    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Accenture full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a stable job in an area with not many jobs. If you're there longer than 6 months they would give you a raise of a few dollars per hour extra. Benefits aren't terrible.

    The company is very pro-LGBT rights. They actually do pride themselves of equal hiring opportunities and will not tolerate discrimination. So that's a plus.

    Cons

    You will work flex hours - meaning 44 hour weeks. Management does not make it easy to schedule around doctor's appointments and will not give time off for very many reasons. If you do get the time the managers will make you feel guilty and like your job is in jeopardy. They tend to make you feel like this anyway unless you perform very well.

    It's a call center job. They are never pleasant. This was the first and last call center I will ever work at. The hours were long. There was no work life balance.
    The client treats call center staff like idiots. They will come up with new cost saving ideas without asking staff about how this may affect customers. The client does not care about how customers are affected. The client and the managers do not care about how miserable the employees are. Morale is terrible and even the managers seem miserable. The client will come up with minuscule rewards for employees as opposed to offering something actually useful, like raises , bonuses, or time off.

    Very few people that work here aren't miserable.

    Prepare to have zero control over your actual work - you are being hired to perform as a robot. If you can't perform exactly as they want, prepare to have meetings about how to get your stats up. Prepare to have every second of your day tracked.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees. They are customer-facing and know your customers. If you treat them better and listen to them it's a win for call center employees and the customer.
