    Pros

    Great work environment! The benefits are excellent. Being able to work remotely supporting a well balanced lifestyle is a dream come true.

    Cons

    The pay is poor for someone who has a degree and over 10 years experience. It seems that in order to work in a place that supports training in a new field and does support remote work, this is to be expected. Will need to update this as time goes by as I have only been there under a year.

    I have been working at Accenture

    Pros

    Laid back, collegial environment where everyone is supportive of one another. Could not have asked for a better place to start after graduation.

    Cons

    Long work hours. While we are told we should take advantage of vacation days, in reality, it can be detrimental to career advancement to do so, at least in the first year or two.

    Accenture was a great company for me as a recent college graduate. I was not happy with the project I was in, due to the costumer, but my team was great. I would go back on a different project.

    Pros

    Great for working mothers
    If in consulting you have the opportunity to be on different projects with new customers and new learning experiences.
    Good salary and raises

    Cons

    Being in services, I felt stuck in a 3-5 year position when I wanted the opportunity to move around in consulting.
    Promotions were held up by management with little to no explanation.
    I did not feel supported when I wanted to stay with Accenture but move to a different project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your hard workers who want the change to try something new, better to have them within the company then gone all together.
