    Pros

    Consulting: 1. You get to work on a variety of projects and with variety of project teams so there is a lot to learn. 2. Additionally, you are surrounded by smart colleagues which forces you to excel in anything and everything. 3. Most of the times, you get to work from client site and there is lot of travel involved (only if you are interested...else choose a project with low / no travel). 4. There is... flexibility in terms of choosing projects. Normally, you get a choice while taking on a project.

    Cons

    Consulting: 1. Accenture is not a good paymaster. Generally, it takes people from smaller companies but at a lower pay-grade because of its Brand Value. 2. Accenture puts you in such a bracket that you will not be able to leave also (because of work) and if you continue, you will always feel that you are underpaid (considering your friends from earlier companies of equal / less caliber).

    Advice to Management

    Improve the salaries in consulting to retain employees.

    Pros

    Everyone is very helpful and open Very inclusive and diverse company Lot of opportunity

    Cons

    Your job may involve a lot of travel. Usual travel is you leave on a Sunday night and come back on a Thursday night. And that can be every week depending on what you are working on. High expectation Billable focused. It is a consulting firm so for every hour you don't bill the client, they lose money

    Advice to Management

    Manage travel expectations with clients better. It will be great if we can travel every other week.
