Hi All, I'm in notice period and supposed to join Accenture later this month. However, I'm finding Accenture PMO folks extremely unprofessional. They're asking to sign GDPR agreements with clients, generate IDs in the system and so on. Doesn't this constitute dual employment in a way? Since I'm still contractually bound to IBM, how can I enter into agreements with 3rd parties for a future organisation. I don't know what's their expectation. Anyone else faced the same? Opinions pls.

You arr correct. Accenture cannot make you sign GDPR documents or even raise client system requests unless you have been officially onboarded.

I work on a relatively large team. The AGC I report to will soon be taking a 6 month sabbatical, and I’ve been tapped to temporarily assume their role and responsibilities during this time, including taking on direct reports. Should I look for a (temporary) comp bump, or suck it up and enjoy the resume building opportunities?

So, I’m leaving and my leadership is pissed. I feel like their attitude is “well you’re leaving so now I just need you so I can download your brain.” and I’ve never felt more like an object and I’m trying not to internalize how guilty I feel about causing others to pickup my slack. Context: solid roll-off plan and I did all of my deliverables for the next month by working through the weekend. Any advice on how to reframe my thinking? Alternatively, AITA? They did just promote me.

A friend of a friend asked if I could refer her to my firm. I agreed (seems like a good candidate and decent fit) since it’s hard to get through just by applying directly online and she doesn’t have a recruiter. We haven’t really talked about the referral bonus. Should I split the referral bonus if she gets hired, or is it fair to keep it since I helped her get the job?

I lead a very small team. One of my employees was recently upset that a teammate was promoted, despite them being here longer. They are interested to get promoted themselves. This person's review is coming up and I really don't want to promote them. I don't think they are there yet, despite tenure. Someone could argue they are, though, suppose. If I don't promote in this round, they'll likely quit. I'm so torn on this. Would you stick to growth markers or promote for the sake of culture?
