Interviewing for a commercial role at Accenture, working in federal spaces right now and I cannot deal with anymore Big4 fed work. Any insights on Accenture? Do managers have revenue/sales targets? Do you have to have 10 different "firm initiatives" or other non-chargeable work to look good for promotion?

Yes on insights, no on sales targets (only MDs and sales--oriented Senior Managers have explicit targets), yes there are extracurriculars which we call +1s - they are the things that build culture and grow the firm and i think you'll find them everywhere. If you're interested in 100% client delivery role, you may want to look at contacting through an agency.

Sure thing! I guess I would react by saying "it depends" - everybody needs to find how to apply their skills and talents to help the firm and there's no single path to success. Some people are naturally good at sales while others want to lead thought leadership and others yet are really good at enforcing and growing the culture. Its all needed and valued, so we want people who can all contribute in different ways.

Attorneys with the firm often send firm-wide emails advising of in house openings with a corporate client, and solicit recommendations or resumes of qualified candidates.

I have a standing offer with Accenture (AFS). Due to coronavirus, the recruiter told me they are pausing staffing of external people like myself while they take care of internal people on the bench. My recruiter said he would touch base monthly during covid, but usually I’m the one to reach out to him. We haven’t spoken since mid March, so should I reach out? I totally understand if they’re still in the same position as before and nothing changed since mid March in terms of hiring.

Fellow Fishes - How did you all deal with failure in your career. I was ambitious and smart. I was in IBM and considered to be one of the best of my class. I was fired and haven’t really found my way. I don’t know what to do anymore. 3 years after the fact, I am still at an entry level position. I hate myself for letting things get this bad but I don’t know how to get out of this perpetual cycle. I tried working my ass off but have not been able to shake off that unfortunate past.
