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

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.
