Accenture blows bro

like

@MCK1 - chargeability is a metric used by Accenture based on how much time you are billing (or staffed) to a client. The longer you are on the bench, the lower your chargeability %. This is considered when determining your annual rating although we are supposedly restructuring the whole performance management process

What level are you? Workforce? I'm rolling off in a few weeks and already am trying to fend off emails about availability

The Strat Bench is particularly deep

Bench since November. Got the Email yesterday.

ACN4 - what level? Performance last year ? Chargeability this year ?

11. None joined August and was on the same project August-November

Whoa..that is brutal..sorry to hear!! Although if u were on a project aug-nov..u should have decent chargeability this year, correct ?

Curious - what's chargeability?

@ACN5 so a dumbass way of saying utilization

Hey @D2! glad they pulled you up from JV, pal

@ACN5 simply pointing out all you had to say was "another word for utilization" and @McK1 would have known exactly what you meant.

Performance management has been restructured already last year.. At least in Strategy
