Just so I’m clear: you want to screw over the old company that hired you, that your new company is asking to help you and then succeed, and you want to figure how you can make Accenture’s life as difficult as possible when their goal is to help you as a client. Gee, I wonder why you were let go?

smart

OP - keep in mind that the new company may have preferred to hire you just because of your prior work experience with Accenture. I’m also ex ACN and have no lost love for them as they treated me horribly especially when I was also cut. Revenge for me would be to call their BS, appreciate the hard working consultants but give the MD a hard time for all the pork and overhead he/she adds. Beat them up on price negotiations as you know how the internal costing and billing works. That my friend is sweeter revenge than being a petty old man 😎

Was thinking of being overly nice to the offshore team while pushing the onshore people into crazy hours, and also sending all my documents as screenshots, making my slides horrible before I send to them

It saves it as a pptx, but editing the slide is a nightmare. This trick is ok for copying text etc, but pretty useless if you are wanting to reuse the slide

Shop local consulting. That way your also building a fallback relationship if this gig doesnt work out, and you also help your neighbors and peers.

You'll also get better rates, and they are usually ex-big consultantcy ppl anyway.

Wouldn't it be a complete upside - OP went from someone they deemed low performing to a client that buys Accenture - it's a win for accenture,
