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

    Pros

    People: Accenture is about people and it shows
    Talent: most of the people I worked with are extremely talented in one way or another
    Network: you will always find someone within the company that can help you
    Flexibility: to shape your career and grow in the direction you want to
    Core values: The whole company lives by the same Core values and it shows

    Cons

    As a consulting company you need to be prepared to work hard to deliver challenging projects.
    This is usual for consulting companies but you should be someone who is not looking to work within your comfort zone, it's a perfect company for people who want to build a career.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on people and retaining talent, this is what makes Accenture great!

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

    Pros

    There are a lot of pros working for Accenutre. They have great career opportunities, a never ending supply of interesting work, competitive compensation, wonderful benefits, great people, wonderful training programs, a tremendous number of brilliant professionals in their fields ready to help, and great core values.

    Cons

    This is not an opportunity for those that do not want to work. At Accenture everyone has a load of work to do and often times under very tight customer time lines. It is a challenge that I enjoy but many might find it stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Accenture is on a path to not only financial success but also to cultural success which is a much hard thing to achieve.

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

    Pros

    It's a big company so there's work for everyone across multiple fields. I think Accenture is an excellent place to jump start your career. Exposure to a lot of different people and projects gives employees opportunities to learn new things.

    Cons

    Changing projects and teams can be exciting but also bittersweet when you've come to grow really close to your coworkers - but that's just the nature of the job.

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

    Pros

    Progressive company, get to work in cutting-edge technologies, great compensation and benefits. Lots of learning and travel opportunities.

    Cons

    Client-facing roles are project based, so you are always in a job finding mode. Some of the processes are too bureacratic and needs some work. It is a very large company which makes it difficult to navigate.

    Advice to Management

    Provide career growth opportunities and try to make it feel like a small company. Provide ample amount of opportunities to get together to build comraderie.

    Pros

    The people AFS hires makes going to work every day a pleasure and makes up for the many annoying processes (see Cons.)

    Cons

    AFS is a subsidiary of a 380000 person company and, as a result, is a huge bureacracy with all the complicated and time sucking administrative processes one might expect.

    Pros

    Top tier management consultancy with leading players in every industry as clients. This translates to great opportunities and challenges. People and policies are overall great.

    Cons

    Typical issues associated with large organizations. Too many levels. Pressure to excel. Pressure to perform. So much of process that you will take couple of years to learn the ropes.

    Advice to Management

    Doing a great job
