Pros

I know it sounds trite but it is so true - the people at Accenture are amazing. I have never experienced anything like this. The support throughout the organization (at all levels) is amazing. I have received random calls from Senior Executives (Partners) asking how I was doing and offering any assistance while I get acclimated. The culture is great - clearly one of the biggest pros. The ability to move around - great ... work overseas - great ... move into different industries - great. This is such a change from my previous experience!

Cons

The only downside so far is the salary - the company is not competitive with peers.

Advice to Management

Remedy the salary difference.

    Pros

    One of the best places to work straight out of college. However, it takes too long to make any "real" money as a Senior Executive. I increased my salary by 400% by switching jobs 2.5 years in with Accenture and think that was the perfect amount of time to "learn the ropes" there.

    Cons

    The work-life balance is pretty poor at Accenture. You work nearly Investment Banking hours (not quite thankfully) but make significantly less.

    Advice to Management

    Don't cut corners.
