    I have been working at Accenture

    Pros

    Excellent people exciting work, very innovative, creative and gives you a feeling of belonging. Career progression is easy if you want in and are willing to work in an exceptional way not just work hard and late.

    Cons

    Compensation is falling behind competition of late, especially E&Y, Deloitte etc. However if Accenture start using equity more aggressively as a reward function they will crush the alternate. Money isn't everything though... so really up to you and your circumstances

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More on rewards and retaining talent as Accenture people are exceptional and everyone wants them,

    Pros

    Interesting, diverse work with many of leading and most prestigious companies within each industry.

    Cons

    After recent restructure, management consultants are expected to specialise within an industry. There is not much scope to move between industries without being realigned
    Many senior leaders have recently left. Some key growth areas like "management consulting"

    Current Intern - Associate Software Engineer in London, England
    Current Intern - Associate Software Engineer in London, England

    I have been working at Accenture as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    -Personal Growth - In the few months I have been at the company, I have learned more than my entire time at University.
    -Great Benefits - This applies more to graduates and above, but the company really looks after you, especially when it comes to family related benefits.
    -Lots of variety - Being such a large company, you have the opportunity to work on projects in industries from Financial Services to Utilities.
    -Amazing people - Working with some of the brightest people in the industry is a great perk to working at the company.

    Cons

    -Work/life balance can be challenging - Late nights and weekend work can sometimes be the norm, depending on project demands.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to junior employees more - I have seen several instances where mistakes could've been avoided had management listened to the advice of an Analyst (or equivalent).
