Pros

Great people, great work, and training program

Cons

as you move up, people tend to set your career path rather than allow you to grow and pave your own path

Advice to ManagementAdvice

there are great leaders and bad, some tend to be neutral than make the right statements internally or to clients

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

    Pros

    -Good flexible work arrangements
    -Great starting salary and benefits
    -25 days vacation is pretty standard in consulting/services
    -Great people
    -They have a ton of social events going on all the time
    -Training is great

    Cons

    -It can be hard to move up
    -Often times its who you know that lets you move up in the company
    -If going through a tough release or project, can be really long hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Recognize people who work really hard
    -There should be intermediate promotions in consulting so that people at least know they're progressing somewhat.
