    Pros

    Accenture is a very good company to work with. The culture is too good at Bangalore. You can chose to either grow in management or at a technical career path. Pay is good and if you are real good at what you are supposed to do, you will be recognized more. True cosmopolitan culture.

    Cons

    I dont have any cons for now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    - Working with bright people across countries and cultures

    - It's great to be process-driven but not when it becomes bureaucratic - which is what happens very often

    I worked at Accenture full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Accenture is a great company to work for. It provides ample opportunities to learn and enhance your skills. The company also has great values and some amazing leaders. Starting salary is good.

    Cons

    Growth can be slow, depending on the kind of support you get from your counsellor. Not the best model for growth and promotions. As a result, financial growth can also be very slow. The company also does not have good HR. It's more friendly to the management than to the people. Work-life balance is horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make HR more people friendly, looking after the interests of the employees.
    Make performance management process more transparent.
    Improve work-life balance.
