Pros

The biggest plus is that they'll hire you out of college and they don't seem to care what your major is or how well you did in school. There are tons of positions so you can learn quite a lot in a short amount of time. They also provide a fairly good training budget so you can get at least one industry training class per year if you work the system properly.

Cons

They will absolutely kill you. There are two types of employees at Accenture - the worthless filler people and the small number that do all of the work. If you show any aptitude you will be abused. This is not necessarily all bad - you will learn a ton while you're getting killed but at some point you will burn out and need to move on. Make sure you are always looking for a new job after you get around 2 years of experience and don't worry about leaving anyone behind.

Advice to Management

Treat your people as better than just numbers and you'll have better retention.

    Pros

    Ability to continuously learn on projects in fast paced environments
    Great opportunity to receive feedback under the correct manager

    Cons

    very poor work life balance
    Most companies atleast pay lip service to work-life balance, but this does not even do that
    High sales pressure at certain levels that leads sr. level staff to not focus on client concerns but be more worried about driving incremental sales
