If you’re accenture - it depends on the project. Most of the time they won’t tell you NOT to charge OT but when you do it and they see you can always say “well that’s what we were told during orientation” and most of the time they’ll say don’t do it again...and the other 5% theyll say you do you boo

That depends on whether they’re making you work OT yet not allowing you to claim OT. Talk with your manager about your hours. Say something like, “I think this project may require more than 40 hours a week from me. Am I allowed to bill more than 40 hours, or would you prefer I check in with you each week when it looks like I might be going over 40 to see if I should continue to work?” Then your manager can either tell you to just bill everything, or maybe he wants you to work the week on-site but take Friday off if it’s been a lot that week. Doing it this way let’s your manager control your hours more and not be surprised if he thinks you should be getting things done in 40. I wouldn’t bill 41 hours, 42 hours here and there, though. I’d only bill OT if you’re 45+ when it’s clear you’re working late or working a weekend. You’ll also probably told you shouldn’t bill travel time and that’s fair.

Either way lets cut to the chase....if you ask for OT you risk getting booted from the project, developing a bad reputatiom, getting a shit raise and eventually being shown the door. You knew the game when you joined...suck it up. Now that being said...you are new to consulting so you are probably really slow at your job compared to people w more experience. Consider the hours you work over 40 to be an apprenticeship

Are you salaried?

No. Hourly

Go straight to the president

Are you an hourly employee or are you an analyst w a salary that is eligible for over time

(Unless it’s an excessively long travel situation or you really do work diligently on the plane/train, both of which I’d talk to your manager about.)
