Increasing long hours and expected to work 24/7 as you move up the corporate ladder

    Pros

    Good opportunities to learn the IT consulting business. A plethora of training materials, a knowledge exchange to learn best practices, and bring you up to speed on any topic.

    Cons

    I wish they would compensate the high performers better that have stayed with the company. This would be less costly than trying to acquire experience highers.

    Accenture employs some of the greatest people. The people make the company so great. It is filled with diversity.

    It is not the easiest place to change directions in your career. It's easier to leave the company and return than to navigate internally.
