    I worked at Accenture

    Pros

    Flexability to work from home, variety of different types of projects and clients, very smart / fun / interesting peers to work with

    Cons

    Upper management is sometimes not as smart or as high quality as the analysts and consultants which creates a strange dynamic, long hours, unpredictability of your schedule, a promotion schedule/timeframe that is forced on your,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the idea that not everybody is motivated by making more money. Instead of "climbing the corporate ladder" some people might prefer (instead of continually offering more money) the company to offer better hours or more autonomy on your work location or schedule as you "rise" in the company, instead of just more money.
