It's a lot of work, and becomes a lifestyle, and is a decent job for someone right out of college

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 ManagementAdvice

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 a year)

    Pros

    Smart co-workers, interesting clients, high-profile work. Constant challenges and room to grow/learn. Flexible work schedule. Competitive pay. Great brand awareness - the job seems to look great on a resume.

    Cons

    Travel. Demanding hours. Weekend work. Smartest people means it can be hard to rise to the top of your peer group. Working on client sites can be demanding - have to constantly be prepared and professional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve rating process.
