    I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    With the large organization, you not only get options to work in various client and cultures also can explore areas like leadership, training others etc. - If you have potential you will get that - you will be searched by people if you have the right set of skills - support for learning in any area as most of the vendors has enterprise relationship with Accenture - benefits are really awesome - equal oppurtunity
