    Not sure why the are rated so highly, possibly because they employ lots of grads who don't know any better.

    Pros

    They do great work and have some great clients. They are producing work on the cusp of the future and have a global network.

    Cons

    Internal functions haven't been overhauled for decades, a lot of internal functions are outsourced, they are still thinking like an accountancy firm in the 80's when it comes to Hr, Recruitment and Talent management. .

    Advice to Management

    Take a moment to look at your own business and its processes then compare them to your clients, you wouldn't advise them to follow your HR model.Linked in have built a billon dollar business on the basis people are a businesses' biggest commodity and Accenture still treats everyone like a number.

    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.
