    I worked at Accenture full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Accenture is very good at what it does which is primarily systems integration and BPO/Outsourcing work. Under management consulting (newly formed Accenture Strategy), the supply chain and operations group is really good. Compensation is competitive at the right after b school level but from what I've heard, it starts falling behind peers (who are pure partnerships) at the more senior level. There are some excellent people at Accenture - always willing to help and great colleagues period.

    Cons

    The management consulting practice leaves a lot to be desired. Majority of the projects are either supply chain projects or are a portion of a large systems integration gig. While it's true that figuring out how to slice and dice finance data for SAP reporting is a type of strategy project, it's not exactly the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word strategy. Perhaps the entire consulting industry is moving away from premium strategy advice type of projects but it's clear that Accenture sees it's future at the intersection of technology and strategy. This is not a bad thing, in fact probably the right thing for the firm to do, but it means more and more management consulting projects will have a strong IT flavor to them and it may not be what someone coming from business school or a pure strategy shop may be looking for.

    Compensation is pretty decent although many other consulting firms are known to pay more especially at the senior level.
