    Pros

    Good place to learn, support available, great attitude from co-workers, ability to contribute from early on if you earn it. Lots of perks such as team meals, phone bills etc.

    Cons

    Will be expected to work late/ weekends if client needs it, big focus on promotion/ laddering detracts from collegiate atmosphere by placing peers in competition with one and other

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management can seem quite distant when working from a client site, especially those in the upper echelons

    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).
