    Pros

    It provides an excellent culture and benefits program.

    Perfomance evaluations are relative to others, so it's pretty unfair.

    Pros

    Lot of opportunities to grow, very good benefits, huge knowledge base (but you can get lost)

    Cons

    Poor collaboration, high level of stress to make money, resources to support the employee are there but are not very efficient, formal training is hard to be approved, multiple delivery methodologies in place with tons of documents but not too much support to put it in place since everybody is too busy, you are basically on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Make an effort not to transfer your stress to employees, create a real collaborative environment, use your global experience to sell new technologies.

    I worked at Accenture full-time

    Pros

    in the right position, flexible work arrangments are possible (i.e. remote) along with a flexible work schedule
    opportunities can be varied, providing a wide range of experience
    pay is decent
    benefits

    Cons

    Accenture speaks about mentoring, career counselling and coaching, but the environment does not reflect that, at least not once you achieve a level considered management.
    I saw advancement based on favouritism and word of mouth, rather than skills
    Too many people were protected, and able to keep high paying positions after brutal performance and errors, while others, that questioned or drove change, were labelled as trouble makers and driven out.

    Advice to Management

    start practicing what you preach. Drain the swamp
