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

    Pros

    Training Opportunities
    Career Mobility
    Encouraging leadership
    Available senior technical career path
    A Network to find projects when one ended

    Cons

    Financial growth beyond initial salary is more role change driven.
    Each project change is like finding a new job, sometimes challenging

    Advice to Management

    Need to somehow change the mindset that everyone in the organization is competing with themselves. Once once gets high enough that attitude relaxes. I found that if I wasn't angling for my next role upgrade, i was able to do my work well.
    The senior leadership do a great job in keeping everyone target oriented. It would be great if it percolated into the operational leadership at project level early in their careerr.

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

    Pros

    Decent place to start a career in terms of pay, access to senior leadership and some learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Very poor alignment of interests and projects. Hard to get off of projects that were unappealing (especially if the client liked you).

    Advice to Management

    More flexibility in terms of giving people projects that align with interests / skills. That will be the only way you retain talent long term.
