My favorite way to travel! Have done at least 10 trips this way in both Asia and europe.

Have done a big part of Asia like that, and South America. It is incredibly more valuable to have the liberty of choice of your next day activity, knowing you are not bounded by where you should be sleeping. Most of the time, to avoid the burden of searching and calling in crisis at 6-8PM, we just book something via booking (or finding via booking then directly calling) during lunch or in any bus ride / airport / taxi /... for the same evening. Not especially more expense, but be ready to sleep sometimes in more crappy places you would have liked (I’m ok, my SO a bit less), or a bit more expensive than expected. Still more expensive in those countries does not change a damn thing for us tbh.

Lol I do this all the time. I do this with rental cars and hotels.

rental cars I booked in advance, hotels I dont. worst case is i sleep in the car. It’s ironic since ar work, i tend to be organized and plan things ahead. but outside of work when traveling, i’m don’t like structure that much… carefree

Currently part of knowledge team working on M&A related projects within MBB (coming from Big Four consulting). Feel like the job description didn't actually match the role, doing mostly research-related tasks and have 0 client interation. Just received an offer for Accenture strat (M&A) group, with sizeable TC increase. Is the change worth it: client interaction + travel + involved fully in project?or is the "downgrade" to accenture too large to outway the benefits. Headhunters love MBB.

Hello Fishes Need some info. Joining Accenture on 23 Feb. My Yoe-14.2 yrs, CCTC-14 lpa, level given is 8 and offered package is 25.98 (fixed). HR is saying this is max possible. How much % increment we get in annual appraisal cycle? And which month appraisal happen? What is the increment can be expected in next 1 or 2 years? If 25.8 is the highest bracket for level 8 then does it mean for next increment Accenture has to do my promotion to level 7? If not then hw soon promotion can be done?

After 1.5 years at the company I realised I am well underpaid. I am well aware that it would be a long shot to ask for a big raise (20k), but at the same time I don’t want to change company for that reason. A career coach told me that with my qualification I could easily earn 40k more per year than what I do. It’s really frustrating knowing that some colleagues without previous work experience would earn more on day 1 than what I earn now. I was a tech consultant for 1.5 years before this. Tips?
