    Pros

    Interesting projects, many challenges, good training and access to a large amount of material and people to help you do your project. Travel - I've been to India twice and was in Canada for seven months on a project.

    Cons

    Typically full-time travel, if you have a family they will need to plan on you being away Monday-Thursday every week and occasionally away on week-ends OR work from home on week-ends during go-lives/project requirements

    Advice to Management

    Additional training to manage client and Accenture management expectations for on-site work. I believe that Accenture would have the following benefits if it started on a 50% (or less in some cases) travel routine.
    Benefits:
    1. More employee satisfaction, less turn-over
    2. Less cost / carbon footprint
    3. Could provide greater productivity - currently I'm on two projects and have a 10-11 hour travel time on Mondays - this is not conducive to getting 8 hours of work in along with all that travel.
    Barriers:
    1. Accenture management still prefers to manage people in person - additional training on how to manage off-site employees could resolve some of that concern.
    2. Additional training for people who are working off-site to 'manage' both their Accenture management as well as their client could provide 'as-good-as' or better results,
    3. Efforts to sell the benefits of off-site work to the client could be increased.
