Advice to ManagementAdvice

Convince managers to take a more holistic view of the company, rather than focusing on their own projects - management work within silos on their projects when some staff members could also contribute their skills to the wider Accenture community on new clients where they may have a specific interest.

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

    Pros

    Hard to get fired from.
    Accenture will carry you for a long time on the bench
    Easy to hide in a large company
    - All the above are good if you are good at politics and bad at work.

    Cons

    Very Long hours
    No work life balance
    Do not question SE's who don't know much. They are there because they joined out of college and have been there long enough
    HR rules the company. Not the people who earn money
    Very limited promotion avenues for experienced people
    Old boys club
    Lots of politics
    The management sells a project cheaply and then expects people to work double the time to compensate for the bad project estimation
    Low Salary
    Promotion based on how many bls you kiss,
    Accenture does not discriminate against women - However, it only promotes women who think like a man!

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
