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

Pros

- Huge company with lots of opportunities to work in nearly any field--especially tech
- Ability to see inner workings of some of the world's most amazing companies
- Great brand that is respected by future employers when seen on a resume
- Very diverse company with people coming from a broad array of backgrounds
- Pay is good coming out of college
- Awesome benefits with lots of holidays and vacation time
- Many of my projects have allowed me to work remotely or at different hours depending on personal needs
- Huge global network of both current employees and alumni

Cons

- So big it's easy to get lost in the mass of Accenturites--hard to make really strong, long-lasting network connections
- Small offices in the Bay Area making it difficult to get a conference room or even sometimes a cube
- Slow to adopt latest technologies across the internal enterprise
- Only do lip service to encouraging career opportunities--does not encourage pursuing interests in education or other projects
- Once you become a senior manager and above, your career turns into a salesman and project staffer
- Easy to get stuck at one client for over a year or more
- Switch clients in the middle of the performance review cycle will potentially damage ones performance reviews and hinder promotion
- Little if any interaction between senior management and entry-level analysts
- Slower career progression when compared to other consulting companies
- If you don't like tech or outsourcing, you probably won't like working for Accenture since most work orbits around these areas
- Most confusing org structure EVER--partly because it always changes

Advice to Management

Allow entry-level employees more flexibility to pursue interests. This will keep talent around longer.
