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

Pros

Decent pay for entry level
Decent benefits for entry level
Decent bonus stucture
Excellent learning potential

Cons

Compromised Work/Life balance
High stress project timelines
High employee turnover
Lack of motivated and qualified talent
Slow promotion ladder (unless you work a ton and kiss ass)
Weak salary increases year over year and inline with promotions
Poor career guidance
Dog eat dog atmosphere between on project resources

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Instead of hiring to hit a certain number of resources, try hiring competent and talented resources. Level out the compensation scale across the United States (a first year analyst in Ohio makes about 35-40% less than an analyst in New York). Understand that the kiss ass mentality to get promoted and raises to be part of the "Good ole boy" network is sabotaging your firm.
