Does anyone know anything about client financial analyst role at Accenture federal? I know someone preparing and it’s a case interview. But not client facing so wanted to see what they’re getting into.

Yeah my gf is a FA at AFS, don’t know much about the interview process but she’s pretty unhappy with the role

Thanks. Could you mind asking her about the interview? Also why she doesn’t like it? Just curious.

I interviewed, the case wasn’t even a case, just common sense. The first interview is with another analyst. They give you all the information you’d need, just make sure you write everything down and they make you repeat it back. The next interviews are with progressively higher people who also make you repeat it back. In the end they basically said the work will get repetitive and boring. I decided it wasn’t for me

I work in a group that has had to come in to the office regularly during COVID (lots of work with original documents and wet ink signatures). It’s real estate and title companies still require wet ink documents. One junior has refused to come in because he says he’s concerned about COVID. We all wear masks, close our doors, and socially distance. We’ve all had to pick up the slack for him. Just found out he’s taking his second vacation during COVID and visiting family in FL. I could scream.
