For Accenture tech consulting, how typical is it to go from analyst to senior analyst after one year? What's the usual timeline for promotion and chargeability?

Almost always. Unless you spent half of that year on the bench. It's the SA to C promotion that's variable. Anywhere from 2-4 years.

I did SA to C in 1 year. 2-4 sounds real long.

You might have had specific circumstances that made you fast track it. I'm in the same boat as 15-20 other SA's in my network who all got above for Sig above for 2 years in a row and none of us got promoted. A few left the firm from frustration. I'm sticking it out for another year then bouncing if I don't make C in the next cycle.

You mean you got sig above as A and then again as SA this past year and didn't get the promotion to C? What's your alignment? I find it really hard to believe there is anyway you couldn't get it this year based on that

Sig?

Above my first year as an A and got promoted to SA. Then above in the next cycle as a SA but didn't get promoted. Then sig above in this last cycle and also didn't get promoted (so totalling 3 years at ACN so far). When I do get it next year, it'll be my 4th year at the firm. I'm in TC - Resources.

For the record, if you've been here 3, you were here when they added the SA position and promoted everyone en masse regardless of performance to SA after one year. If you were sig above and didn't get promoted to C, I think you need to have a serious conversation with your CC. Something's amiss either with promotion funding for your DTE or how the laddering meetings went down.

A3, yeah I did have the conversation with CC and MD of the project. They both put me up for promotion, but blamed DTE funding due to oil prices as the reason why I didn't get it.

Because of my hire date last year I wasn’t reviewed in last summer’s annual review cycle. My firm cut everyone’s salary by 25% in March and made major layoffs and more are coming. The firm made it clear that during this summer’s review they will not discuss salary. Any advice for how to have the conversation in the near future about a raise? I work exclusively with nonprofits and my current salary is not sustainable. Are consulting firms that deal with for profits also suffering like this?

Hi all. If you have ever encountered passive aggressive teammates, did you raise this situation to your direct report? If so, what was your approach and how did you deliver the feedback? This particular teammate is beginning to create a toxic work environment for me and I would like to diffuse this situation amicably, as performance reviews are near.

Debating round 1 vs 2 . Heard for over represented applicants like consultants they should always apply to round 1, but I’m at the window of promotion and will get better recs if I apply to round 2. Any thoughts on how much more competitive round 2 is for us? Any people got in over round 2 to H/S/CBS?

Working in my office used to be my primary source of work outfit inspiration but since working remote staying aware of what styles are in is nearly impossible. I live in a smallish town, so going out doesn't help fill in that awareness gap. Are there any online communities or slack communities where people talk about and share style inspiration I can wear at work? I'm 28, work in tech, and my office is a start up, so attire is casual. I'd also be interested in brands people follow.
