    I have been working at Accenture (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Accenture hires good people and gives them a fair degree of independence. Culture is oriented around accomplishing a lot for your clients, which leads to less of the cynical consulting mindset.

    Cons

    New joiners are on a much more regimented upward slope than those a few years ahead of them. Consulting hours can be demanding for those with families.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to find ways to keep people engaged if they're not moving upwards. Continue investing in training employees to have a wide-skillset, not just those that suit their current project.

    Accepting whatever Client demands
    Instead of rotating the resources in various projects and environment keeping them with the same project for a long time which makes the resources build their own comfort zones.

    Keep rotating the resources across projects or at least across different teams within the project in order to give them proper exposure to different technology and environment.
