    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!

    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.

    Pros

    So let me start by saying if you are in the US and a coder this might not be the best company for you. This is a consulting/advisory company so know what you are getting into before joining.

    -Good benefits like 401(K), health benefits, legal assistance plans and much more.
    - Pay is market relevant for Consulting/Advisory. Do not compare it to Facebook or Google, you will be disappointed.
    - Great people to work with.
    - A lot of training.
    - Sponsorship for certifications.
    - Good work life balance if you have in you to push for it. Sometimes you need to ask to what you want. It will not be handed to you.
    - If you like to travel, a big plus.

    Cons

    - Lower bonus compared to the other similar firms.
    - Experience is quite dependent on your team.
    - Huge firm so one has to work extra hard to be visible.
    - Vision not covered. It's employee paid.

    Advice to Management

    - Tell college hires what to expect when they join consulting.
    - Improve bonus structure.
    - Heath, Dental, and Vision plans need serious improvements.
    - Few old-school consulting folks need serious rewiring of their brains. The industry does not work like it used to in the 80s and 90s. Work-life balance is a very important aspect to retain people.

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

    Pros

    -Smart people who want to be here, and care deeply about public service
    -Great formal training opportunities through Accenture University in Chicago
    -Frequently mission-aligned work to our clients
    -Not under a microscope to deliver, so you get a good amount of creative freedom to try new solutions, new ways of selling/delivering
    -Easy to plug into commercial practice area to pull cutting edge technology
    -Leadership has families of their own and models work life balance in a really authentic and natural way
    -True meritocracy when it comes to promotions - predictable and transparent

    Cons

    -You have to hustle to find projects, which can be difficult until you find your "tribe" to move around with
    -Very wide gap in projects, so people who cut their teeth and work long hours on short sprint projects get paid the same as someone loyal to a large, lethargic account and works a 9am-4pm

    Advice to Management

    -Find a more transparent and open way to recruit candidates into domains in addition to pulling from arbitrary target schools
    -Find a way to develop and maintain a distinct Accenture culture, away from client sites
