    I have been working at Accenture full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I like this company because it inspires me to give my best. They hire intelligent people of integrity and it shows. It's such a large company, but they try very hard to keep everyone connected. Because of the size there is also a ton of room to grow if you are willing to work hard.

    They don't nickel and dime every minute worked and it's really a breath of fresh air especially having come from companies where micro management was rampant. You work till your job is done and sometimes that means late nights, but it also means if you need to leave early one day it's not a big deal.

    Lots of e-learnings available to those who want / need it.

    Cons

    My biggest challenge thus far has been lack of hands on training. There are tons of virtual learning classes and PowerPoint decks, but once you've done your required trainings you get your projects and have to figure out how to get it done. No one really holds your hand to show you the first time. You have to ask questions and look at past projects and find your way. You really have to be self motivated to do well.

    Update your Scifs with windows, and light so people don't feel like they're in a cage. In addition if it's possible to have an onsight kitchen that would be helpful.
