My exit opps are in industry within the functions I have the most knowledge. And, many large firms have their own internal change capability to support big programs.

Change is a really great place to be. We are involved in every part of the project from crafting the solution to implementing the changes. We do the "people" side of consulting, so you have to be an advocate for the end user.

It's also a very visible role. Even as an Analyst or consultant it's very common to have regular meetings and working sessions with senior clients. Promotions, raises, and bonuses come quick and often, and you will rarely be unstaffed because we are in demand.

Downsides: you have to be comfortable leading training teamsbecause that's a huge part of what we do. At the same time, you have to fight a perception that training is ALL we do.

Exit opportunities: I honestly don't have this figured out, and it might be a problem. I'm not sure that I'm qualified to do anything but consulting.

Hi Fishes.
I’m an L4 IC. I just got promoted to L4 in an off cycle promotion. It’s been only a month and since it’s a CS based role we work in Night Shifts. I feel monotonous within a month as it is a Virtual role.
I started to look for roles in JobFinder. The HMs are okay to consider, but the thing is “How do I say it my Current Manager??”
Can anyone give a subtle idea, such that my Current manager agrees even though its a month only?

Hello guys I joined Accenture 3 months back as PBI specialist from a non technical background. Now I am considering a change in role/job since I am not liking it much.

Also what is the notice period during probation. Accenture
