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

    Pros

    Great name recognition, training available for many different disciplines, opportunities in many industries. Work environments are usually fun and encouraging. Opportunities are many if you're willing to pursue them and can meet the people needed to do so.

    Cons

    Career path can be confusing at times if you're not patient or willing to really grab your career by the horns.

    Travel can be rough on people, but it seems like you can get away without travel if you play your cards right (I haven't traveled at all in my first year of employment).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency about career path during hiring process. It is difficult to define because it's a consulting firm, but it seems that the average hire just gets assigned something according to business need and then it's difficult to break from that unless you already have a skill set.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Everyone works hard and is very smart. This is a company full of Type A personalities and everyone is motivated to get work done.

    Cons

    Some people can be very competitive and there are some difficult people. However, how is that different than what you would have at any large firm?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep providing more career opportunities to junior team members. Offer a longer maternity leave (Accenture offers 2 months paid and only guarantees job for 4 months, whereas competitors offer up to 6 months of paid maternity leave).
