
    The company is future-focused and leading edge with digital transformation.

    Cons

    No feedback. The best employer I've ever had.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support and show encouragement, it means so much!

    I worked at Accenture full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    My direct capability area leadership team was amazing, rewarded and recognized me for my contributions, and selflessly pushed me to expand my horizons.

    All the success I am now experiencing in my industry role was due to the training and knowledge gained during my time at Accenture.

    Accenture really tries to practice what they preach (all these best practices) and the global network is truly impressive with people who are willing to help you in a heartbeat.

    I loved having alot of opportunities to do and learn more outside of core consulting projects - helping to build the local Accenture community, getting involved in asset development, learning development, practice operations, recruitment, business development...etc.

    The Kx (knowledge exchange) was the best thing ever - so much thought capital that can be accessed to help enhance our thinking.

    Cons

    Dedication and long hours comes hand in hand with strategic consulting projects - while I don't regret all the hours put in to excel quickly in the formative years of my career (I knew what I signed up for and took full advantage of it), work/life harmony was difficult but when you enjoy the people you work with and the work you're doing, work and life kinda meld together nicely.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on helping people succeed and practicing positive leadership. Be flexible in making decisions that help build local skills and optimize chargeability, even if we are a tad short on target CCI.

    I worked at Accenture full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on projects.

    Cons

    Odds are project won't be local. Poor leadership and management results in you working lots of overtime that you mostly don't get paid for.

    Advice to Management

    Need to take better care of employees.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been at Accenture for 10 years and it is the best place that I have worked. While the work to start may not be the most exciting there are lots of opportunities to move into different divisions or departments that will keep things interesting. Lots of support from both management and co-workers, definitely a strong team atmosphere.

    Cares about employees, lots of site events including boat tour, team competitions, theme days and we get a lot of free food!

    Get lots of hours.

    Cons

    Work can be challenging at first, but with support staff and some time targets are attainable.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you.

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

    Pros

    Free Training , Decent salary for middle management , Good teams

    Cons

    You are on your own in your practice , not worthwhile in the long term due to work life balance , you are on the road 4 days a week so forget having a family , over worked to say the least , no relevance of experience to the work you do ( your could be a devops person who will have to do networking and the expectation is that you will excel ) , focus is on large organisations hence the agility of mid market clients does not exist , you are just a cog

    Advice to Management

    stop using the cookie cutter methodology , do things to include people and not for the sake of just doing it
