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

    Pros

    Accenture's very fast-paced environment provides ample opportunities to push yourself beyond what you previously thought you were capable of, which definitely inspires confidence and increases performance dramatically over time.

    Cons

    The fast-paced environment is a double edged sword though, with a strong mentality of "up or out" within the consulting practice, it does cause a higher level of stress.
