Hello Sharks, I need genuine suggestions regarding whether join Accentute Or not. My doj in 9th March but till now I'm not allocated in any project. I read many negative comments about accentute bench policy and pip program. Also there are 10% layoff policy.. Is it true??..
Also for me job security is a concern. Coz leaving EY where there is not such lay off policy or pip but joining accentute is bit challenging.
Please provide suggestions.

At my last review I was promised a promotion. Just found out my promotion will be pushed until the next cycle. I also found out someone in my class who is scheduled to work under me on two jobs was promoted. This worker deserves the promotion, but considering they are scheduled to perform tasks I have already performed and to be reporting to me, this feels like a slap in the face. Not sure what to do. I hear from recruiters frequently and know I am employable, but overall like my firm.
