Hi Accenture 🐠, I recently moved to a different state and bought a 🏡 here. Can I still keep my affiliation with my precious office (SF)? Or do I need to switch? What is the policy? Also, I am up for a promotion. Will the change of office impact my promotion? Thanks.

Wow, the fact that you are a manager and did not think through any of this is just mind blowing. You needed to discuss this with HR and get approved, if i was Accenture I would fire you.

Here’s your pragmatic answer. Everyone is wfh until early 2021. Where you are located doesn’t matter. Dont put in for an office transfer until after the promo hits in early Jan. If you are in the same region it probably won’t matter, if you are changing regions then it will likely change who you report to. Official policy is you have to live within 30 minutes of office. Right now with WFH from a practical standpoint, it doesn’t matter.

I think our official policy is maximum 90 minutes from your local office, but your point still stands

I don’t even work for Accenture. This is the wrong way to do any move. Not to mention salary and tax implications. You realize if you moved to a lower cost of living area, Accenture could lower your salary? Companies pay premiums to have employees based out of larger cities like nyc and SF were salaries are very competitive

Dude you know the VERY BEST case scenario, unless you moved to NYC, is your salary is going to be cut to local levels IF your transfer is approved?

Lol I live like 8 hours from my office. Y’all can relax with this “policy” nonsense lol. Office transfer wasnt even an issue, it shouldn’t be for any consulting firm. I was moving regardless of if it got approved or not tbh.

Thanks for the advice, Deloitte guy, about Accenture policy.
