I worked at Accenture full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Standard mega consulting and outsourcing pros:
- exposure to many environments, challenges and the global work place
- accelerated learning and progression (for high performers)
- travel which is fun when you're young
- stability because these companies are so highly diversified

Cons

Standard mega consulting and outsourcing cons:
- travel gets old as other priorities become important in your life
- culture is not quite as fun as it used to be
- quality of counterparts has been impacted due to diversification of workforce (namely outsourcing and experienced hires that don't fit in)
- you don't "live with the decisions you make" and the changes you implement

Advice to Management

None. Keep up the amazing work!

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

    Pros

    Great place to launch a career as someone fresh out of undergraduate school. It is known that the company does well with its retention efforts at this level as opposed to professionals coming into the company.

    Cons

    By the same token, this company is very purposeful in recruiting undergraduates because more times than not, this group does not have much of an idea of what they want with their career. Therefore, it's a greater investment because people will stay at the company because they know no different and hopes of promotion. It deems itself as being entrepreneurial which is misleading because sharing ideas or improvements are not rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Management is very hit or miss. I think it's very important to allow for feedback which can be incorporated in training for managers. I have had both sides of the coin with great managers and horrible managers but the great managers are not recognized.
