I have a ton of coworkers who are and I do not think they work any less than others who are not




I was 60% as a tax senior manager, then 80%. Definitely worked more proportionately but it was worth it to me to not work full-time. I had to learn to build and then enforce my boundaries. Was my own worst enemy for a while until I convinced myself it was okay to not be “on” all the time.

I know some who found it challenging to balance a reduced workload with the demands of client deadlines and firm expectations. It sometimes felt like they were still expected to do the same amount of work in less time which could be stressful.

Dear Fishes,
Total experience of 5 years. I started working with Accenture from last six months. However I applied an IJP transfer into a different deal in same level my package is 4.65 lpa and the team in which I am moving, the minimum budget for an associate is 9lpa. Am I eligible for hike? Can I ask for hike? If yes, then how much descent hike I can ask for. If no, then I will be not eligible for my next hike as I am changing the team, till 1 year there will be no changes in my package.


Hi All, currently Visa is approved, stamping is yet to be done... But the package is 60k only and I heard from colleagues who are already there, that this is not sufficient... I am working at a package of 12 LPA in India, and I think switching is the best option rather than going to US. Need your opinion please
