    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people at Accenture are great to work with. They are incredibly smart, outgoing, and eager to work in teams to get the job done. Generally, workdays are 8 - 10 hours, and, if you're traveling, you can work from home on Friday. Personally, I have never had a problem taking vacation as long as advanced notice is given.

    Cons

    It is a pretty big company, and if you're not outspoken enough, you can easily get lost in the shuffle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Moderation should be better, Provide more personalized, honest and regular feedback

    Pros

    -Managers are very helpful when in need.
    -Good hikes and very good management
    -Got to learn very good skills from peers.
    -All the employs helped me in developing my career.
    -Relocation to desired city is the best option they provide.

    Cons

    -When you don't like working in a project, shifting from that project was really difficult for me.
    -Office culture really depends on the manager of the project, luckily I haven't got a bad one.
    -Work life balance may not be good for under-performance employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Company was employee friendly few years ago but these days its imposing lot of constraints on the employees (India) due to which many employees are shifting the company.

    Pros

    lots of new opportunity to learn. depends upon the project and your luck. friendly environment. helpful people.

    Cons

    everything depends upon managers. onsite/promotion/opportunity will depend upon managers who are sometime incompetent. most of them are not, but some of them are. also a lot of politics. but i guess thats everywhere

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take care of your employees. don't take them for granted.

    Pros

    Lots of clients locally and globally.
    Hard work is always recognized unless your manager is on micromanaging & witch hunting mode
    Lots of good smart people around you to connect with and build a life time network

    Cons

    work life balance will be challenging in some of the projects
    Not all projects are lead by good managers
    Too many processes and procedures but i guess they are required due to the scale of operations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire the right people. Do not compromise on quality because of quantity
