- Contrasting styles within managment

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Convince managers to take a more holistic view of the company, rather than focusing on their own projects - management work within silos on their projects when some staff members could also contribute their skills to the wider Accenture community on new clients where they may have a specific interest.

    Pros

    At Accenture you can have opportunities to learn while working on projects. People are good and competent. They help you if required. Also there are lot of online resources build for Accenture employess to get help on project works and online communities of interest as well, where you can ask specific questions and if someone has worked on a similar project before they can guide you and share their experience with you. The workforces like Consulting and Solutions and may be Enterprise is better in terms of career growth and opportunities, so are better for a career at Accenture.

    Cons

    I work for Services Workforce and have found that there is no formal career growth process for Services workforce in improving their level in the heirarchy. The only possibility for Services people is to find new positions in the same workforce at a higher level and go through an interview process and approvals to move to a next level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the career growth of Services workforce and facilitate Service people to move to next levels.
