    "Great company"

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People are high quality, clients are top-shelf, and ability to learn / progress is outstanding. Rewards are good

    Cons

    Usual consulting drawbacks - locations and teams change. Progression at a senior level is about relationships as well as delivery (fairly standard, but consulting requires more work to get in front of these people than permanents). As with all big places, if you get stuck working for someone who's a bit challenging it can be tough. The hours / expectations of commitment are very large, and the pressure is high. But all in all - it's a great place

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on developing a sense of belonging within teams that work across accounts / clients. Pay people more

    Pros

    A superb company with a clear vision.

    Cons

    Not many; you feel respected and well looked after.

    Advice to Management

    Give a greater opportunity to flag poor management in a safe and friendly way; there were a couple of senior managers who let the team down with selfish decisions.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Accenture (More than a year)

    Pros

    work life balance
    wider network of colleagues
    flexible working

    Cons

    some departments treat diversity as a box ticking exercise
    management are untrained and unafraid of bias and discrimination

    Advice to Management

    Vet all management staff and listen to concerns of staff that do the job! Especially the UKI Recruitment team - Terrible leadership that flows down into the graduate and experienced hire team. They refuse to listen to staff, are very discriminatory without fear of backlash and are easy to terminate contracts of anyone that 'steps on their toes'. Contractors have no security

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    1) If you're part of the elite consultant group you'll keep getting promoted without any expertise in to leadership roles and live an amazing lifestyle at others expense.
    2) If you're friends and family to middle management then you too will keep getting promoted at dubious laddering sessions. But will become bitter and twisted.
    3) In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king. If you have a modicum talent one of the above might help your career provided it helps their career first.

    Cons

    1) Parking and commute nightmare
    2) Impressive looking buildings but fitted to a low standard and set out like a call centre
    3) Promotions, career development and training, is slow and not forthcoming as profit margins are tight and the model can only support a large volume of low people. Someone has to finance the cost of layers of management and the global organisation putting its hand into the till
    4) As a result of the above, there is a very negative culture, which you will very quickly discover

    Advice to Management

    No point providing advice if there will be no action.
