    I worked at Accenture full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Many opportunities to learn what you want to learn Fantastic people and lots of social gatherings, happy hours, events and trainings Good work-life balance Team feels like family, even closer than family at times Competitive salaries Generous PTO and maternity/paternity leave Ability to adapt to changing times and competition with other companies

    Cons

    I work for the Federal side and the hours are great, but I hear if you work non-Federal, the hours and travel can be draining. Some people love it though, it's just a matter of preference.

    Advice to Management

    Keep treating us the way you do.

    Pros

    work life balance able to work remote, working on awesome projects, people working alongside you are very dedicated and smart.

    Cons

    sometimes dealing with mean difficult clients, work life balance difficult at times to uphold especially if you are on projects with teams in different time zones or offshore, travel can become overwhelming at times. very competitive environment and fast paced so its not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    promote up more minorities and women. It shouldn't be such as boys club.
