    Pros

    - The people
    - The projects
    - The office location
    - The learning experience and working with state teams
    - Being able to to contribute significantly and take ownership of the work even as the intern

    Cons

    Little or no interaction with the project manager. Very little notice of the deadlines. Sometimes it was a little diorganized but nothing not manageable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Considering: more formal program for the interns in the India office.

    Pros

    More onsite opportunities. You will get to work with leading US based clients and due to its wide source of people, you will have everything from a corporate firm !

    Cons

    once you enter in the company, that will be your biggest salary hike. After that only if you get promoted :) Nothing much I can think of otherwise

    Pros

    - Working with bright people across countries and cultures
    - Managers very supportive of your aspirations
    - Opportunity to work on activities ranging from client-facing delivery to product development - there is lot of opportunity for internal movement depending on your interests and personal constraints
    - Great training and education opportunities

    Cons

    - It's great to be process-driven but not when it becomes bureaucratic - which is what happens very often
    - At times, leaders are overly obsessed with "who will get the credit for this"

    I worked at Accenture full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Accenture is a great company to work for. It provides ample opportunities to learn and enhance your skills. The company also has great values and some amazing leaders. Starting salary is good.

    Cons

    Growth can be slow, depending on the kind of support you get from your counsellor. Not the best model for growth and promotions. As a result, financial growth can also be very slow. The company also does not have good HR. It's more friendly to the management than to the people. Work-life balance is horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make HR more people friendly, looking after the interests of the employees.
    Make performance management process more transparent.
    Improve work-life balance.
