    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Large company with a lot of assets and an excellent client list. You will get exposed to other leaders. CEO is a woman and there is an actual approach to equality in this organization.

    Cons

    Meat grinder culture means that you may not always find yourself working with the best, just the most likely to stay in Accenture. Pay is only ok for high value workers if you do not negotiate a Managing Director role.

    Advice to Management

    Smooth our your hierarchy. Managing Directors, or partners, are a thing of the past. They create a distinct class of workers and encourage a meat grinder culture for Senior Managers, Managers, and Consultants. This culture filters out the workers with high growth potential or worse, converts them into abusive autocrats if they stay. Send the baby boomers to early retirement, drop the investment bank mentality.

  10. "Good starting point, but opportunities for interesting work and development slow as time goes on"

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Culture & Values

    • Compensation and Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Management Consultant in Toronto, ON
    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Accenture full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Company is quick to evolve Consultants are no longer laddered The work can be really cool depending on the practice and location

    Cons

    A lot of random extra busy work Middle manager quality varies, many "age into" their roles and aren't good at managing projects

    Advice to Management

    Get away from building slides, there is a ton of waste because consultants only know how to communicate through decks Consider and act on culture issues - 360 feedback was removed from the process and as a result managers are acting blindly unless analysts and consultants make their feedback known
