    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

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

    Pros

    The people I had the opportunity to work with are by far the most positive part of the company. Interesting industry, good benefits, and solid growing company. Global footprint with opportunities worldwide and the ability to work with team members around the globe.

    Cons

    Absolutely no room for growth, weak mid-level management and leadership. Good place to start, hard place to grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more opportunities for ownership and reward in addition to the responsibilities and initiatives.

    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

    I worked at Accenture

    Pros

    Very good work environment. Have lots of onshore opportunities if you are a top performer. If you are into IT then this place is the best place to kick start your career.

    Cons

    Pay here is a litle less. But hardly matters once you start growing in the company. So growth is a very important factor like anywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
