    I worked at Accenture full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Great Mentorship
    - Great Team Dynamics
    - Learn on the Job
    - Don't need an MBA to get promoted to Partner, they value on the job experience more - only need an MBA if you choose to switch tracks.
    - Lost of room to grow and learn how to improve on your weaknesses
    - Environment that invests in you to make you a better consultant and deliverer for the company

    Cons

    - Little personal time
    - Sometimes poor quality of products delivered to customer can reflect on the promises of unreasonably little time to create the product by senior partners - this makes you produce work quicker but with little time to reflect and consider other avenues.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay
    consider more reasonable time frames to deliver a quality product instead of just a product.
