Pros

provides additonal training and development. IT can be a great place if and only if you get the right set of people in the practice.

Cons

You can get stuck working with highly unprofessional people and have no ability to manage out of the project. The mgt. in the Hyperion consulting practice stand clear of them.. Extremely abrasive & unprofessional..

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try leading more often.

    Pros

    Decent pay and the company does care about it's employees. Wants what is best for 1) the contract 2) the management Team and 3) the employee - as long as you figure this out you'll do good and they management team will support you.

    Cons

    Accenture is in the outsourcing business so if you do not keep yourself relevant all the time, you could easily work your way out of your current job as it is sent overseas to be done by someone with a waged less than 10% of yours. You need to constantly find ways to be useful to the company in order to continue being part of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick your great workers and develope them, train them, and have a succession plan in place for each when it comes time to realocate the work force to a nation that is much more cost efficient.
