    Brilliant team and hugely productive working environment.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsEmployees are highly valued in the work place and really developed and grown. The work life balance is very geared towards getting the work done at the office and not at home if avoidable.

    ConsWork load can sometimes throw a spanner in the works when it comes to full understanding or work flow choke points.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDiffuse the responsibility better across immediate leaders (team leaders etc). However the management growth style and development as well as the support function is very attentive.

    Its been a good experience working in Accenture

    Associate Software Engineer (Current Employee) Manchester, England

    ProsAccenture provides best training for starters. They provide good incentives if you work away from home office. You have to look for your own role within the company. This might be good if you want to work on particular area.

    ConsTravelling is must. Getting projects in your home office is always difficult. Hence work life balance is bit tough.
    Sometimes projects end up in between and you should be prepared to move on and look for another role which is bit annoying.

    If you look up "corporate" in the dictionary...

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) London, England

    ProsBig time clients, large project budgets, lots of training

    ConsPeople just keep their heads down and keep their jobs. There's no innovation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's not McKinsey or IBM! Find your own market identity instead of being all things to all people.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Job

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) London, England

    ProsGreat people passionate about what they do. Helpful staff make it an enjoyable place to be when away from home.

    ConsLong hours and lack of family life at times. Some senior management can be a little out of touch with the day to day demands on lowly staff members like myself!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore family time needed please!!

    ProsCulture, End to end capability, Innovative and dynamic, great client work, global capability, dynamic and forward thinking, senior management are forward thinking and adapt or anticipate market needs

    ConsPerformance ranking outmoded and devisive where individuals are forced ranked. This can become a somewhat non reflective measure of an individual's contribution or performance of an actual client project.
