Accenture also had done a recent implementation at one of our sox clients .team was asked to leave as well.guess it happens all the time@.expectations between client and firm don't match .its not exactly all poor performance

Pretty sure that happens to every firm. I could give examples where we've replaced Accenture, Bain, McK, PwC, EY and others. More people related than any individual firm - i.e. Poor communication and expectation setting.

Deloitte been at it for a while... and when the finally had a shot they blew it. Our client now thinks Deloitte is a bunch of McK-wannabe clowns

Ok ok we can be polite here haha. I've been on multiple projects across the cube farm from Deloitte. They just have a different operating strategy that resonates with some clients better than others. Given that our cultures are different (I would argue opposite), it's no surprise when one get thrown out, they bring the other in

Happened to all of us.

Have an opportunity to roll of a 6-month engagement soon. PPEDs & SMEs would like me to return (minimum another 6 months). Client work is something I have absolutely no interest in (open SOW so a lot of BAU work). That being said, I don’t have another engagement lined up. I have been networking but my conversations have translated into involvement in pursuits/leads. I’d be walking away from guaranteed utilization on a G360 account and a potential agile promotion in May..gamble or not? thoughts?

I was on a crazy deal and ended up billing close to 330 hours in May. Once it closed mid June, the I immediately asked for approval to go on vacation in mid July which was cleared by the partners/assignment team. The same client just let us know they wanted to start diligence for a new deal and asked for the same team (me and 2 other associates). All of us will be out during the same 2 week span in July. We had no idea they had this new deal. I’m worried I’ll be told to cancel my vacation…
