Pros

I worked for Accenture for five and a half years in the Federal Services group. Many people will tell you that consulting in the Public Service sector gives you a better work/life balance than in the Commercial sector, and I found that to be true. My hours were typically limited to the weekdays (I can maybe recount one time I actually came into work on a weekend), but towards the end of my career, I was working 12-14 hour days.

Accenture is a great place "to launch a career". I found that when I produced quality work, my supervisors found ways to make my career grow. Going from Analyst to Manager in five and a half years is pretty good, by any consulting standard.

Cons

As you are rated against your peers, it can get very competitive, especially as you move up the company. Another issue I had was that I didn't like that I was often limited to working on the "big client accounts", and it was hard to find projects in spaces that I was really interested in (e.g. mobile).

    Pros

    - Team Oriented
    - Fair remuneration
    - Good knowledge portals for independent learning
    - One of the few internships that allows you to experience client meetings

    Cons

    - Long hours (expect to work around 14 hours daily or more if necessary to complete task)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Could provide full-time opportunities for returning interns whom have performed well instead of having to go through the mainstream application or troubling project leads to assist in referrals.
