Viral ACN Farewell Email - Enjoy!

Know a lot of people at Accenture. There's been some running jokes there about people getting shafted and moved to CDO. And a lot of mess ups with big contracts. Obviously it's a big company and everyone's experiences are different but it's still amusing between us to take jabs at each other's jobs and the associated stereotypes.

Deloitte is insecure about their reps and the fact that their glorified accountants so they take jabs at everyone, but can you blame them? they have better exit opps than MBB and it's harder to get into D than Harvard!!

Hi All,

As many of you probably know, today is my last day in Accenture. But before I leave, I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know what a great and distinct pleasure it has been to type “Today is my last day. “For nearly as long as I’ve worked here, I’ve hoped that I might one day leave this company. And now that this dream has become a reality, please know that I could not have reached this goal without your unending lack of support. Words cannot express my gratitude for the words of gratitude you did not express.

I would especially like to thank all of my managers and team members: in an age where miscommunication is all too common, you consistently impressed and inspired me with the sheer magnitude of your misinformation. It takes a strong man to admit his mistake - it takes a stronger man to attribute his mistake to me.

Over the past four years, you have taught me more than I could ever ask for and, in most cases, ever did ask for. I have been fortunate enough to work with some absolutely interchangeable supervisors on a wide variety of seemingly identical projects - an invaluable lesson in overcoming daily tedium in overcoming daily tedium in overcoming daily tedium.
Your demands were high and your patience short, but I take great solace knowing that my work was, as stated on my annual review, “mostly satisfactory.” That is the type of praise that sends a man home happy after even a 10 hour day, smiling his way through half a bottle of mostly satisfactory scotch.

And to most of my peers: even though we barely acknowledged each other within these office walls, I hope that in the future, should we pass on the street, you will regard me the same way as I regard you: sans eye contact.

So, in parting, if I could pass on any word of advice to the individual who will soon be filling my position, it would be to cherish this experience like a sponge and soak it up like a good woman, because a job opportunity like this comes along only once in a lifetime.

Meaning: if I had to work here again in this lifetime, I would sooner kill myself.

Thanks and Regards,
Wasim

Gonna attempt a real comment here: Anyone who feels this way about their job or their company has only themselves to blame. We manage our own careers and make our own choices. I know the email is a fake, but if you read it, it only points outwards at others without acknowledging any personal shortcomings or recognizing opportunities for growth. That's the real problem with this way of thinking.

Hi everyone ! I’m thinking of quitting real estate. I’ve been licensed for a year with nothing to show for it. I’ve cold called hundreds of people, paid for leads, gotten leads from OpCity. I’ve shown hundreds of houses, helped people get preapproved just for them not to have $$ for deposits or inspections or have unrealistic expectations. I’m fed up with bending over backwards for nothing. I’ve gotten 5 offers accepted only to have the inspections come back that the home is no good.

Can people share their experience of renting out a 3bd/1bath single family home? I personally wouldn’t rent or buy but I had a rental townhouse 3bd/1.5bath for 4 years, two tenants, 24months each. I sold it at $20k above asking price. I have been looking at 3bd/2bath as a rental investment property because that’s what I would want in my house. I am debating if I should prioritize a garage or an extra bathroom for a single family home. Looking in greater Atalanta area.
