I worked at Accenture full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

The biggest plus is that they'll hire you out of college and they don't seem to care what your major is or how well you did in school. There are tons of positions so you can learn quite a lot in a short amount of time. They also provide a fairly good training budget so you can get at least one industry training class per year if you work the system properly.

Cons

They will absolutely kill you. There are two types of employees at Accenture - the worthless filler people and the small number that do all of the work. If you show any aptitude you will be abused. This is not necessarily all bad - you will learn a ton while you're getting killed but at some point you will burn out and need to move on. Make sure you are always looking for a new job after you get around 2 years of experience and don't worry about leaving anyone behind.

Advice to Management

Treat your people as better than just numbers and you'll have better retention.

    I worked at Accenture full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great perks, lots of company dinners/nights out, "see the world", prestigious. Helps you get future jobs, people know them, you are kind of a tech-rock-star. Bench time is basically free vacation.

    Cons

    They work you to death at times, lots of friction with the employees of the client sometimes, you'll never feel like you have a home because you are gone a LOT. Can be tough to move up, the upper ranks are crowded.

    Advice to Management

    Put even more emphasis on work in home cities for those that request it.
