Pros

Accenture, like other consulting firms, allows you to learn about senior corporate culture very early on in your career. Accenture itself is embedded in so many different companies in the US and around the world that it is fairly easy to move into an industry or position that you want, albeit with some leveraging and by making your desires known. On the IT side, there's no one better and your ability to manage projects and deal with issues will increase rapidly. Overall, Accenture is great at IT Consulting, but lacks a bit on the Management Consulting side.

Cons

If you want to be a Management Consultant, Accenture isn't a bad place to be, but it's certainly not the best. Accenture does underpay a bit, but they can afford to do so as the market is a bit weak now and management knows this. Like other firms, the corporate climb is just as tough and ruthless at Accenture, so be prepared for that. My advice, find a mentor that will fight for you and is also in a position to effectively do so.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to figure out a better way to incorporate upwards feedback in the annual review process.

    Pros

    The people you work with are great. Everyone is in it together and has a very collaborative attitude regardless of level. If you work hard, perform well, build your network, and continue to extend yourself, there is a lot of opportunity for advancement and quickly.

    Cons

    There are times when you are expected to work long hours, especially if you are extending yourself to take on more to show well. The work is rewarding and the people you work with are in it with you which makes it not bad, but 10-12 hour days regularly are the norm.
