Despite the prestige of its name, Accenture is a company below expectations. No work - life balance, no flexibility, low salary and even lower career progression.

In almost 15 years of experience in big companies, Accenture is absolutely the worst company ever to work for. Management is corrupted, not transparent at all but mostly not professional at all. Lack of ethic and lack of respect towards emplyees is unbelievable. Progressing within the company is a dream they let you believe at the beginning, before discovering that the contract will not even be with Accenture directly and that the salary will be one of the lowest on Dublin market.
Team leaders are not leaders at all, they have no qualified experience, no language neither communication skills, no empathy and they do not look after the morale of the team at all.

When the company decides to terminate a contract (firing or let it expire) they do not give any notice, they do not schedule 1 to 1 to prepare the employee, they do not provide explanation or feedback. They only ask HR to send the employee a cold e-mail, out of the blue, with zero explanation, confused instructions and a poor excuse.

After that, the employee is practically forced to disappear in silence...
Pros
Buying time for a better role and company
Cons
Worst management ever

Great company with lots of opportunity but the salaries paid are way below other companies doing the same thing. HR is a joke and takes ages to get anything done. Overall a good company but don’t expect to earn a lot.

a lot of time to select employees and get hired : to do your screening, to write to your references... but after all this work before your are hired
they are no longer interested in you at all; despite the huge size of this company and the positions all over the world there is no real opportunity to evolve and move forward.(or much too slowly.. after 10 years maybe :) So huge waste of staff ressources at the end because after one or 2 years you leave...

HR are just bad.
Pros
Depends on the client ..Free lunches, free showers and towels, very nice atmosphere between the employees (Facebook)
Cons
Pay attention on your contract, some people do not have a contract of employment and are paid weekly.
