    Pros

    1. Resume boosting brand recognition... "great place to start you career" according to some magazines
    2. Lots of online training available - you get to choose which courses and classes you want to take
    3. Core Analyst School is fun. You meet other Accenture employees from around the world in for a 2 week party-fest (or at least that's the way it was back in 2007).

    Cons

    1. Many unhappy workers - for some reason, lots of Accenture employees are unhappy. Maybe it is a mis-fit with the consulting lifestyle or maybe it is the sacrifices that they request of you or even the way they use competitiveness and performance ratings to get more work out of you.
    2. Poor compensation. As with most places, people generally are not thrilled with their pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More concern with employees happiness.
