    Pros

    Highly invested in your training and development. Many socials and great chance to build professional network across industries. I highly recommend the firm.

    Cons

    It’s a relationships business, part of doing well at Accenture in the long run could mean being involved in sales.

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

    Pros

    The colleagues and seniors at Accenture are generally good and accommodating.
    Accenture is very accommodating when it comes to religious requirements.
    Accenture has lots of big clients working on cutting/bleeding edge technologies so if you are good you will get pulled into doing good stuff.
    Accenture is open to work from home on Fridays if you have a reason.

    Cons

    Accenture Consulting/Client & Market gets paid more compared to the technology colleagues.
    Accenture Technology resources are paid less compared to the market rate even though Accenture charges the clients a higher rate.
    You get pay rise only if you get promoted, heard this will be changing soon.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider the technology resources pay structure and compare it with the market rate. All technology resources doesn't need to be paid at the same level and can be paid based on their skills and chargeability. The performance achievement process should consider this. Pay rise shouldn't be dependent on promotions rather it should be dependent on performance. Hot skills bonus process and criteria should be made available to all colleagues.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - You're provided with the tools and support you need to shape and succeed in your career, but don't expect to be spoon fed. You own your career and you need to take responsibility for it.
    - The people you work with - some of the brightest and best people in their respective functions/practice areas
    - The incredible breadth of what we do - really exciting work that has real impact and genuinely improves the way the world works and lives.
    - Leading the new. Not just words. There is an expectation that people will question the status quo, challenge accepted ideas, innovate, and strive to create new solutions, regardless of their role or career level.

    Cons

    - It's an incredibly large and complex organisation - seems obvious, but you must be able to navigate the organisation, and you need to have strong relationship management skills to succeed.
    - It's fluid and agile organisation. It changes fast. You need to be comfortable in that kind of environment.
