Which practice at Accenture? Responses may highly depend on the type of work you’re doing.

I can’t speak to their projects but I rarely work over 40-45 hours within T&O.

I’ve also never had an issue with “requesting” time off.

To be honest, life at B4 and ACN is pretty comparable. I’d go with whoever is paying you more, assuming you’re not close to making partner or managing director.

Responses will also vary by project

The only right answer is “it depends” bc there are so many variables that no two people have the same experience when you consider practice, type of project, team dynamics, client expectations, etc

Desperately need some motivation to stop order taking. If I'm lucky, I'm barely gonna hit 100% this Q. I get a ton of leads and feel like I just need to give them what they want and go to the next. But in reality i do non work related shit for at least 1-2 hours per day. When I WFH, I normally wake up 5 mins before meetings. There's enough time but I'm burnt out having not taken vacation in 6+ years. I can't vacation now. I need to crush numbers and hopefully take some time off in January. HELP

What’s your PTO like? I just started a new position with a $25k increase in salary from my previous role, great benefits (besides PTO), and a good environment …. But I start with 0 hours of PTO and accrue up to 12 days over the course of a year. Am I crazy or is this terrible for a tech position? My previous role, which I hated, had unlimited PTO which we were encouraged to use.

Stop talking about how busy and frantic you are with work on a holiday week. It’s not a badge of honor, and I’m not impressed. There are only two reasons why you’re busy:
1. You suck at planning.
2. You don’t know how to set boundaries.
3. You don’t care enough about your direct reports to set boundaries so that they can relax this week.

Hello!

Can these be negotiated? I’ve been a 10 year Special Agent/Federal Agent and Officer with the military. Tx!
