I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than a year

Pros

At Accenture you can get client exposure early on in your career. You will have visibility to a lot of different types of industries, clients, client culture. You may get to climb the corporate ladder quickly.

If you like a project/ role, best to try to stay with the same management/ type of work. If you don't like a project, you can request to switch. Do this early if something is not a right fit.

Cons

There is sometimes a sense that you are just another employee and that your individual needs are not important. If you are in a situation where you face a long commute or long hours, you may feel like you can not request a change from your manager because of a sense that someone else in your peer group will without complaint. You determine what you are willing to deal with. Set your expectations with your manager early on and touch base frequently.

The main promotion cycle is yearly, depending on what time you come in, you could be on the fast track or you could have to wait another year. Promotions are based on your work but are also strongly based on who you know in the organization. Build a strong relationship with your direct manager and career counselor.

    I worked at Accenture full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This is a great place to start your career, and grow. You will learn a lot, and get opportunities to work in several different industries and functional areas. The benefits are great. For examble, 5 weeks vacation to start is actually pretty great. Additionally, everyone I worked with was extremely intelligent, which creates a great learning environment

    Cons

    The travel is initially great, but can sometimes began to wear you out at times, but Accenture is pretty good about allowing employees to find in town projects.

    I worked at Accenture full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If traveling 4 days a week is not an issue with your life situation, Accenture is a great place to work - good exposure, training, skills building, salary and perks

    Cons

    Traveling must unless you get lucked out with a near-location project, but you are expected to travel

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build project search and allocation capabilities based on proximity of consultant to client location - this will build the value proposition for the client by reducing the overall cost , and add improves the work life balance for the consultant.
