    I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Interesting work, great people, opportunity to learn and grow with the energy you're willing to put into it. Strong corporate commitment to inclusion and diversity, strong, pervasive programs to do the same. I have felt supported, valued and been proud of sponsorships and partnerships that have reflected inclusion of our LGBT people (and other diversity dimensions, though that one is particularly relevant for me).

    Cons

    Demanding, fast-paced. The need to travel for client work may sometimes feel like a bind.

    Pros

    Excellent professionals, high technical and management level and performance, inclusive culture advertised, supported and enforced.

    Cons

    Be ready for extra work and overtime from time to time, but overall a good work x life balance. The "Truly Human" internal initiative is amazing.

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

    Pros

    - network/knowledge pool: I can get answers to my questions from across the world in a timely manner, I can train myself on any topics
    - culture/ work life balance: friendly people, open door culture, leadership very approachable, social events, smart people
    - fortune 500: get to work with big companies and learn industry best practices
    - social benefits

    Cons

    - same problems that all big/global companies have
    - flexibility: don't believe what they tell you during campus recruitment - very hard to get project/staffed in your area of interests
    - regional model: very hard to find work outside of your region, less travel unless you specialize in a certain area that require it, unlikely
    - lack of onboarding: i had to build my own onboarding deck when I joined, nobody welcomed me, no chart to help new joiners understand who does what within the organization
    - separation between technology group and consulting group: at analyst level, we do the same type of work but one group is paid 10k less, also less budgets for social events, very frustrating
    - mostly staff aug roles
    - facility: hard to find a desk, no healthy food options, no snacks, no gym - out of all firms, we have the worst work space environment but the AWESOME staff (s/o Marcela) makes me want to go to the office
    -bonus: barely 1-2% outside of promo

    Advice to Management

    make it clear to new hires (graduates) what type of work they will do when they join a certain group/division - stop the marketing BS ''once you join, sky is the limit - you can find projects to your liking and blablabla'''
