I worked at Accenture full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

I worked for Accenture for five and a half years in the Federal Services group. Many people will tell you that consulting in the Public Service sector gives you a better work/life balance than in the Commercial sector, and I found that to be true. My hours were typically limited to the weekdays (I can maybe recount one time I actually came into work on a weekend), but towards the end of my career, I was working 12-14 hour days.

Accenture is a great place "to launch a career". I found that when I produced quality work, my supervisors found ways to make my career grow. Going from Analyst to Manager in five and a half years is pretty good, by any consulting standard.

Cons

As you are rated against your peers, it can get very competitive, especially as you move up the company. Another issue I had was that I didn't like that I was often limited to working on the "big client accounts", and it was hard to find projects in spaces that I was really interested in (e.g. mobile).

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good company culture, extra events, training, travel and large enough to grow your career. Great place for someone looking to diversify there resume and grow their abilities.

    Cons

    Lots of work in a very high pressure environment. Most collegues are very competitive and the ability to balance work and life can be a challenge. Travel isn't for everyone and the events can wear you out too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
