Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Business Analyst

I have been working at IBM full-time for more than a year

Pros

Wonderful people, tons of learning resources, emphasis on personal and professional development.

Cons

Similar to working in any large organization, sometimes there are a few extra layers of red tape before things can get rolling.

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great people, fantastic social opportunities, decent career progression. Accenture is a great company to start in and you will learn so much but it's not a company to spend longer than 5 years... working for.

Cons

The company is constantly restructuring career paths and changing the rules. The career progress criteria isn't enforced fairly across the board. The higher up you go the more time you're expecting... to do Accenture internal work on top of client work. There should be and usually is internal teams who should be doing this but senior management always rely on a few key people who "get things done". Can be very frustrating.
