I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

You hear a lot about the burn out that occurs for people in consulting roles, but there are also many other opportunities, especially in the Corporate Functions space. Work from home and set own hours.

Cons

While the flexibility is nice, tend to work around the clock supporting all parts of the world. People in the corporate functions space are work-aholics.

    I worked at Accenture (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you buy into the culture, and the culture buys into you, a huge amount of exposure and opportunity world wide

    Cons

    They do not always practice their core values, and respect for the individual might be hard to find. The communication between Sales staff and client contact staff was limited, even after concerns were registered with Team Lead.

    Advice to Management

    Check how many associates registered concerns with Managers, who promised follow-up, and never hear anything. Manager Open Door policy is good in theory, but when issues are raised and do not get followed up on by Manager (which is against corporate policy) it adds to the job frustration.

    "Work takes priority over everything else. Be prepared to slog or lose out to younger folks who will work all nighters."

    Pros

    None that I can think of. Even if pressed to say so here for the purpose of reviews. If you love work over everything else, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Work on multiple projects and assist in areas that aren't of interest to you in your down time.
