    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

    Best and brightest people I've ever worked with. The company provides many opportunities for personal and professional growth along with going out of their way to ensure everyone has a solid work/life balance. Everyone is assigned a Career Councilor to assist with all things ACN.

    Cons

    Over 300k employees means that you feel like just a number at times. Also, due to the type of work you have no consistent supervisor (project dependent) so getting consistent feedback can be challenging at times.
