    Great place to earn your professional stripes.

    Manager (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsStandard mega consulting and outsourcing pros:
    - exposure to many environments, challenges and the global work place
    - accelerated learning and progression (for high performers)
    - travel which is fun when you're young
    - stability because these companies are so highly diversified

    ConsStandard mega consulting and outsourcing cons:
    - travel gets old as other priorities become important in your life
    - culture is not quite as fun as it used to be
    - quality of counterparts has been impacted due to diversification of workforce (namely outsourcing and experienced hires that don't fit in)
    - you don't "live with the decisions you make" and the changes you implement

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone. Keep up the amazing work!

    Accenture is a good place for self starters to work

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsAccenture is a dynamic, open place to gain experience and challenge yourself. I was hired and promoted several times in a short time frame. The work is challenging and schedules are flexible. I have worked at a combination of client sites, Accenture offices and home. Our project keeps people engaged and informed.

    ConsYour career is in your hands more than most other places, which is good, but for those not used to such a system, there is a learning curve which can be detrimental. There are systems in place to assist you with your career track but the overall approach can be a challenge.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA little more open communication to those you are seeking to bring on to a role and those who are working on your teams would go a long way.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    More than just Consulting roles

    Global Human Resources Programs & Operations (Current Employee) Anaheim, CA

    ProsYou hear a lot about the burn out that occurs for people in consulting roles, but there are also many other opportunities, especially in the Corporate Functions space. Work from home and set own hours.

    ConsWhile the flexibility is nice, tend to work around the clock supporting all parts of the world. People in the corporate functions space are work-aholics.

    Good Starter company to learn consulting world

    Business Senior Analyst (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsIf you want to learn the politics of consulting with a great company, Accenture is a great place to come. Access to Senior Management is easy and great advice is always given.

    ConsTravel can become hectic so you can really lose a work-life balance. There are times I would not be home for weeks. But i was able to do it because I was single and didn't have children.
