Hi! I’m starting at a consulting Big4 firm in a few months. Just after a month of joining, I have to travel internationally to visit my home country for family reasons. Will this affect my onboarding or getting staffed on my first project? Or even my general reputation?

Thanks!

Ask your manager now. They should be able to provide you with more guidance and it’s inevitable that you’ll have to ask them anyway

Hi Fishes,

I recently joined a client project this month on 4th May and currently working in Accenture.
The issue is that till now I haven't received any KT and there are a lot of expectations from me. I tried to understand the process but it can't be done without KT.

Now after all this attitude, I want to get released from this project. My billing is already done. Need some suggestions to proceed further.

Also, augh, these PIO shots are a real pain in the rear! (See what I did there.)

There was no V/O. Only audio was the music track. It’s really hard to say “maybe you could turn down the volume on your laptop” without coming across as condescending.

I agree and it’s the same role that I had originally reached our manager about, he has almost no technical experience as well. 🤨🙄
