Do I have to disclose where I'm working from if I'm on the bench? Flew to mallorca 2 weeks ago, I've paid up a month on the condo I'm at near pollenca. I log in and help with proposals and what not but during downtime I'm at the beach, exploring or biking. Nobody knows. Might stay here longer don't have a flight home yet...

I don’t know what Accenture’s policies are, but as long as you’re getting your work done, and you’re mostly available for US hours, I don’t care where you’re working from.

Just do all your work man. Nobody thinks twice about what someone else is doing if all their stuff is getting done. Also, be really careful with that laptop. Don’t want to have any issues and then they have to ship to your home.

Nah. Just get your work done and be available during US business hours.

I had to go remote because of hitting compensatory a few years back. Based in US, but decided to travel and work in India for several weeks. Ended up having network issues, updates that wouldn’t go through, and kept getting messages that my device wasn’t polling so lost access. Had to call support and they decided it might have been due to location/network. It took days to figure out and regain access. Luckily, my project knew where I was and understood why I had to use my phone. I guess it’s less of an issue if you aren’t staffed, but still could run into snags like this and be in the awkward position of having to explain or go into a local office 🤷🏼‍♀️

Might be some privacy issues using your work computer outside of the US.

No one will care. I've done this a million times from all over the world. As long as you get the work done, why would they care where you do it from if everyone is remote.
