ACN 🐟: If a hotel is in policy do you feel as though it's okay to book unless told otherwise? SF hotels are insane and I stayed at a crappy Sheraton with more expensive options in policy.

Should probably just talk to your project PMO to see if there's a project cap. In policy Accenture wise isn't always consistent with client

I don't anyone would know or care if you saved 25usd a night. If it was 250, it would make sense

And your first week on a project is always going to be expensive because it's usually booked last minute. Expensive flight, limited hotel availability, etc. Projects know this and roll with it for your first week.

I stay at whatever SPG property is in policy and a reasonable commute to the office / client site, at he highest end brand that seems reasonable for average rate in the area. >$50/n difference is prob the most is push it - but I'm always ready to explain why in case I'm asked (typically it is proximity to work).

Agree with ACN1. Check if there's a cap with the PMO, or where others stay. My projects have always allowed choice under a designated $ value.

Didn't want to start project on a bad note by spending $350/night when there was something for $275.

I'm a woman working in a male-dominated organization. I'm also the newest member of the team. My coworkers have been given approval to travel to see customers, even internationally, but my boss won't let me. I've been held back in more ways than just travel & have even had accounts taken away from me & given to my male coworkers.

I discussed this unequal treatment with my boss 10 days ago, then abruptly yesterday I took a call from HR telling me that I was being let go.

Any leads for hiring?

Would appreciate some help with how to handle ambiguity with requesting information from clients. Example: we are upgrading an add on of a client’s ERP. We asked for support contacts for all applications and add ons. that we need to talk to. While working the project, we were told by the client that we had not engaged xxxxx support team. When we told them they hadn’t told us that this particular team existed, their response is “this isn’t an application or add on, it’s a utility.”
