    Pros

    Great to work among intelligent people. The consulting environment is varied and somewhat stimulating. Clients will look at you as if you have all the answers, so you have the ability to take on responsiblity and also act like you know what youre doing.

    Cons

    Accenture is a masterful extension of big government and Fortune 100 companies. The client's executive management pushes off difficult decisions consulting projects. As a result, BIG money is being spent on these projects resulting in a waste of stockholder and taxpayer dollars. It's a bit of a scam really.

    Additonally, the travel gets old after about 6 months. Forget about having a sense of community in the city where you live. It goes without saying that most normal people won't be able to have meaningful relationships with family and friends.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
