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

    Pros

    Nice opportunities to advance if you are working on something hot. Good online training on various topics.

    Cons

    Very longs hours if your project was sold undersized and you have to do work of other people as well as your client's people. However this is an occupational hazard for any consulting company. Nonetheless It gets to you once you start feeling lack of sleep.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can we have fewer videos about you in Davos or generally you having a good time? Since it does not reflect reality for most of the people, it just makes me angry (or jealous or both)... :(

    Pros

    Accenture offers a very good environment for work. Good opportunities, good management are some of the highlights of working here.

    Cons

    If your looking for better perks then this may not be the right place. Also with such a huge organization you will always have to keep doing something extraordinary to get noticed which is good in a way. You will have to think about your own career as no one would be there to guide you here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to pay attention to what the resources need. Needs to think better about the personal growth of their employees.
