Accenture just had a monster quarter, things are busy here. Varies quite a bit by practice though of course

Nature of Q1 and start of Q2. Hopefully things should start signing.

Which firm? We are still sold out and hiring.

Our bench is empty and our pipeline is a mile long.

Need advice for resigning while on bench. I already have a start date with the new employer. Should I do a traditional two week notice or give <=1 week notice instead?

I’ve read on here that sometimes they will let you go day of and pay you out for two weeks but I don’t see why any firm would do that for somebody not currently performing billable work...

I was due for a promotion but then covid hit, and during the peak of layoffs/furloughs, I was given the run-around that we have agency wide promotion freezes, etc. Over the past month, a handful of people have been promoted.

How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible?
