Huge company, lots of opportunities, but most opportunities are not meant for you

I have been working at Accenture full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Fairly decent amount of paid holidays (25). All of the perks that come with travelling (per diem, miles/points, etc) help make those vacations essentially free.

Very good people to work with and for. You are given opportunities to stretch yourself.

Benefits are ok - ESPP allows you to purchase stock at 15% discount, 401(k) match up to 6% at $0.50 per dollar.

Cons

Pay is competitive once you join, but you will quickly see your raises/bonuses align with everyone else at your level.

Pierre (CEO) is focused on cost cutting, making what few "perks" we had non-existent. Policy is to use the corporate card, but if you want the points, you have to pay the $75 annual fee now. On the plus side, this helps with bottom line and creating shareholder value.

You can get screwed in annual review if you join a project at the wrong time. No paid overtime, even though you will be working OT more often than not.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let top performers branch out a bit and try different functions/areas/industries. More than likely, if someone can excel at one task, they can excel at something else.
