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

Pros

provides additonal training and development. IT can be a great place if and only if you get the right set of people in the practice.

Cons

You can get stuck working with highly unprofessional people and have no ability to manage out of the project. The mgt. in the Hyperion consulting practice stand clear of them.. Extremely abrasive & unprofessional..

Advice to Management

Try leading more often.
