    Pros

    Wonderful culture
    Great work experience
    Friendly policies
    Good compensation

    Cons

    No facilities such as gymnasium, corporate tie ups with guest houses, travel agents or even shopping. It'll be good to keep the employees engaged with the organisation.

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

    Pros

    -Steep learning curve allows for you to build confidence and learn at an early stage of your career
    -Lots of resources on a global scale, so if you ever need help with anything there's always someone to reach out to

    Cons

    -Limited opportunities in terms of projects (everything is tech delivery)
    -Terrible company structure (huge divide and pay discrepancy between CD&O and C&M)
    -Lack of clear delimitation of what it takes to move up the organization. Overall very challenging to move up (min. 3 years to make consultant from analyst, vs 1.5 years at B4)
    -Lack of opportunity to move around within the organization, even though this is something they sell you on

    Advice to Management

    Stop stepping on people's careers just to reach the top. Listen to analysts, and stop treating employees as if they're all replaceable.

    Pros

    - Everyday is a new challenge
    - Able to wear many different hats over the course of a project
    - Most team members are very intelligent and easy to work with

    Cons

    - As you are always trying to please the client, the hours can be inconsistent
    - Although there is a big push that 'you guide your own career', i feel that your career is still very much guided by leadership

    Advice to Management

    Be true to the Accenture vision and allow employees to try out new projects and clients, even if it results in lower chargeability.

    Pros

    -Great brand to have resume.

    Performance evaluation should have a bigger say from the project caz they have a better view of a person's performance than the career counsellor

    Pros

    Amazing opportunity to build an amazing 5 years out of school at a pace few other places can offer...making you MUCH more marketable when you turn 30.

    Cons

    Work / life balance can be challenging, particularly if you are traveling. Also, in general, consulting has long hours and an intense pace. Not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking for ways to both develop and reward talent.

    Pros

    Lot of opportunities to grow, very good benefits, huge knowledge base (but you can get lost)

    Cons

    Poor collaboration, high level of stress to make money, resources to support the employee are there but are not very efficient, formal training is hard to be approved, multiple delivery methodologies in place with tons of documents but not too much support to put it in place since everybody is too busy, you are basically on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Make an effort not to transfer your stress to employees, create a real collaborative environment, use your global experience to sell new technologies.
