    Pros

    Diverse culture, varied work environment where you can get involved in any number of projects. Fast moving

    Cons

    Work at lower analyst level often times consists of mundane tasks (grunt work) such as reports gathering, etc. Work quality can be hit or miss depending on initial few assignments that will largely influence the trajectory of your career there.

    Pros

    Culture at Accenture is great. Great mentoring scheme, many helpful, smart people work here from array of different backgrounds.

    Cons

    Promotion process can be very subjective. Long, tedious review process at the end of the year due to nature of how large the company is.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more opportunities for new analysts cross-industry.

    Pros

    They give a lot of responsibility and expect a lot out of you in return. Knowledge base is high and there is always someone to reach out to if information is needed.

    Cons

    orientation is short and not much information is given, interviewing and applying again for projects is a pain. It is like looking for a new job all over again, consulting life...

    Advice to Management

    1 interview with resource manager per year, then roles are just assigned to you. sink or swim. quicker roll ons and less back and forth.

    -Lots of challenging work -Peers and colleagues were great and encouraging -Pay and benefits good

    Cons

    - Inconsistency between "team" message and command and control approach. - Focus on short term revenue and outsourcing wins rather than customer needs
