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

    Pros

    Varied work. You get to work with lots of different teams on different types of projects. Large cohort so easy to meet lots of new people.

    Cons

    Progression and roles depend on your network and doing extra work outside of your day to day. A lot of processes aren't very transparent and are therefore shared by word of mouth which can make it difficult.

    Advice to Management

    I think Accenture's processes regarding progression, alignment etc should be communicated more effectively. I think performance should be standardised and should not be determined by 'who shouts the loudest'. The current system fosters nepotism and results in existing privileges being exacerbated.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunities, well structured career progression and professional development. You get to work with talented people on interesting projects. It can often lead to opportunities in Industry as well.

    Cons

    It can be really, really hard. The culture is slowly changing but it's still very much expected that you work long hours, without compensation. There is also an up or out policy for the consulting workforce that some will find very stressful. Also the sheer size of the company can be a bit daunting for some.

    Advice to Management

    Don't plan for overtime.
