Along these lines, what about creative hair colors?


Accenture Strat here (yes I know, not MBB.) But FWIW I have quite a few colleagues with visible tattoos (including myself). Piercings are even less of a big deal. It’s 2021, no one cares anymore- especially if you’re in a big city.


thanks bud

Partner got their nose pierced once. It lasted for one day. She was told (not sure who) to take it out immediately. So there’s that.


lame, let the shawty rock that nose jewelry


I mean, no one sees my n**s, so it’s all good!


I don’t imagine it would be an issue.

Super chill at Bain

I have visible tattoos, never had an issue

Kept it covered the whole time

nose piercings are gross

Hello Fishes!

Hope you're keeping safe!

Just wanted to understand what is the exact role of Management Consulting Analyst in Accenture Strategy and Consulting, India Capability Network.

Also, it'd be great to get some insights on the types of projects existing in Capital Projects Practice at Accenture CN.


Have an offer from a dream company but I'll need to go in at a lower level. Knowing that I can bring a lot of value to the company (read- I know my worth), I negotiated with the hiring manager to have a level/comp review 6 months after employment. If I hit all my goals (ie, prove myself) within that time frame, I'll get a promotion and salary adjustment.
Should this be in writing in the offer letter?
How detailed should it be? I assume I won't know what goals to set till I start...
