    Pros

    Excellent people. Huge variety in projects going on. Company is trying to shift to a local staffing model, which I like.

    Cons

    Huge company means some bureaucracy when it comes to applying for roles. Be ready to network and make connections in order to get into good roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the incentive system for Talent Fulfillment Specialists.

    I worked at Accenture full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Standard mega consulting and outsourcing pros:
    - exposure to many environments, challenges and the global work place
    - accelerated learning and progression (for high performers)
    - travel which is fun when you're young
    - stability because these companies are so highly diversified

    Cons

    Standard mega consulting and outsourcing cons:
    - travel gets old as other priorities become important in your life
    - culture is not quite as fun as it used to be
    - quality of counterparts has been impacted due to diversification of workforce (namely outsourcing and experienced hires that don't fit in)
    - you don't "live with the decisions you make" and the changes you implement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. Keep up the amazing work!
