Are you new to FB? I used SC1 because I was responding to a question by strategy consultant 1 (SC1 for short). Further, the question asked my group not level. Pay attention.

Best of luck in tomorrow's meeting. From what I seen here during the Deloitte and PWC layoffs is that the fishbowl fam sticks together when times are rough - I'm sure a few folks on here would be happy to refer you to their respective forks if you're willing to stay in consulting.

But OP, you're aware you're not an SC right? Do you tell people that?

And to consultanting, obviously I know ACN doesn't currently use the title partner. But since almost every other consulting firm uses partner for its leadership (since they are true partnerships whereas ACN is a public company) I still use that term in situations where I'm explaining to people in consulting but outside ACN.

like

@OP - So you were asking people in consulting outside Accenture an Accenture-specific question. Now all of it makes perfect sense.

The question about severance is mostly generic and consulting firm agnostic. The question about unemployment insurance is totally totally consulting firm agnostic. So no. The answer to your rhetorical fail question is no.

Was it for cause (performance, etc)?

I got an ominous email from a partner I don't know asking for a vaguely defined meeting tomorrow. I'm on the bench now and don't have experience being fired/unemployed.

Definitely negotiate severance and end date so you look like you are employed.

You should be able to get unemployment as log as you aren't fired for cause

What group OP? And yes usually a few weeks of full benefits and then unemployment

Hi guys,

Currently I'm having 3 offers as Globant, wissen technology and Publicis Sapient. Can anyone help me to decide where to go based on wlb, growth, sustainability even also on project. It's getting very confusing for me. Please give some suggestions.
