Pros

Competitive entry level salary. Good atmosphere and camaraderie. Possible to be in a range of roles and industries. The company is fairly supportive of its employees when it comes to career goals and other big picture things (time off, family etc.).

Cons

Pay increases and bonuses are not great. Hours can be a bit long. There is no true management consulting arm. It's merely a front for the IT consulting (Accenture's core competency).

Advice to Management

In general management is running the company well. The review process is a bit shaky since you depend heavily on a bunch of senior management that may not know you at all.

    Pros

    Exposure to wide array of software and technologies only if you get into a right group.
    Fast paste environment.
    A lot of young fellows coworkers

    Cons

    Very low salary - I was making 25,000 first year, 32,000 - second year
    There is no life/ work balance if you want to advance your career.
    You are on your own to gain experience.
    There is a great chance to work on a project supporting outdated technology.

    If you pay peanuts, you will get monkeys to work for you....
