Something that severely gets into my nerves :
I advise clients on tech and sometimes help them debug stuff. This client told me they tested the solutions I gave and that it didn’t work, and requested a meeting to sort it off. We schedule a meeting. I just inspected their account and they haven’t tested shit, I can see the same code mistakes, they never tried to change anything.
I’m pissed. They’re basically wasting my time and I don’t even see the point in meeting with them.
Accenture tagged me to different skill set in project and asked me to ramp up in short period of time. I am new joiner to accenture. Just want to know in case performance is not up to mark because of skill change then accenture can put in pip during first apprisal also? Accenture Accenture India
My project goes live Nov 9th but I have accepted a new job. When do I put my two weeks in? I have been with this client for > 1.5 years. My gut says give notice Oct 15th but stay through Go Live week. I don’t want to jeopardize my utilization at my new firm. New firm supports pushing start date but obviously prefers an earlier start date.

Why is it that most people recommend to max Roth IRA before Roth 401(k) (beyond the match)? Since expense ratios in a 401(k) are so low I would think Roth IRA should only come after $19,500 is in 401k

How many of you are working remote? I really don’t see how this industry, especially in IT risk could go back to the office. I had minimal time prior to covid at client sites. Want to get a feeling around how many people here still remote and will be remote at least for the presumable future.

Buying a house, if we don’t put 20% down we’ll pay PMI - I was working on backfilling mine and my spouse’s Roth IRAs for 2020 before the deadline of May 17 - have like $2000 to go. Should I put the $2k toward my down payment and get as close to 20% as possible to reduce PMI or should I put it in my Roth IRA still? We know PMI is bad, but we aren’t selling our current house, keeping it as a rental, so it makes sense for our plans and we plan to hammer down the loan with extra payments to drop it

I signed out today. It was a mixed bag. I did like our sign out procedures this year. They did it the way I’ve suggested for years! In and out! I got sad when I cleaned my lab. Yet, it’s good to not have it hanging over my head to finish up. Bittersweet!

I got an initial offer from Accenture of 10.28 including variable. Afterwards, I got another offer from Mindtree of 12 fixed, no variable.

Please suggest what I should do.

Im getting into swimming and I’m like OCD about my watch tracking my workout as accurate as possible (even if it’s not the most accurate 🤷🏻♀️). I used the open swim for the first time yesterday and one down is 25 yds but one full lap is 50 yds and regardless I don’t think it tracked my swim accurately. Is there a trick? Lol I input 25 yds as a lap but maybe I needed to put 50? Silly little thing but it’ll drive me crazy haha

How much is too much reaching out? Some context: I’m on the bench and I spoke to my SM about my availability on a Monday. They say they will find me some work. But I don’t hear from him at all. When do I reach out and how often should I follow up until he actually gives me what I need. The layoffs here at Accenture has me stressing over WBS codes so much.

Things like that typically get taken out of the firm profit on the project. Not the expense budget.
It depends, if the team dinner is to celebrate a project milestone or big deliverable then absolutely fine to expense. If it is some rando event with people not on the engagement team, then NO
It's fine. Project write ups are used to fund all sorts of things.
I've generally seen it done as a split between billable and unbillable WBS depending on what the event is
So if it's ONLY team members getting drinks on a random Friday it's OK?
It depends on the contract with the client. "Expenses" often covers some meals and incidentals. So no problem.
Aren't expenses typically charged as a percentage of the project fees?
