Pros and cons of joining Accenture from a smaller firm?

You need to watch out for a lot of stuff being piled onto you because you don't realize at Accenture's scale / size that's a whole separate role/person. This has been a pattern I've been put into over and over again.

That's good to know. What do you say is the biggest pro of working there?

It could be a great opportunity but don’t be offended if an offer comes in at a lower level than you’re wanting. Big companies, Accenture included, doesn’t want to drown you and for reasons stated by A1 above, smaller firm levels and roles don’t always translate 1 for 1.

That's good to know but the MDs I spoke with indicated they want me to come in at the same level. Just curious about what the offer will be at this point. What would you say is the best thing about working there?
