    Pros

    The work culture is superb, very professional, and good company values.
    There is cab pick up and drop service, there is work from home flexibility, which makes a great work-life balance. If you are at the right place then high possibility of domestic as well as international travels. Opportunity to work with big names in the industry as Accenture is a well renown global organisation.
    The offices are very beautifully made, has good canteen (which is regularly audited and changed), leisure area, luggage drop/locker area (if you are travelling from another location) etc.

    Cons

    Since it is a big organisation and has huge employee strength, there are lot of things which are system oriented. eg: post questions on payroll, leaves, tax, legal etc on portals. Post CVs on portals, Fill time sheets fortnightly etc etc.
    At times, it gets difficult as you would not get quick solutions to problems.
    Accenture pays quite less especially to people who are at the bottom 3-4 levels of any work stream. Once you are out of that zone, your pay improves a lot. Promotions is not easy as you would have lot of competitors to move up the ladder.

    big company , large number of employees , so minimum learning per person if the work is distributed. Depends upon individuals capability to learn and grow.

    Pros

    Accenture knows how to take care of it's employees. Accenture provides a peaceful working environment and gives one space to grow as an individual. Every employee at Accenture is a valued employee. The top management is very encouraging and always give credit where it's due.

    Cons

    The only down side that one could find about Accenture is it's long working hours. Accenture has 9 and a half to 10 working hours a day. But if you love the job, then it doesn't really matter, does it?
