    I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company is well positioned to take advantage of the evolution to the New - Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, large-scale Digital Transformation, Virtual Reality and so forth.
    Strategy is the business is well thought out.
    Full end to end offering, Strategy > Consulting > Technology > Digital > Interactive puts the business in a better position that most competitors
    Focus on technological foundation to underpin an improving strategy and very strong consulting business bodes well for the future
    Ethical business that focuses on being inclusion and looking after employees
    Simply, one of the best companies to work for

    Cons

    Different business units can still feel like silos.
    Not for the faint-hearted, the reputation for high performance is maintained by employing the bright and best, but this also requires investing some time outside of our core project or consulting work

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.
    Investment in new technology is as important as ever.
    Continue trying to knock down barriers between our business units, this will help in the mid and longer term
