    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Expected to take responsibility. Opportunities to work on different challenges within a project.

    Cons

    WORST work life balance. Managers have no respect for personal commitments.
    Solutions work force is under paid for the work and time put in. It is the forgotten child, and one has to climb numerous career levels, where as consulting work force skips career levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up channels to express project grievances. Projects badly planned and handled, need clear direction from management to handle both client and employee expectations.

  3. High pressure, ability to get broad based experience and work with a lot of determined people. Good chance to develop.

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

    Pros

    Leadership opportunities, and chance to get faster promotions (however look at cons). In addition, there is great exposure to multiple clients. Good chance to network with people.

    Cons

    Work life balance is poor. Control over projects that you are assigned to is not great. Sometimes, training might be denied due to 'project budget' constraints. Tendency for the culture to force people to constantly 'stand out' as compared to 'get things done'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider investing in a person from a holistic perspective. Also consider the non-career aspects of a person's work (personal, social/work-life, etc) as employees might have different priorities in life

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees need a clear direction on where the organization is headed. Need managers who embody the core values, especially "respect for an individual"
