@op - sorry to hear that. Also not sure what acn1 is saying - but Accenture strategy has a hiring freeze till end of summer - and as go forward strategy unlikely to hire analysts and consultants as experienced hires

like

This is all temporary. Just one more step forward - onward and upward! I know it's hard. Hardest part for me has always been not knowing what's next, but you are clearly intelligent and savvy to have gotten where you are. Go out there and kick it.

Just received the "Connect with Partner X in Person" email. I'm a 2nd year Consultant in S&O - 99% utilization this last performance year with all 2 PEs, light internal work though. My counselor had no idea and told me I was a 3 at consensus.

99% utilization and laid off?! Wow

like

Past utilization and rating doesn't mean jack. They are looking at your forecast, profitability margins, salary and how replaceable you are. Don't drink the kool-aid

The managing partner of our office took me out for lunch afterwards - a little awkward, but it was nice to chat. My whole network within the firm has been incredible - tons of support and emails offering to connect me to industry clients and even competitor firms. Overall, I'm going to do my best to commit to another job ASAP, and then enjoy a stress free summer.

I was a February hire 2 years ago - February hires are evaluated for promotion at MY, with promotions effective 2 years from hire date.

Sorry, everyone! Been a busy day. The whole ordeal was about as pleasant as it could have been. As others have noted, severance was 8 weeks + PTO, which was another 5 weeks for me.

Feedback was essentially that my performance was fine, but I didn't get a 2 at YE and thus wouldn't be eligible for GSAP this year. Because of the emphasis on encouraging turnover, they decided to separate. It was mentioned that they could start re-hiring within the next year, and that I was rehire eligible and should keep in touch.

like

Do you mean to say that you were on track at MY because that makes sense. Nobody gets promoted at MY or feb. everyone gets promoted at the same time. I was a January hire as well and cross checked with my teammates.
