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

Pros

The people you work with are great. Everyone is in it together and has a very collaborative attitude regardless of level. If you work hard, perform well, build your network, and continue to extend yourself, there is a lot of opportunity for advancement and quickly.

Cons

There are times when you are expected to work long hours, especially if you are extending yourself to take on more to show well. The work is rewarding and the people you work with are in it with you which makes it not bad, but 10-12 hour days regularly are the norm.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay for entry level
    Decent benefits for entry level
    Decent bonus stucture
    Excellent learning potential

    Cons

    Compromised Work/Life balance
    High stress project timelines
    High employee turnover
    Lack of motivated and qualified talent
    Slow promotion ladder (unless you work a ton and kiss ass)
    Weak salary increases year over year and inline with promotions
    Poor career guidance
    Dog eat dog atmosphere between on project resources

    Advice to Management

    Instead of hiring to hit a certain number of resources, try hiring competent and talented resources. Level out the compensation scale across the United States (a first year analyst in Ohio makes about 35-40% less than an analyst in New York). Understand that the kiss ass mentality to get promoted and raises to be part of the "Good ole boy" network is sabotaging your firm.
