I think Skype is being retired by Microsoft. It is not user’s decision rather it is vendor who is retiring Skype.

Correct

Hi fishes - I’m with an MBB as a 2y Partner looking to move to B4, for a bunch of reasons. In active conversations with two of them.

What is the real trajectory that people here have seen at B4? And how much of that is bonus - base - other components?

🙌Would any Accenture 🐠 be kind enough for a referral?

In these times, if your referral bonus is $1k or less for seasonal employees you are asking for: 1. Employees who put in work to refer people that end up negotiating a part time option don't work on referring anyone else. 2. If the potential new hire gets an offer, employees have 0 incentive to convince them to accept it. This can even lead to them giving negotiation tips which get the new hire a $5-10k higher offer. They may even recommend accepting a diff firm's offer straight up.
