I worked at Accenture full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

You will learn more than you can imagine, enjoy great camraderie and diversity of experience. There is no better business school than being dropped into different companies and learning about the operational and organizational problems and being part of the team that resolves them.

Cons

The travel is extensive. I spent 5 years living in a suitcase. It was exciting at first but it begins to take a toll on your personal life. Your career depends on how good a career counselor you have and you will work with some excellent people and some who have no business being in the industry. It's mostly positive. Work/life balance is simply non-existent. The culture is driven by deadlines and you can't move ahead unless you drink the cool aid.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Managing Directors (aka Partners, aka Senior Executives) are not always in tune with the needs of their reports. They are driven by budget and not hesitant to demand huge inconveniences and sacrifices from their direct reports. As a junior person you simply cannot refuse.
