    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Accenture full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on great projects with great people. Enormous company, you can get a network that is truly global if you work on it. Some processes are very pragmatic. Work life balance can be great (depends on client and project).

    Cons

    Can get shoehorned into projects you are not a good fit for. Some processes are overly bureaucratic and opaque (such as the promotion system) which can lead to frustration. Work life balance can be poor (depends on client and project).

    Advice to Management

    Improve the transparency of the performance achievement system. Ensure employees are aware that there are various avenues for support, sometimes line managers and career counselors have a conflict of interest with their reportees/counselees, causing isolation.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It does really feel like Accenture is leading in the area of technology and digital. Experience working at Accenture mostly depends on the projects you are on. It could be great. It could be bad. It could be a lot political and rat racing. Flexible working is great and you don't have to spend all time at the office - either client sites or work from home is encouraged. Nobody is looking after your every working... minute as long as you are delivering.

    Cons

    Salary rising is not as fast as one would hope for and bonuses are pretty low in comparison to the market. WBS and chargeability crap is really annoying.
