    Pros

    Accenture is a great place to work. I have personally had only excellent experiences with colleagues. Projects are interesting (though mainly focused on IT and business processes) and you get quickly the opportunity to grow in a project management role.

    Cons

    Accenture is a global company but the incentives and promotions structure makes it in fact a local company. At least in Europe it doesn't happen frequently to be assigned on a project abroad. If you create revenues for another geography, it isn't really appreciated and it won't help with promotion. Moreover, Accenture targets most of the time big clients, which means that if you are interested in more innovative or niche type of work, that will be quite unlikely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revise the incentives structure, and considering investing more in incubators.

    Pros

    At Accenture you can have opportunities to learn while working on projects. People are good and competent. They help you if required. Also there are lot of online resources build for Accenture employess to get help on project works and online communities of interest as well, where you can ask specific questions and if someone has worked on a similar project before they can guide you and share their experience with you. The workforces like Consulting and Solutions and may be Enterprise is better in terms of career growth and opportunities, so are better for a career at Accenture.

    Cons

    I work for Services Workforce and have found that there is no formal career growth process for Services workforce in improving their level in the heirarchy. The only possibility for Services people is to find new positions in the same workforce at a higher level and go through an interview process and approvals to move to a next level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of the career growth of Services workforce and facilitate Service people to move to next levels.
