    I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great people - most people that work at Accenture say one of the main things they enjoy are the other people they work with. Management is generally very positive, although as with many large companies there are always outliers. Diversity at the company is outstanding. Exposure to different industries/companies is good.

    Cons

    Experiences at Accenture hugely depending on your alignment. Technology Consulting, Management Consulting, Strategy Consulting, Operations, Digital, or a number of other alignments. In many of the technology-focussed roles, project durations can be longer, which gives less exposure to different clients. On the other hand, in some of the less technology focussed roles, project durations are reduced, but this comes at the expense of promotion times on many occasions.
