People seem to like it. Better wlb than b4. Diversity supposedly is an issue based on posts I’ve seen on here.


Thanks, that’s helpful

I highly suggest that you find a better wlb/pay elsewhere. Many people are leaving the company now due to poorly managed conditions and expectations.


LOL ACN 1, the surveys aren’t voting. They anonymously survey the sentiment of the firm population. If you don’t think ACN does the same as do all firms you cray.


I used to work there and went to big-4. My WLB is way better and got a 50% pay increase. Glory days of WM are over because good amount of partners/directors/SPAM made a fortune from the MSD transaction and are starting to retire or go elsewhere.


WM 3 - I don't think those partners wanted to be there either. You drank the kool-aid way too much

In business school I found them and realized they have lower pay of most consulting firms. The Southwest Airlines or consulting vibes


Our compensation is not on par and they aren’t able to justify it anymore after the buy out…


The absolute clown I worked with went there as a manager so that itself is a 🚩




Looking for insight to WLB/salary. Would be coming in a senior consultant role

The business unit matters most if you want an actual answer.


A whole bunch of acquisitions and roll ups, yet still under 3,000 employees. I'm sure there are amazing people there, but I'd ask a lot of questions around growth and opportunity.

The comp not being on par is a tired comment, if so why are so many people joining the firm? How does it continue to grow? We must be doing something right 🤔

About 3 years, we hire hundreds of campus every year and at our size the new folks have an impact.

"Although we have people happily coming to office of their own choice but we are a people first company and there is no mandate on WFH Or WFO... its your career to make,your choice to take . We just promote return to togetherness..be it in office or virtually "

Can anyone else also confirm it they heard the same? Or have i misinterpreted

Why is there, or was there, a negative connotation/taboo with getting plastic surgery (breast lift, Liposuction, Botox, etc). It’s their own choice and body so what’s the issue?


I am planning on starting my own law practice in 2023. An area of law I would like to practice is family law (mainly to keep a stream of consistent cash flow). However, I’ve never practiced family law. Is this an area of law someone could learn rather quickly? Or is it necessary to work under and learn from experienced attorneys in that field before taking that leap?

Does anyone have an email template they like when making "cold call" introductions to other professionals/potential referral sources. I need to build a referral network with CPAs, financial planners, etc., and invite them to come to me with questions or send their referrals on over! Bonus points if you have more than one or one which is more easily customizable.

Anyone willing to comment on how the pay scale works at Accenture (preferably Canada, but NA in general is fine)? Also open to hearing about other firm pay scales and how I should approach this as an analyst looking to be successful. Example of success: big house, kids, cottage.


Almost midnight here and I'm cleaning my medicine cabinet so I can reboot having a regular skin-care routine. I'm listening to one of my favorite musicals, "Ragtime", specifically the song "He Wanted to Say". Living 9 time zones away from home out of the US and watching the BLM movement there, unable to do anything concrete about it from here - this song I've listened to countless times, today about brought me to tears.

I really don’t mean this to virtue signal - just wanted to share a moment.
