What level are you? Will work if you are at a junior level.

Meh.. I'm an analyst, but still feel obligated to work up until noon on Wednesday. Then again, our go live is in 2 weeks, and I don't trust the outsourced team.

Accenture India Employees - (1) How much does job location matter in getting good projects for a fresher(ASE- Lvl 12) ? I am currently in Entry Level Pool-Bangalore and will be 'Soft Locked' to Bench in a month's time. I wish to change my job location to either Indore in MP(top priority) or to Pune(MH). (2) Should I wait till I get a project in Bangalore and then change location only if WFH gets over (if that is possible) or change it right now ? (3) Any idea till when WFH will last? Thanks 🙏

Finally went back to the office today and went to lunch with a couple colleagues with a client we are working to retain after the relationship partner retired. Great lunch, great conversation.

Can we not? I just laughed it off bc how else do you respond in front of colleagues and a client? Blech.
