    Pros

    Accenture offers a very good environment for work. Good opportunities, good management are some of the highlights of working here.

    Cons

    If your looking for better perks then this may not be the right place. Also with such a huge organization you will always have to keep doing something extraordinary to get noticed which is good in a way. You will have to think about your own career as no one would be there to guide you here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to pay attention to what the resources need. Needs to think better about the personal growth of their employees.

    Bad hours and range in type of work / quality of projects. Focusing your projects in an industry / function helps with promotion but may not meet your own development goals.
