    Pros

    Amazing training, Opportunity to do real strategy work. The IT Strategy practice feels and acts like an elite group within Accenture.

    Cons

    Very opaque promotion process. Interactions with the Systems Integration practice can be surprising at first. Difficult to figure out how to balance the interest of staying staffed and chargeable and being available for Managing Directors and Senior Managers who have direct influence over your career.

    Pros

    Good flexibility in terms of work hours

    Cons

    Hierarchical nature in India. Lateral movement almost impossible. Hard to network and get into other projects unless your management absolutely doesn't want you in the current one. Less importance given to personal goals.
