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

    Pros

    Accenture 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.

    Cons

    Travelling 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.

    I have been working at Accenture

    Pros

    Employees 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diffuse 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.

    Current Employee - Analyst  in  London, England

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

    Pros

    - Higher levels of responsibility vs other graduate jobs
    - Social, young company

    Cons

    - Major focus of work is change management, rather than traditional strategic consulting
    - Morale is low due to the terrible performance management system which favours staff who stay on same role, at same client for extended amount of time vs lots of different experiences
    - Bureaucratic, people play games
    - Lots of work outside of London - so based at client site Mon-Thurs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Empower junior levels
    - More promotions
    - Reconsider performance management system

    I worked at Accenture full-time

    Pros

    Big time clients, large project budgets, lots of training

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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