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

    Pros

    Work-culture, friendly environment, flexibility, work from home option, brand, big organisation and hence having good exposure to handling more volumes. Options of jobs/department switching. Overall a very good organisation to work and stick to it permanently. The company is right for people who fall in the higher section of the pyramid in Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs.

    Cons

    Less challenges, huge organisation and hence very little space for innovation, no much travel opportunity, promotions and salary hikes.

    I have been working at Accenture full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -People. They hire some of the sharpest minds in the market. You'll learn a lot from your peer group.
    -Pay. For me, even though I had not asked, they raised my pay by 400% when I joined.
    -Processed. There are processes that are in place and are followed to handle harassment and unethical activities.
    -Employee engagement. Even though it can be much better, it is better than most companies out there.
    -Performance evaluation process. One of the most competent and meritorious there is. No personal favours, no politics, tiny things are not held against you in the review.

    Cons

    -The amount of work that each employee handles is equivalent to that two employees handle in other firms. This combined with shorter-than-industry timelines make the work look daunting. Thankfully, the pay and satisfaction is thank you enough from the organization. You won't feel like you are providing more to the organization that it is providing you.
    -Rigid structure. The roles and responsibilities are clearly outlined. It makes for a difficult place to learn new skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing a great job, guys! The rigidity and the monotonous projects could use some attention.
