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

Pros

Amazing training, Opportunity to do real strategy work. The IT Strategy practice feels and acts like an elite group within Accenture.

Cons

Very opaque promotion process. Interactions with the Systems Integration practice can be surprising at first. Difficult to figure out how to balance the interest of staying staffed and chargeable and being available for Managing Directors and Senior Managers who have direct influence over your career.

    I worked at Accenture full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some areas are very strategic in approach - which is why they are steady stock.
    Work from home, smart people, excellent benefits (PTO, 401(k), health, etc.), decent salary.

    Hard to say if I'd recommend to employer so left that button undone. As a young professional just staring out, I'd say grab this opportunity and learn as much as you can. It's a great place to make connections and learn, learn, learn. As an experienced hire - it is a very dramatic culture shock. Would I return? I don't think so. But the right person/background could make a great success here.

    Cons

    Reorganization should be done for the purpose of advancement of goals, not because it's been 18 months and let's shake things up.
    Work from home culture enables people to be more aggressive and hide behind the computer/phone. They can become abusive and many "leaders" do nothing to halt that behavior because the abusers are "high performers" and therefore untouchables. Makes for a very uncomfortable environment.
    Not enough willingness to dare to be different. Too much structure kills the edge.
    Opportunity to move around organization can be limited. There are perceived notions of what is a "power" role and what is not.

    Advice to Management

    Shake things up by being creative and truly innovative - not just using the words. Remember the cobblers children have no shoes? It's the same with Accenture.
