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

    Pros

    Company is on the leading edge and offers opportunity for continued learning.

    Cons

    Compensation is inadequate for experienced hires. Promises made during the interview process are not kept. Experienced hires are not part of the good ole boy network, which typically includes individuals recruited through the Analyst Program with little or no experience.

    Advice to Management

    There is a high rate of turnover for experience hires. Revamp the HR strategy to update compensation model along with recruiting and retention practices for experienced hires.
