What is a CC?

Isn’t Accenture cutting people, they are being polite. Start searching or you will he gone soon.

They’re coaching you out better find something fast

If you leave in your own terms u will not be eligible for unemployment and will save them overhead

I'm over 100% chargeable and on RFPs and such, this has just been something thats popped up every couple of months by different people

Damn. It sucks that Accenture is not being transparent with layoffs. It gives them leverage at the employees expense. I just quit this month, because I started grad school. As far as grad school applications go, I heard this year will be even more difficult to get in, because there will be less funding and grants available to support students.

Don’t be naive Accenture OP. Why would they be mentioning it if they wanted you to stay. It’s a business you keep the employees you want and get rid of the ones you do not like. The end. They are being nice.

fug, I'm not even 25 and have been top of practice for promos, this is how it ends? lmao

A friend opened up to me about her extra marital interest/dilemma surrounding that interest. She realizes her pattern due to some underlying issue she needs to resolve and is seeing a therapist, yet whenever we talk she goes into details related to this guy and about her dilemma. I have listened to her for 3 months and weighed in where I could, and I care about HER and her mental health. But if ask about her mental health she goes into stories about this dude. How do I establish my boundary? 🙏🏼
