Does Accenture rescind offers? I got one 2 months ago but the TFS hasn’t staffed me on a project yet. Didn’t get hired to the bench.

Have you done any networking outside of your CC and TFS? I would not solely rely on your TFS for staffing.

Takes awhile to get staffed that time of year and it is hard to network when you are new. Stay patient. I actually found my first project by working on a +1 ADP project. 5 months.

I can only assume that this is some kind of weird Accenture Federal thing where they need to line up a client role for you before you get hired. I’ve never heard of anything like this happening in commercial. Did you sign an offer letter with a start date? If not I suspect you did not actually get an offer.

Thanks, I appreciate it. But it was a formal written offer that I signed and submitted back in December. But haven’t heard much yet so it’s just been a waiting game. I’ll try and see if an old colleague I know that work there now has any insight.

For what it’s worth, you may only be slightly behind the average hire at AFS right now. I accepted an offer at Accenture Federal Dec 7 and I’m starting next week. Huge delay over the holidays and I had two noncompetes for legal to review. I’m staffed now on a project.

Oh wow I accepted an offer around the same time. Hopefully I can be staffed soon too! Really want to leave Booz soon.

Accenture doesn’t have a bench so it’s just a cost cutting measure to keep prices down

As mentioned - Federal does its own thing and isn’t representative of the rest of the firm.

Looking for S1 through Senior Managers in Denver and Salt Lake City. Work with local PEs, strategics, etc; not an overflow bench for larger markets. We hardly ever travel, even pre-Pandemic.

Also seeking transaction tax managers and senior managers (core tax managers to move into TDD in either market).

How far into implementation and execution do you get as a strategist (and what's your specialty). I notice social strategist tend to get way more into the executional portion, even writing copy etc. whereas brand strategy tends to roll off once the briefing process is done. Does brand strategy ever go on shoots or vendor/production meeting and are they responsible for it? Just had an unclear moment where it seemed like I was expected to vet production partners and I didn't realize I should've .
