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

    Pros

    There are plenty of pros but honestly because of two main reasons I have very bad feeling. first of all I get paid very low even lower than my previous company ! and also They assigned me to a non related task.
    The only reason I accepted their offer with knowing of making less was improving my skills, working with edge technologies.

    but now I get paid at least 40K less than average and I do tasks which does not require knowledge of programming at all !!

    Cons

    - Compensations are very low compare to other competitors.

    - They may put you in a position which is not even related !!

    Advice to Management

    It is so sad after working 3 months I came to a decision to move on to my next Company, If you do not get paid well, If you do non related job you won't stay !

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

    Pros

    Extensive training, Trainers were very kind and cared for workers.

    Cons

    Training was too extensive, allowed you to get burnt out fast. Very hectic and fast passed environment. I felt like I was back in college (job ended up burning me out on getting my Master's right away). Some people seemed very uneducated, more interested in drama than work. Did not think I was doing "well" enough until I handed them my two weeks and my manager just about cried... There needs to be incentives and praise if you are doing things right... CONSTANTLY was working OT.... Also, lacking in upward growth, unless you want to be an Underwriter.

    Advice to Management

    Work on your Mortgage Training class, it is dull and allows you to get burnt out crazy fast. Could probably complete whole training in just a month instead of several months.
