    Pros

    Its work ethics and policies

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

    Pros

    The company is huge, which allows you room for growth in many areas. With that said, you also need to be extremely proactive in knowing what you want and in pursuing it. The company does provide many resources and has a great knowledge exchange. Good place to start your career.

    Cons

    Like many consulting firms, it's more about the politics than your work effort/results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the actual value-add in employees rather than following political pressure.

    Current Employee - Business Analyst in Los Angeles, CA

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great PTO, Great opportunities across the world, flexible hours

    Cons

    Made an office transfer from KC to LA because a project had wanted me to join one of there teams. My salary was only bumped by $2,000. Barely livable coming from KC (which is very cheap) and going to LA (where the COLA and tax and rent are a drastic change)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Salaries need to be reconsidered, I am technically making less than what I was in Kansas City in LA. I have no money to save and am living paycheck to paycheck at 25.
