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.

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

    Pros

    Good people to work with.
    Managed to get a project with a lot of work-from-home flexibility.
    Good training.

    Cons

    Poor guidance during the initial period when I was looking for my initial project. I received very little input/help from my group's management on identifying my first project.

    Pros

    Great workplace. There are two main offiices in Chennai, both are great places to work at, but one is far away from the city (But they provide you with transportation).
    Very friendly people to work with.
    Flexibility to switch between areas of work. You can start on a specific specialization and if you want, you can switch to another area though it might take some time.

    Cons

    You have a one year work agreement.
    Salary is on the lower side, though I heard some say it'll rise significantly after two or three years of being there.
