I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Great starting salary
- Excellent career prospects
- Some great people
- Global presence
- Good training opportunities available

Cons

- Internal politics - 'he who shouts loudest wins'
- Difficult to specialise in anything specific
- Can be placed in any role - complete lottery
- Contrasting styles within managment

Advice to Management

Convince managers to take a more holistic view of the company, rather than focusing on their own projects - management work within silos on their projects when some staff members could also contribute their skills to the wider Accenture community on new clients where they may have a specific interest.
