I worked at Accenture full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

I worked for Accenture for five and a half years in the Federal Services group. Many people will tell you that consulting in the Public Service sector gives you a better work/life balance than in the Commercial sector, and I found that to be true. My hours were typically limited to the weekdays (I can maybe recount one time I actually came into work on a weekend), but towards the end of my career, I was working 12-14 hour days.

Accenture is a great place "to launch a career". I found that when I produced quality work, my supervisors found ways to make my career grow. Going from Analyst to Manager in five and a half years is pretty good, by any consulting standard.

Cons

As you are rated against your peers, it can get very competitive, especially as you move up the company. Another issue I had was that I didn't like that I was often limited to working on the "big client accounts", and it was hard to find projects in spaces that I was really interested in (e.g. mobile).

    I have been working at Accenture

    Pros

    Very client centric focus which is good for our customers. A great environment. People are very respectful with each other. I would recommend working here to a friend.

    Cons

    Very corporate atmosphere. Red tape can easily become an issue if there is a situation that falls outside the norm. Compensation is OK but not great when comparing to other companies in our industry.
