    Pros

    Tremendous opportunity for growth and defining your career path for motivated professionals

    Cons

    If you are not comfortable putting your foot down it is very easy to get over worked or stuck on a project you do not like

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone is "type A". I think this pushes out work but dampens the creativity of other employees. In the Federal practice people get developed an promoted in vacuums and the current laddering process favors those employees. It creates leadership that is not well developed to the Accenture brand and hampers development of analysts.

    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.
