    Pros

    Great company, great projects and endless options to learn more about your industry of specialisation. You can take part in internal activities such as leading the training for your group, organising internal events, etc. You can also take part in internal competitions to solve a client's project, which will then be implemented in real life. The structure is very flat, very energetic and very stimulating. There are... a lot of very smart people willing to help you in your journey.

    Cons

    Staffing on projects can be tough. A lot of internal networking and politics can be involved to be the one someone go to for projects. You don't always land on the best projects. Aiming for longer term projects would be better to avoid being "on the bench" for too long...People on the bench are the first ones to be made redundant when times are tough...which was my case. Also some people travel an awful lot or go on... site 4 days a week. If traveling is an issue, Accenture is not the place to go.

    Pros

    So many opportunities, you can really explore different career paths if you are assertive.

    Cons

    The promotion process is obscure, no transparency and the person deciding whether you are getting promoted has never met you.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about the individual. It's one of your core values.
