    I worked at Accenture as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - interns get to travel on projects with their team, just like a full time analyst would
    - great salary and signing bonus for full time
    - they got rid of their former analyst ranking system, to prevent competition. Now analysts are evaluated based on their own performance, and not compared to others
    - people are generally down to earth and easy to talk to, especially if you're new
    - Active development programs for entry level employees and minorities to expose them to higher ups, programs the company offers, etc.
    - Plenty of opportunities to meet MDs in your office

    Cons

    - firm size (the company has 400k practitioners globally, which is a LOT. It's not like you're interacting with that many people on a daily basis, but if you decide to work from the office on Fridays, it will usually be a hodge-podge of random people that you've never met, as people come into the office usually pretty inconsistently, so it'll always be someone new)
    - they just implemented the regional staffing model (you will only be staffed on projects that are in the same geographical region as your home office). Its good for people who are settling down and don't want to travel, but make sure you choose your home office wisely based on your lifestyle preferences and industry interests (ex: if you want to work on financial services projects, you should choose NYC as your home office, compared to San Francisco)
    - staffing model is also pretty random. You get assigned a "career counselor", but its generally expected that you network like crazy to get staffed on projects. And projects can be scarce depending on the time of year and economic cycle, so make sure you know a few people before joining the firm so networking into a project isn't as difficult
    - new analyst training takes place in their outdated conference facility in middle-of-nowhere Illinois for 2 weeks (honestly not that bad, but its no Deloitte University)
    - definite separation of departments. I interned with Strategy, which has a completely different recruiting team, projects, etc. from Consulting, Technology, etc. So when you're networking with people to get on a project, make sure the people you talk to are in your same department, or else they can't help you

    Having Accenture on your resume is a huge plus!!!!!
