    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

    This is THE single place to learn life long skills. Cross Industry.. All Verticals... you will be put into high intensity situations, and you will sink or swim. And if you swim, you will blossom, despite no Biz School experience.

    Cons

    Life work balance can be at risk. But this is something that is up and down.

    Advice to Management

    Laddering is sometimes too dependent on the right situation (Right bsos, right project, right time)
