I know this is gonna sound dumb but if I'm reading an article at work while on the bench, or watching a video, is it monitored?

I can't believe how many people think that ACN (or any of our consulting firms) wastes money trying to monitor what the **** you watch on your computer. Can you imagine the damage to their reputation if you had to tell somebody you got fired for watching a YouTube video while you were not staffed? Let alone the news?

When I used to work with Accenture , a team member used to bring red box cd to work. She was part time in the project. MD used to come and ask her about the movie and she used to provide reviews like she was giving status update ..😭

Think about how busy everyone at Accenture is... Except for you. Now think about how busy your management is. Do you think they have time to monitor or care about what you are browsing?????

SA1 - I would monitor his activity if i'm the ceo, just for giggles.

I always assumed the activity was saved, but only reviewed if you were showing problems in other areas. Like if your manager said you were only watch porn onsite, then they'd review it. But if you were just browsing the news or whatever at lunch, no one gives a shit.

Watching on your Accenture laptop on vpn?

I doubt they actively monitor each person. Probably only take a look if you are on some kind of watch list (or on the bench longer term).

Yeah, lol nothing bad, just like news recap etc

Why take a risk? I've developed a special liking to watch all kinds of videos on my phone. Be safe.

Feel free to read your firms electronic device compliance policy if you want the straight answer

I'm pretty sure if your manager caught you watching porn ONSITE there would be no need for a "review". Confident/10 on that.

No firm saves all their transactions or activity of their consultants. Think about it in terms of liability. If they were in some sort of litigation, It'd be in their interest to NOT be able to produce that (rather than being able t)
