    I worked at Accenture full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - You shape your own experience if you're a good performer and know how to network
    - Very large company: no time to monitor all employees
    - A network of people in all areas / countries
    - Trainings in Chicago
    - People
    - Accenture Development Partnerships, the not for profit branch

    Cons

    - IT system reputation, if you are looking for a strategy consulting firm
    - Sometimes poor managers
    - Salary less competititive than top tier consulting firm
    - No dedicated resources for market research

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in databases and access to market research intelligence
    Do not promote to managers those who only do sales but are poor people developer
