I worked at Accenture full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Lots of training opportunities, varying project experiences, working with smart people and learning a lot from them. Travel opportunities for those who want. Great place to spend the first few years of your career then you can go anywhere from there.

Cons

You work a lot of long hours. While the traveling is fun, it can get old when you realize that some aspects of your personal life suffers. Hard to build a relationship when you're gone every week. Also traveling is not the best if you have a family. It's also a large company and sometimes you can feel like just a small fish in a big sea.

Advice to Management

Don't lose connection with the people. Sometimes groups can get large and you lose connection with your business group. Almost felt a closer connection with project team than with my rep from a HR perspective.

    I worked at Accenture full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Accenture provides professional and technical training to resources.
    Very good training ground for those new in the workforce.
    There are a lot of resources/knowledge exchange that can be used.
    There are team buildings and networking events.

    Cons

    No work-life balance especially for offshore resources who works on the bulk of dirty work.
    The company does not support inter office transfers even if the reason for migrating is family.
    Promotions are usually based in favor of your supervisors despite your contributions.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management should also listen to their employees including their personal situation not just think of their own interests for the company.
