Great career growth, but comes at a cost.

Pros

Aggressive career growth for top performers. People work hard, and are rewarded by promotions. These can come quickly, but the pace for most is slowing down. Changes in scenery as you move to different clients, constant challenges and opportunities.

Cons

Travel can be a drag, pay is typically less than you'd make elsewhere. Plenty of long hours during "crunch time", but most projects are in a constant state of "crunch".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There's just no reason to underpay, and fixing work-life balance should be more than lip-service.

    I worked at Accenture full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Best team I have ever worked with in 20+ years. Can-do attitude and exciting technology make for a great work experience. Supportive management, challenging environment. Great training when required. People do what they say they will and aren't afraid to ask questions. Making mistakes is acceptable provided you are up front & timely with updates. Chance to work on anything they throw at you and learn new technology in-depth. Very little politics.

    Cons

    Long hours. Really long. Money could be better but it is within industry standards. Advancement very slow and even then only with superior performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A few more bodies on projects and less weekend work.
