Pros

Accenture provides stable work - when your project ends, you remain "on the bench" for a time while you look for another project. Most projects are flexible and allow working from home. There are many programs encouraging work-life balance. There are great opportunities for people right out of college.

Cons

Accenture does not provide as much training as they say they do, outside of the Consulting workforce. Work has a tendency to get shipped overseas. Pay is typically below market value. The promotion process can get long and drawn out - a promotion may be be used as an incentive to work harder, but it may take several months before it is actually given.

Advice to Management

Do not cut costs when it comes to compensating your better employees.

    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!
