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

Pros

Exposure to multiple areas of the business, Challenging projects, Community Outreach, 25 Days of Vacation/year, Flexibility to transfer to other locations within the company, Excellent Training

Cons

100% Travel, Pay is low compared to other consulting firms, Terrible HR organization (very metric based, not much "humanity" for a HUMAN resources group), Employees can be "pigeon-holed" very quickly, Pay is based upon starting city and won't be adjusted if you transfer offices (If you start in NYC and move to Detroit, your pay won't be reduced, but if you start in Detroit (where the cost of living is much lower) and move to NYC, you won't be compensated)

Advice to Management

Care about your people, in good times and in bad. If things are going on in their professional or personal lives, recognize that and help your employees overcome their problems - don't judge them for it or let them go. It's easy to have someone's back in good times, but when business is slow, or an employee is going through a rough patch, don't turn your back on them. Reward company loyalty and ask your subordinates what they actually think!
