    I worked at Accenture

    Pros

    Collegial environment and young talent. A great place to see a lot of industries and launch an entry level career

    Cons

    HR can staff you anywhere and the work hours can be horrendous depending on the project. Stick to good people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You'll drive away all of your bright talent if HR keeps staffing them at projects they hate and they feel like there's no one on their sides.

    I worked at Accenture full-time (more than 8 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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