    Pros

    - Some of the most fantastic people I've ever worked with
    - Great work life balance
    - Amazing benefits
    - Best inclusion and diversity programmes I've come across - you can see they are serious about making a real change in mindset and have practical steps in place to break down barriers
    - Exciting, game-changing work

    Cons

    - Small fish in a big pond - difficult to impact real change
    - Management are cliquey and like-ability is key to progressing here
    - Career paths aren't straight forward. You have to be prepared to take a lot of sideways moves to progress and that isn't the right path for everyone
    - Easy to feel to get lost and feel demotivated

    Advice to Management

    Cut out the cliquey behaviour - we can all see it.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    * Accenture Operations, and Accenture as a whole, are extremely people focused. There are countless employee engagement, recognition and well-being initiatives and they really do value their employees.
    * Lots of opportunities to develop, both within your role and into other roles if this is what you want to do. You have control over your career.
    * Huge brand power, with exposure to a wide variety of large clients and projects in the UK and overseas.
    * Immediate and wider team is great - extremely supportive, positive environment. Management are also very approachable.
    * Great facilities, including free on-site gym and cafe.
    * Competitive benefits package, including generous pension scheme, employee share purchase plan, performance bonus etc.

    Cons

    Contract extensions, moves to FTC/Perm and promotions can take a while. However, if you are proactive and patient they will come.

    Other than that, I can think of no cons. Genuinely happy in role.
