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

Pros

- Good compensation
- Some genuinely great people to work with
- Can make quick progression if your're good and know how to play the game
- Opportunity to get involved in pretty much any kind of work (see caveat in 'Cons')

Cons

- Long hours
- Isn't as meritocratic as some might have you believe
- Constant pressure to move to next level (applies to Consulting only)
- While there is opportunity to work in all sorts of areas, it can be very difficult to get a role in what you actually want to do

Advice to Management

The decisions you make can have a profound effect on the work/life balance of your team

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

    Pros

    Accenture is a fabulous company with immense diversity in intellectual capital and people. It remunerates competitively and exposes you to many opportunities for professional development.

    Cons

    I can't think of many. It is a large organisation but does not suffer from any sense of complacency or inertia. I would say for the very ambitious who want to run and manage operations, there is limited opportunity compared with working in a smaller organisation.

    Advice to Management

    Capture the spirit of Bill Green and infuse it in the company's management DNA going forward.
