It's an Outsourcing firm. Not sourcing in typical sense. AWFUL company leadership in C-suite. Don't believe their bonus pitch for a second. They haven't paid it out in YEARS. Benefits are terrible, promotion is difficult from consultant to director. They claim to have all this training and investment but it's all BS. Run far away. I worked for them for many years, so this is not second hand knowledge.

Correct ACN. RFPs for IT or F&A Outsourcing services. They use a total comp approach so depending on level your target bonus is 10-40% of salary. They then add this to the numbers to say oh you make X but they set their targets so stupidly high without investment (e.g grow americas revenue 30% with 3% headcount growth) and targets are on a total company basis meaning it needs to be a perfect storm of amazing global performance to hit targets. Also the fall of for bonus payment is stupidly high. So if only achieve 90% of goal then 50% bonus payment, anything less 0%. Look at the enterprise value of the firm, its less than all acquisitions combined and barely more than their acquisition of Alsbridge.

Also they get by without paying bonuses by riding out the brand name and wait for employees to turnover as they get beyond frustrated from no bonus and no investment for growth. It's better to go to a Big 4 or stay at ACN and leverage their offer for more $.

Very tight supply chain / sourcing. Not particularly strategic, but they do good work.

Yes, it'd be in sourcing. Just not sure if it would make career sense to go back to sourcing but the money sounds good. Right now I do more of change Management and transition for procurement deals at ACN but was in sourcing prior.

Similar boat as M1..I worked for them for a little while and was so happy to leave. They never pay bonuses, the benefits / co-pay is way too expensive, you'll do a ton of RFP work and very little strategy, leadership honestly sucks, getting promoted is a popularity contest, and almost everybody hates the CEO.

Wow. Thanks for the insight. How do they get away with not paying out bonus? I guess that's why the promise of a high salary to account for terrible bonus and benefits. Is it RFP work as in I'd be developing and running RFPs on behalf of clients?

Thanks M1. Are you currently still in sourcing? Looking to get outside Accenture but not sure where to go or what to do.

Ahh yeah. That's the issue with Accenture, I'm up for mid-year but the initial feedback I got so far is that there is no "budget" but I'm severely underpaid so wasn't sure if an offer would actually help push it within a company like ACN.

You'd be better off going to a Big 4 or another boutique to get higher salary. Might take some years to normalize but will get there.

Thanks for the insight!

Honest question: when you see a job listing like so, is your reaction... A. Good for them insisting on BIPOC; this industry needs more diversity & hiring the same middle aged white folks doesn't cut it anymore. or B. YES, every agency/brand should champion diversity but is it fair, right or even "legal" to overtly dissuade white people from applying? Can't they just "hire the best candidate" regardless of race/gender/etc? I get B but I'm team A because the 2nd ? in B hasn't exactly..worked.

Add a pinch of salt and a drizzle of olive oil and knead. Then you just roll it out as thin as possible and add whatever you want! Anything! Bacon? Onions? Peppers? Mozzarella? Chuck the whole thing in a 500F oven for like 18-22 min.
