Pros

Interesting and challenging work
Met a lot of interesting and motivated people
The career model forces you to grow fast
Compensation is decent and increases quite quickly with promotions
Great Human Resources and support staff
Great atmosphere when you start at the company, fun training sessions in St Charles, Illinois

Cons

Since I started at the company back in 2002 the business model is changing due to increased competition from Asian-based consulting companies such as Infosys. Prices are being driven down which impacts the career model and expectations of long term success at the company
Politics! Quite natural for such a large company I guess, but the more you climb up the ranks the more you realize how much 'visibility' (read: coziness) with senior management is crucial to advancing your career
High turnover rate, although this is intrisically part of the model - people who fail to be promoted often leave. Often young employees use Accenture as a stepping stone to the rest of their career

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Accenture is good at changing its operating model and structure to face the changing demands of the market. That makes me optimistic about its future, even though the competitive landscape is not going to improve in the coming decade. So far Accenture has resisted a pivot towards a blend of consulting and software licensing and support, and in my opinion it is time to change that. There is a lot of technical talent at Accenture which, harnessed appropriately, could give it a huge opportunity to develop software for its clients, thereby creating a safer revenue stream compared to the constant stress of selling mandays of work.
