    Pros

    The best on-boarding and personnel development and elearning solutions available. Constant quality affirmation and sense of trust in your business unit.

    Cons

    Draconian culture. Rating system on a project very unevenly administered. Annual review is dark, unpleasant process that encourages a cut-throat behavior.

    Advice to Management

    Either change the cut-throat nature of the annual review, or apply the process to ALL career levels. Human resources personnel do not have same fear of annual forced ratings.

    All the education and experience of business school, except paid and given tons of opportunity

    Pros

    Accenture has a presence in most industries, and with most Fortune 500 companies, and top public organizations around the world. It is a great choice if you are unsure about what you want to do in business. You have the opportunity to pursue any career path you'd like, and they treat you like a fully experienced employee at entry-level and are willing to put you into any situation you believe you can handle. I had the opportunity to work for 8+ different companies, and travel to 3 different countries in my relatively short time with Accenture. I highly recommend a career in Accenture's Management Consulting

    Cons

    The review/rating/promotion process is completely screwed up and is almost completely irrespective of your actual contributions or work with your clients.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your promotion process so you can keep your best people. There's a big reason why you're having such difficulty with employee retention.
