    I have been working at Accenture

    Pros

    Global community, capable, hard working colleagues. Great opportunities to travel all over the world and work with colleagues from many different cultures.

    Cons

    The personal demands are huge, particularly the more senior you are. There are often unacceptable demands to work at weekends, not take holiday etc.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Accenture

    Pros

    1. Fantastic leadership talent and very smart people all around
    2. Tremendous training at all levels including partners - they have a full fledged University near Chicago IL with 5 star dining facilities.
    3. You are actually penalized if you don't complete trainings on time !! a great way to ensure employees take full benefits of their billion dollar annual training spend.
    4. an inherent sense of deep pride in employees onsite/offshore
    5. Absolutely no comaprison with offshore pureplays (where I worked before) on brand, processes, comp and talent

    Cons

    1. Large global firm but very well managed
    2. Processes are "designed" to engage and win large complex deals so takes some time to engineer them downwards for smaller deals but can be done with some effort/learning
    3. Very difficult to work for pureplays after working here. Extremely choosy employer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More networking events with senior management would help better integration
    More Senior Executive /Partner promotions a must to retain talent.
