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

Pros

You learn a lot of soft and hard skills, you meet and work with generally good people, compensation is good, although not necessarily by judging within the IT industry alone

Cons

Corporate culture is very strong and you are expected to conform, you are only as good as your current project/client boss/accenture boss judges, can be long hours and interfere with work life balance, and maybe most of all, the "meritocracy" promotion system is flawed because most people are high performers and the company is not growing fast enough to accommodate all the promotions that are deserved. Also, it can be hard to branch out from Accenture to other jobs.

Advice to Management

Revise the meritocracy system to allow more promotion spots, if this isn't possible, then create and socialize a consulting career path that involves staying at-level with greater compensation.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Accenture is on the cutting edge of harnessing the latest in technology and business innovation and bringing that knowledge directly to their clients. It's exciting to be part of an organization that is so focused on innovation.

    Cons

    Unless you work in a client-facing role, your opportunities for advancement are limited. If you are in Finance, Marketing or any other internal support unit, you have little opportunity to partake in the best spoils of the company's success, even if you are a top performer.

    Advice to Management

    None.
