My day has arrived. Today, I, a Tech Advisory Consultant, was smacked by a surprise afternoon layoff call. I was assured my PA review was nowhere near bottom 5%, but the machine of Accenture has inscrutable ways of determining High Performance.

The most important thing is not letting this impact your sense of self worth. Brilliant people are fired all the time.

Which market are you in? What was your chargeability? Are you staffed?

Really sorry to see you go. I’m in tech advisory as well and I’m unsure about their messaging. Sounded like they were going to hire again soon?

Fully staffed in BD/chargeable projects (albeit outside TS&A practice) since April w/ 2+ months of work on mySched

Admittedly, my YTD chargeability was low at the time of PA, but CC confirmed story was good

Thank you for the kind words fellow humans. ✊🏽

Onward,

Been traveling again for several months now, didn’t mind at first, but with these new variants and limited vax rates, I’ve started feeling like the firm is putting me in a terribly unsafe position. Refusing to travel isn’t without career-limiting consequences. I’m mostly just venting, but a year ago we were told we’d never be on the road again like we were pre-covid, but surprise, here we are.
