I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great company for new analysts to join and grow
Great super senior executive leadership - strategy and execution
Core values, dedicated and committed employees

Cons

Not a diverse organization, feels odd especially in the silicon valley
Not very accommodating to experienced hires
Salaries not competitive
Emphasis on building sales, networks, relations as opposed to delivery, skills, knowledge

Advice to Management

Develop a career model based on expertise, knowledge and skills - strive to strike a balance between sales and delivery
Let 'phenomenal' and 'incredible' profits translate to better bonuses and salaries
