    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.

    I worked at Accenture full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fast paced environment working with the top tier of clients in the market

    Cons

    The career model is developing but it is still very much an up or out type structure. It can also be difficult to move into work you are potentially more interested in because you're committed to another client.

    Advice to Management

    Less tampering with the organisational structure

    I worked at Accenture full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Health insurance. Very good work environment. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Very low salary. Not very well organized. Unstable Job.

    Advice to Management

    Accenture Ireland needs to be organised, and be better prepared to deal with clients that decide to end projects in an abrupt and sudden way. The company need to be able to accommodate employees in different projects, instead of dismissing valuable assets and open new roles, to different projects that would fit perfectly within the existent workers.

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

    Pros

    You make a ton of friends, they are very open to paying for different training opportunities (as long as it's relevant). Good pay. Great management - very supportive. A lot of interesting projects to work on and even if you hate it you'll probably change projects every 6 months

    Cons

    Sometimes you might have to work on long projects with clients. There's a high turnover so you have to be okay with missing your friends.

    I worked at Accenture full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great starting salary, matching pension contributions, healthcare and a free trip abroad for 2 weeks training which is fun but also quite intense. Some very nice people working here. The experience working here will differ greatly from person to person as it all depends which project you are placed on.

    Cons

    There is a real risk that you don't write any code. You have little or no say as to where you are put and there is the risk of being put on the bench for an indefinite amount of time.

    Advice to Management

    Don't advertise a Software Program that isn't Software Engineering and maybe hire less graduates, more new hires than there are internal roles.
