I have been working at Accenture full-time (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.

    Current Employee - Systems Integration Consultant in San Jose, CA

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

    Pros

    - Travel to new places
    - If on a travel project - per diem, frequent flier miles, hotel points, large network
    - Young "work hard play hard" environment
    - Lots of resources at your disposal

    Cons

    - Can be long hours
    - Some projects are seriously hit or miss. Determining whether or not your project is going to suck depends entirely on asking the right questions to management before getting involved. I've had terrible project experience but I've had really positive ones as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always take the time to mentor and develop more of the junior people. Believe in them and give them a chance to grow before writing them off.
