I’ve spent my entire Accenture career finding interesting leadership and following them on their projects. As you make them look good, they want to continue to surround themselves with a solid team that they can rely on. As I’ve grown in the company, I can say one of the most important things to learn in order to be successful is how to build a team with people that want to work with / for you. So, be that groupie. Network with your project leadership if you like them. They’ll likely need you on their next gig and if you have a relationship with them, bully to you - you’ve got the in

Accenture...I'm just worried about the bench being overcrowded if I roll off with everyone else at the end of our contract. Wondering if I should try to roll off sooner rather than later

Start networking so you can find other roles. Can you reach out to your TFS and see what’s in the pipeline? It’s better to be prepared now that you know what’s up. And if all that fails, ride out the bench and jump ship 🚢

All depends. I’m a firm believer that everything is about relationships and demonstrating your value. If the people on your project believe you to be valuable they’re already thinking of where to put you. Chat with them and find out. If not, start looking for open roles ASAP and start building a network. Most of the time I staff people I know. I know what to expect and they know already how I want things done.

Fellow Auditors, Since we all are aware that there has been a sudden pay rise of 20-30% in recent past (6M - 12M) specially for experienced staff to Manager level due to acute shortage of resources at ground level. Hence, I sometimes wonder as to who has borne all this extra cost so far. Is it the Equity Partners or the Client 🤔 In case Partners, than I really think that even though current hot market might have boon for the most but absolutely nightmare for the Partners group. Contd. below.
