    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people, work hard /play hard mentality, career progression (you are responsible for your own career - you can take it down whatever path you choose). Plenty of opportunities to network, and for the federal practice - not much travel.

    Cons

    There is a decent amount of bureaucracy, working with the government can be akin to pulling teeth, easy to get lost in a large firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase compensation, decrease amount of useless trainings

    Pros

    Benefits
    Vacation days are more than other companies.
    Coworkers are always cooperative and friendly.

    Cons

    Upper Management not always in a mood to listen new ideas, is like trying to teach an old dog new trick

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen, be open and receptive to new/fresh ideas and do not refuse them just because you don't know about such technology or you always did something in the "as usual" way

    Pros

    Great support staff on learning core job functions. Great executire presence in Federal Financial Management projects

    very low pay compared to competitors w/ learning curve trailling off after 3rd year of employment. Each iterative promotion as you performing the same job functions, but with greater numbers and larger reports.
