    I worked at Accenture full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Great people, and the aggressive up or out model ensures only top performers stick around (can also be a con) - Breadth of opportunity: Programs in international non-profit work through ADP, client work across industries and functions. It's not easy or straightforward but you can transfer groups if you find the right sponsors and impress them. I worked in Management & Technology consulting, worked in Supply Chain & Finance, and transferred offices globally. - Client access: You get to work directly with senior leaders at client companies with a level of access that would otherwise take years to earn. - Training: Internal training is valued and each person gets annual budget to keep skills up to snuff.

    Cons

    - Work/life balance: The system definitely rewards those who work longer hours, are more productive, and invest all they have into the company. Fun for awhile but causes burn-out. - Hiring & on-boarding: Some less than stellar people get through hiring and the on-boarding for experienced hires is not great. Fortunately the up or out process means no one flies under the radar for long. - Stagnant: It's still a huge company working for other big companies. Implementing "best practices" can sometimes hinder true innovation
