I have been working at Accenture full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Very progressive company, new and different ideas, out of the box thinking

Cons

At the time I worked in the VA Office - it was difficult for those who only work from office to continually have to make reservations for your desk/cubicle and have to clear off everything from your desk everyday in case someone else has to work there the next day.

    Pros

    Accenture has clients everywhere and the opportunity is there to get involved in really interesting work BUT it doesn't come easy, you have to network your way to everything.

    Cons

    Really low pay for the time commitment expectations in the MC practice. Also, hard to keep up with all the administrative tasks that are required of you to be rated highly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We understand that margins are important but don't do "whatever it takes" to maintain high margins at the expense of promotion opportunities for your deserving people.
