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

    Pros

    Able to work remotely depending on your project and project manager;
    Able to travel for work and trainings;
    Extra benefits to claim every year and can be used for vacation expenses;
    Support LGBT and various causes

    Cons

    Stuck in one client for a very long time;
    If unchargeable for too long, might get thrown in any random projects not suited to your profile;
    Performance review approach is scary - you get ranked and have to have managers fight for your position in the ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve performance review ways
    Improve HR and care more about employees not just a number
