    I have been working at Accenture full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits. The account I work on is very stable and it is hard to see us losing it anytime soon or ever. Great learning experience, good office culture, great paid time off, and flexible schedules

    Cons

    If you are fresh out of school you will probably get placed where you are needed and not necessarily where your skill set is. If you end up on this account you may not even end up in the position you were hired for. Ask, about pay scales for other areas of the account the ensure you don't get jerked around. As far as I know they are not shady like that. But, it doesn't hurt to ask.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The people, and the interesting work. Six weeks of PTO a year, work life balance, people care about each other. I do work in the outsourcing part of Accenture. Competitive salaries.

    Cons

    Training is hard to come by. The project you work on is largely related to your happiness at the time -- the consulting part of the organization can be cutthroat.

    I worked at Accenture full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    -Good Salary.
    -Good HR policy.
    -Great Onshore opportunity.
    -Lots of possibility to learn and progress.

    Cons

    -Mostly TL and AM(Who are there for a long time) doesn't know stuff that the are working on, All the want is to allocate work, check status, do excel work.
    -Resources who are there in Accenture right from the beginning of there career, are not technically sound.
    -Since many TL and AM are not technically good, it decrease the possibility for you to learn, since your lead doesn't know much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Change the promotion policy, make it more merit oriented, and transparent.
    -Age old managers, TL and AMs should change themselves, and become more technical.
