    Pros

    Accenture is a great company for someone fresh out of school. There are plenty of projects and Accenture has so many divisions that you can network your way to do what you want to do. Furthermore, the compensation is very generous and Accenture generally cares about employees.

    Cons

    The review process can be very unnerving especially when you have to be compared against your colleagues. Even if you are doing what you're supposed to, you might get a below expectation rating.

    The work itself sometimes require you to give up social life.
