    Pros

    Working at Accenture was a very good experience. I worked there for 7 years when I was starting my career. Started as an Analyst in Finance and worked up to Manager. They do reward people who do good work.

    Cons

    Downside is that I never saw them fire anyone who was not pulling their weight.

    Pros

    Plenty of internal opportunity if you go after it. Decent pay and benefits. Good name on your resume! Good training programs and tons (almost too much) of internal communication.

    Cons

    Very burocratic. Career path is on your own hands. So big that areas don't often know what other areas are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Do more for employee retention. Good people here but somewhat frustrating. Too much focus on moving things ogg-shore

    Pros

    Really friendly environment. Many resources at your disposal. More laid back in general than many other firms.

    Cons

    Very much what you make out of it. Responsible for finding your own way even when brought on. Daunting promotion opportunities.
