    Pros

    As a graduate, ACN provides all the necessary tools and resources to learn and build basic management consulting skills. You are given the freedom to drive your own career taking the direction you want. The scope of work and opportunities to learn a huge, in a day to day job as well as from the people in the company.

    Cons

    As great as freedom to drive own career may be, it is also its own downside as there might be lack of support or direction for those unsure of their own strengths of career path to take. Performance rating system is quite tough, but fair. A lot of traveling is great but also can be overwhelming.
