My Uber driver (a former employee of 1 of the oil and gas companies) dealt with quite a number of consulting firms. He singled out ACN & straight out trashed the firm. What's up with that

Truckloads of people got laid off from oil companies last year. I assumed everyone would know that. He was just one of them. ACN has a questionable reputation even among us consultants, so hearing it from a former client... hmm. But whatever, I was just passing the message across lol

I’ve worked side by side w ACN in a number of projects. My impression is kinda similar to Mazda’s at Hertz...yes there are a ton of them and you’ll probably get one (ie large market share), they probably won’t leave you by the side of the road, but...you won’t enjoy it, you’ll bitch about the experience, and you’ll tell your friends “that sucked"

I don't work for ACN. For him to randomly single you guys out, it just might be something

A4 nailed it. Something led him to his current career.

And no A4, uber driving is not his career lmao. He said he's got an offer in corp America, to start in a few weeks

I hope u reflected his poor judgment in 3 stars. Ouch

Glad he’s got another career lined up. Uber is a tough gig. While they recommend optimized areas and notify if events it’s hardly a living. In terms of Accenture reputation, I can only reflect on my time, client win rate, and practice. I don’t know about tech implementation, which is where most of our business is, but since OP referenced the ticker, I’ll just point to that to speak for itself...

Mazda’s are really good cars

I had a technical interview with IBM last wednesday and on thursday they had set up a managerial round for discussion. It went well and the manager asked me about my expectations. We had few discussion regarding the salary and finally I was told that HR will get back to me. It has been 4 days but I didn't receive any call from the HR. Should I consider the fact that they might have rejected me even after all those discussions ? Shouldn't the HR atleast have a discussion ? IBM Tata Consultancy

Towards the end of some of my phone interview questions they will ask what my minimum salary requirement is. The problem with Digital Product Management is there are companies that will pay 90-100k and others that will pay 150-160k. That is a big difference and I think I have priced myself either too high or too low for a couple of them and ended up not going further.

What is the best way to counter that question? Would asking for their range be a better approach?

Fellow Fishes -

How did you all deal with failure in your career. I was ambitious and smart. I was in IBM and considered to be one of the best of my class. I was fired and haven’t really found my way.

I don’t know what to do anymore. 3 years after the fact, I am still at an entry level position. I hate myself for letting things get this bad but I don’t know how to get out of this perpetual cycle. I tried working my ass off but have not been able to shake off that unfortunate past.
