    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    A good company to work for. Some good perks such as vacation time, benefits.

    Cons

    Pay is quite lower then other firms. You tend to have to leave in order to stay consistant with the market place. Work life balance is not a focus. They tend to talk more then really act. As long as their intentions are good what actions happen are not considered by management.

    Pros

    Great place to start your career and learn how to operate in a business environment. Great skills business operator skills to take with you for the rest of your career. Good breadth opportunities in small project teams to large scale multiple year engagments.

    Cons

    Long hours, not always recognized for the effort that you contribute in year end performance. It sometimes feels like the loudest person in the room is favored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job at equipping the junior teams with the skills they need to be experts.

    Pros

    Work-Life Balance is great
    Onsite Opportunity
    Company Values are also great
    Work Culture is amazing

    Cons

    The only and biggest disadvantage is when you get a support project and your personal growth in technical knowledge gets a pause.

    Pros

    Nice pay master, believe in its core values. Always give opportunities to travel. Project relocation part of Accenture business. Perks are good. work-life balance is not so cool.

    Cons

    Company put pressure for travel, no work-life balance since high performance is enemy of personal life.
    Company always sustains on its value, ethics but high politics when comes to ratings, its Manager's choice and partiality runs business in whole. Accenture is tough world for super techies, lots of manager don't understand technical language. You might be reporting to more then two manager in one project. Managers lives in egoistic world, hardly care about resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train Managers to understand technical terms

    Pros

    There is some flexibility in choosing assignments, If you're lucky and get a good CC that might go a long way in career development. Networking helps.
    PTO flexibility

    Cons

    Salary is ok, Bonuses are dependant on which client you worked for which depends on who you knew on the first place. Work life balance is bad. Its the nature of consulting i guess . Promotions are very hard to come by given the numbers. Pay hikes are pretty measly. If yo did not start with a good enough base its going to be hard to expect much else by way of descretionary bonus. Many projects I have put in 80 - 90 hour work weeks with great client feedback but my bonus was peanuts for that year.

    Pros

    Lots of growth opportunity for someone who is 5-6 years into their career. Excellent support network to navigate through your career. Significant emphasis on corporate citizenship and giving back to the community.

    Cons

    Performance measurement is too subjective and doesn't have a universal standard to account for contributions across services lines. Also moving more towards a staff aug model versus strategic efforts.
