    I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Growing company with decent benefits package and 30 days of paid time off per year after you've worked there for five years (plus holidays!)

    Cons

    In a fast-moving consulting company like Accenture, you often see other, less experienced employees get promoted over you. It's really based on who you know and what project you're assigned to at the time. Many jobs are shifted overseas to keep costs down, which is frustrating.

    Pros

    Working around great people. You're able to take on a lot of responsibility in the first few years working.

    Cons

    Life on the road can be exhausting.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They pay well with good benefits.
    I've worked with some very smart people and you can learn a lot.
    Plenty of room to move up or across the company into new roles.

    Cons

    Long hours (on my projects). Everyone feels comfortable calling you 24/7 if there is something going on. Never feels like you are truly off the clock. With the high turnovers both in the company and on the projects, it can be hectic.

    Advice to Management

    Try to actually improve "work/life balance" instead of just saying it to look like you care. Relationships will keep people, not just more money.

    Continue to evolve, best part of the company was continuous learning was part of the culture

    Pros

    There are so many pros to list for Accenture!!

    - Positive work environment
    - WONDERFUL benefits!
    - Engaged employer!
    - Huge environment with a ton of challenges!
