    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 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Culture conversation and advertising was pretty.

    Cons

    Zero HR support, limited training, horrendous MD. I think the organization is great, but if you end up with a bad MD, there is little or no protection for you.

    Advice to Management

    My MD was removed after I left, but noone asked me for an exit interview. It would have been wise to have.

    Pros

    Absolutely nothing. Too long didn’t read; go to Deloitte. Don’t bother applying or interviewing here.

    Cons

    Without a doubt the worst and most highly dysfunctional place I’ve ever worked at in my entire career. Stay far away from this company unless you like being treated like garbage and enjoy being underpaid. Abusive (and disgustingly overpaid) senior management, inflated egos, corrupt and weak HR. Went to UofT and no work experience? Great! You will make significantly more than those with experience. Hard to count the number of people who actually care about you and your career development. It’s all about favouritism. Accenture preaches this “non-hierarchal model” and got rid of offices, yet there are special seats reserved for senior managers and the new CEO has taken up a meeting room and called it his own office when we already severely lack meeting spaces! He also has office staff running personal errands for him on a daily basis. Sad! That is just one fine example of how poorly treated office staff are. Analyst? You’re on the same boat. Newsflash to management: Slavery is over! I should also add that this new office that they are so proud of is so poorly designed. There are not enough meeting rooms and when you request one, special treatment is given to senior management. So many people are unhappy working here no matter which role, career level or how long they’ve been at Accenture. Accenture only cares about its image as it’s portrayed externally. Screams volumes that so many HR staff have up and left. It’s the same complaint over and over. Poor management, underpaid. It’s funny, Accenture prides itself in being one of the best consulting firms in the world yet can’t get their act together internally. Word of advice: go to Deloitte.

    Advice to Management

    If they care to listen, (which they don’t) they need to train senior management and give them a reality check. Get rid of the egos. Get rid of the hierarchy. Treat lower level employees as human beings. Pay overtime. Pay market value.
