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?

This is a long shot but wondering if anyone has experienced this. I just changed to H1B status last Oct and my bank mailed me recently after tax filing deadline (I have filed tax in time using H&R block) asking me to fill out W9 if I am a resident alien / another form if I am not. This has never happened in previous years. Does it mean I missed a form using H&R block or is it related to the status change…?

Moving from big4 to core strategy firm (read MBB). Have 2 months before I join the new firm.

Don't want to leave any stone unturned and want to make it work.

I had an interview with the CCO last Friday for a role and I thought it went well cause he said he was impressed by my work and we seemed to hit it off but I haven’t heard back yet and am starting to get a little nervous. Is it too soon to send a follow up? Or is it just an American thing to use superlatives when they’re really not all that impressed...

Asking this question here for a reason. In our culture and set up, a majority of the time is spent in cooking. We usually don’t eat microwave meals.

Friend wants to join consulting for the pay. I don’t believe she has the aptitude or energy for it. We worked together in a much slower industry, and even there she complained of being overworked. I’ve sent her resources to polish up her resume and links for roles but she’s insisting on texting/long phone calls asking silly questions. Today she wants a resume review over zoom! She comes without having done her homework. How do I tell her I’ve given as much as I can? How do I decline referring?
