I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

the pay is good to great.. you can make a lot of money if you know how to play the game. (get laddered in the upper ranks) if you don't like the work, just be patient as it changes frequently.

Cons

Its notj ust a job, its your life. 80 hour weeks. 3-4 nights away from home every week. you have to be willing to take a lot of crap and not complain.

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

    Pros

    Accenture Brand
    Good salary if you know how to negotiate
    Growing , stable company
    High ethical standards & culture

    Cons

    Projects are hit and miss. You need to chose a project that you are passionate about.
    Accenture re-organizes a lot. I'm not sure how the re-orgs affect people.
    Long hours are usual. Accenture does not pay OT but expects lengthy hours. Make sure to negotiate a good pay package.
    Accenture is trying to compete with the Indian IT services firms. Many positions are going overseas to India and Phillipines. Client-facing and pre-sales roles will increasingly be done by offshore (or lower paid onshore folks).
