Hard-driving competitive culture, little work/life balance, but the experience is tremendous

Pros

At Accenture, you sink or swim, make your own career, have the freedom to win big or fail, and while given some support you need, the business is built on networking with folks who work and play hard, all incredibly bright with tremendous experience. It's a great place to work to enhance your skills, learn life-long applications to other business functions, and create friendships and mentorships that will enhance your personal and professional lives immeasurably.

Cons

Highly competitive cultures are a double-edged sword. The culture is very hard-driving and if anyone tells you that there's a good work-life balance (or you have to manage it yourself), then they're understating it. While it's true that you must manage yourself and your life, there are definitely long hours and work-life balance is pretty terrible. Lots of complaints here, but the high pay and great experience may make up for it.

    Pros

    Great training, great people, ability to work across broad range of projects if you are proactive and network internally, interesting clients and opportunity to work on high impact initiatives

    Cons

    Long hours and face time on projects that are not well managed (although not true of all projects), semi-lock step promotion schedule instead of completely merit based, low bonuses
