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

    Pros

    Solid compensation structure on par with the peers
    Ok benefits
    Expert Career Model, that is amongst the best in the industry
    Good training
    Breadth of opportunities

    Cons

    Accenture still has pure consulting/services mindset, management and development culture, which one one hand makes it an incredibly successful at those lines of business but at the same time hampers its ability to do other things like building [software] products
    The performance measuring process is closed, subjective, arbitrary and can leave people stuck for many years through little fault of their own

    Advice to Management

    Be more differentiated in how you apply processes, people and leadership to different parts of your business - it is big and diverse enough to warrant more targeted approach.
