    I worked at Accenture full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Potential to be on great projects to boost your resume/career. Work with smart people. Pay is good

    Cons

    Like any company you might get stuck with some bad apples, challenging personalities. The biggest con was the back stabbing and posturing probably due to the ranking system, where you get ranked 1-60~ on your project.

    Advice to Management

    switch to 360 degree review system, it will improve the atmosphere and reduce back stabbing/brown nosing types of situation.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great company; high-performing environment; you will learn a LOT and if you choose to move on, you will have mad skillz you didn't possess before joining.

    Cons

    Only a few...no sick days (PTO only) and I had to take a cut of 12 days when I joined. Also the 401K match, while generous (dollar to dollar for the first 6%), is delayed for more than a year following start date.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink that time off policy.

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

    Pros

    If you like to travel, there's some good perks with flex travel on weekends and traveler perks. Accenture pays well too and offers great vacation and health benefits.

    Cons

    Senior management seems to have a general idea of where they want to go but the path to get there is pretty messy. Eventually they figure things out but it takes a lot of time (and creates a lot of issues) between making a decision on a path forward and executing that decision in a way that makes sense for the firm.

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

    Pros

    Great opportunity to grow, can build strong client portfolio, diverse projects if you take a little initiative and connect with people. People generally want to help your career advancement and will invest time in you if you take initiative.

    Cons

    Good projects are hard to find if you are not well connected. It's a common thing in consulting that projects vary so if you enjoy consistency then consulting may not be the right career
