    You don't have much opportunities to grow in your professional path, The people usually work in the same position for years, the salary is the same for year also. This good to stay for 2 o 3 year and move

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

    Pros

    Some good managers who give structured feedback, lots of opportunities to learn new technical skills

    Cons

    Cumbersome procedures and training. They rank employees against each other and hire a ton of undergrads straight out of school who know nothing and the pay the developers who do the work less than them

    Advice to Management

    Too many managers and business analysts, not enough developers who can do the work

    Pros

    Great compensation package. You will learn a lot. Work with smart people. Flexible hours. Lots of PTO. Diverse environment. Great culture.

    Cons

    They take care of you really well as long as they need you. But they drop you like a hot potato as soon as they don't need you anymore. It doesn't matter if you're a great employee.

    Advice to Management

    Please take care of your best people even after they roll off.
