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

    Pros

    Defined career path (Analyst > Consultant > Manager > Sr. Manager > Managing Director) with known advancement criteria

    Opportunity to network with both Fortune-100 leadership and top-notch consultants within the firm

    A willingness to teach - you need not be a practiced consultant to do well at this firm

    Great people

    Interesting and challenging work

    Cons

    Salary banding - the band you are hired into is where you will remain throughout your career irrespective of contributions and/or self-development accomplishments (e.g. certifications, MBA, etc.) -- Make sure you negotiate well when joining or be prepared to leave in pursuit of aggressive salary growth

    Lack of work/life balance - depending on where you live, be prepared to travel up to 44 weeks out of the year as client work is most centered in major cities. Living in a major city does not guarantee you will get staffed on an engagement there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place an equal or greater emphasis on employee retention as is currently placed on hiring top talent. It is hard to maintain a great firm in the face of excessive attrition. Otherwise keep up the great work!

    Former Employee - Systems Integration Analyst & Services (D) in Denver, CO

    I worked at Accenture full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Surrounded by hardworking, dedicated, intelligent employees
    - Gain significant work experience and perspective quickly
    - A great place to gain exposure to industry leading companies quickly
    - Great career support structure including performance review process and mentoring
    - Great benefits and employee acknowledgement

    Cons

    - As a new hire, I found it challenging to find a consulting project in the industry I wanted to work in because it wasn't a big industry in my local community.
    - Working remote and/or working with remote teams, although great, also comes with a separate set of challenges
    - No assigned office space in your local office as a consultant that travels / works remote

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Once employees have dedicated a few years to gaining success in their role, it is important to offer flexibility as they start to narrow down what their interests are - in industry, in specialty, in role. Ensure that HR and career counselors can support the conversation needed to learn about both moving up in their role and transitioning internally at Accenture. Help employees to not feel pigeon holed into the area of work that they started in as a new hire. I didn't struggle with this too much in my experience, but I know a lot of new hires felt they were stuck in the industry or specialty that they started in.

    Continue the mentoring setup, I haven't experienced anything like it elsewhere. Annual review process is also extremely thorough and helpful.

    I worked at Accenture full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The PEOPLE, culture, core values, competitive salaries and bonuses, benefits, 27 days PTO, great varying role opportunities, corporate citizenship... oh and did I say the amazing PEOPLE you'll learn from every day?!

    Cons

    80% travel in the Consulting workforce (which you know going into the job, but after a couple years this can get old). Also, depending on the project, you may be working 40 hr weeks or 80 hr weeks.... Cross your fingers the 80 hr weeks don't last 6+ months. Having said that, Leadership has implemented many flexible work schedule and strategic location initiatives to TRY to give people a better work-life balance.

    I worked at Accenture full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Training, career support through mentor-ships, Travel if you are in the consulting track, benefits, work-life balance. Excellent leadership with a clearly defined vision and strategy.

    Cons

    I worked within a small business unit that was acquired. Much of that leadership team was not aligned with the overall corporate culture and business approach. My advice would be to spend more effort on integration of soft skills and technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is only positive. Keep doing exactly what you are doing best. Delivering excellence in service to a global customer base with deep talent pools to achieve that mission. It was a pleasure to be a part of such a great corporate environment.

    Great potential for growth and movement. Recognition and responsibility are given and at an even at intern level I feel l have been able to make a measurable impact on product offerings. Direct
