    Pros

    Despite the long hours, tight deadlines, constant client demands, airport delays, etc., etc...the PEOPLE are what make this place great. Time and time again I'm amazed at the culture that we offer at Accenture. It's what defines us. It's not for for everyone, but for those that "fit the mold", it's a gem. Give your best to Accenture and you will be rewarded.

    Cons

    Consulting in general comes with it's share of negatives. Accenture is not unique - we have a high turnover rate for a reason, and I feel it's more of the lifestyle and competing firms than anything that we're not doing right. Many find out that this type of work is not for them, and that's ok. When you join, it will feel at first like you're a tiny fish in a huge ocean (because you are). But quickly you will find your niche and make it all your own.
