    I worked at Accenture full-time for more than a year

    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?
