    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.

    Massive company, with loads going on and potential to grow your career.

    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.

    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.

    Culture, 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

    Cons

    Performance 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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Measure project team performance

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Long 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 ManagementAdvice

    More family time needed please!!
