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

Pros

Strong reputation, good pay for young professionals, broad scope of opportunities, access to knowledge capital, many extracurricular activities (can be a pro or con depending on how much of a personal life you want to maintain)

Cons

No training budget, hard to say no when your plate is full, easy to get stuck in projects that aren't a good fit (all about billable hours)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They already know what people like and don't like.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good company for college hires. Good place to start your career and get the name on resume. Good benefits and perks. Good culture on paper.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Top performers are worked into the ground. You do have an opportunity to move up but will have to slog very hard. If you have social life outside of work it will suffer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management need to look out for their people. Tend to agree to take on work and deliver on time regardless of how long people have to work.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO
