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

    Pros

    Lots of knowledge, solid methodology, access to training and improvement, can learn project management on a very large scale, diversified portfolio of client base

    Cons

    Even if you are accepted, it does not mean that you belong. Simply put, it's a Frat house, if you did not join it in college, or right after, there is no way you will be accepted for a good while. Plenty of people cannot but work at Accenture because that's the only thing they know. They would not survive one day elsewhere unless the new place was an extension of past engagements. Processes are too rigid and don't allow much for innovation. Most importantly, there are pockets within the company where the work environment is better than others

    Advice to Management

    Don't be too hierarchical. Recognize those who do and those who lean. Foster new ideas and thinking. Manage growth properly and don't allow growth to manage you.
