    I have been working at Accenture

    Pros

    Experience estimating and leading a workstream
    Great experience working directly with clients
    Generous budget for training and conferences
    Five weeks paid vacation
    Rack up frequent flier miles, hotel points and other travel perks
    Well known company looks great on resume
    Work from home on Fridays

    Cons

    Travel gets old, fast
    Can get staffed on a role that has little to do with your interests and specialties
    Often exceeding 50/60 hours a week with no overtime pay
    Lots of politics involved working within Accenture and with large clients
    Not much opportunity for mobile, RIA, social media and other cutting-edge projects
    Low base salaries until you get to upper levels

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A lot of consultants and managers are lost due to low salary. Accenture should buy a visual design agency.

    Pros

    In the consulting industry, Accenture provides excellent opportunities for growth through a strong coaching and mentoring program combined with access to the most innovative and large projects. Team orientation and focus on skill building differentiate Accenture from competitors like Deloitte and IBM.

    Cons

    Cons are primarily cons related to consulting in general: lots of travel means little time at home and less time with family and friends; client demands and the need to constantly build skills mean high stress; the need to both sell new work and deliver for current clients mean weeks are typically 50-70 hours.
