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

    Pros

    Opportunity to rapidly build a network
    Great place to start a career: Analysts will get twice the experience in half the time compared to an entry-level job in industry
    Competitive salary, great vacation policy (if you can take it, of course), good benefits, big discount on ACN stock
    Plenty of happy hours and networking events
    Work hard/play hard culture is fun (if that's your thing)

    Cons

    Extremely political performance review process (and getting worse every year); who represents you matters far more than what you've accomplished
    Promotions getting scarcer and scarcer at lower levels
    Negligible cash bonuses
    Long hours (but no worse than any comparable firm)
    Deplorable managers at a project level (the most intelligent people seem to leave after 2-5 years)
    Very difficult to move to a different industry/client: your first project is usually arbitrary, yet you will be pushed by HR to continue working in that area regardless of your skills / career interests
    Internal staffing process is informal; i.e. you must find your own next project or HR will staff in a (likely) terrible role

    Advice to Management

    Add a 360 Review process! The performance review process has become comically political
    Clean house at the Manager and Sr. Manager levels
    Don't mislead recruits about the ability to "work on a diversity of clients and industry" and then turn around and force staff them in a testing role for 18 months (happened to many of my colleagues)
    Stop telling us how great our revenue, profits, and growth are while continuing to pay 1-2% bonuses and 2% raises.

    I worked at Accenture full-time

    Pros

    Not very demanding at entry level, great benefits package, corporate perks, very flexible working hours, Upper management is great, great place to get started straight out of college

    Cons

    Pay is not very high, no bonus, can be boring, travel opportunities are not as easy to get as they are made out to be for solutions workforce

    Advice to Management

    Give employees better raises and more responsibilities to slow attrition
