1. She’s not well liked at Accenture and North America did not do very well under her leadership.
2. She is very close to Ted Cruz (her husband was his campaign chairman )


Because Ted Cruz has no integrity and one of our core values is integrity


I never met her when I was at Accenture. She seemed to be a competent GC, but doesn't fit with the Accenture model. She's not run an operating group, hasn't run client accounts. The past 2 CEOs not only did both but we're also admired by the employees globally. I had a lot of interaction with Bill Green and there was rarely a day he wasn't out at a client, meeting our delivery teams, talking with people at all levels. Pierre was similar. I don't get the sense that Julie has that persona and respect. Hopefully she'll keep the stock price up. I think Sander would have been the better choice.

Tbh, i dont know why we are focusing so much on the fact that she is a woman. We should recognize that gender bias is not good either way.


Same as any other CEO of a company that large. Probably a sociopath that left a trail of bodies in their wake to get there.

My personal opinion : having a CEO with Law background does not fit with ACN business


Let’s see


Has extremely little impact on my day to day job


To be honest, IDGAF if a squirrel became CEO because the average employee won’t see the CEO in person anyway .


No, but a bad CEO can help an employee become unemployed


I’m so glad there’s another female CEO. #fightforequality


She’s so sweet!


nobody likes her - bad choice for CEO


Don’t generalize! She hasn’t given me any reason to dislike her. I’ll give her a chance to succeed


don't virtue signal SO LOUDLY PLEASE


she doesn't care about employers. Yes she was head of Na. she cares about appeasing the people that put her into power not about the well-being of her employees.


I'm not convinced that a CEO with no consulting experience was the right choice for a consulting firm.


Wasn’t she head of NA business before this? Why is her law background an issue


Lawyers are great managers but often lack vision due to the very discipline that fostered their legal background in the first place...I say this having graduated with a JD/MBA who's great at squeezing every dime out of what I'm giving...bad at knowing where to bet the money I saved.

99, CEO Joe Forehand
04, CEO Bill Green

19, CEO Julie Sweet

Obviously Notice the mechanical, planned lifecycle nature of the CEO position, it's designed lifecycle especially looking over simply the last 10 years with a single DuckDuckGo search.

I think if she motivates employees who were previously un or under-motivated, fantastic. Appointing a Western European Caucasian Aryan male like myself does absolutely nothing to motivate me personally. I don't get it..... no Elvis dust around a CEOs identity politics. If she can show a steady $boardDemamdPercentage rise in ACN stock price beyond 190 per share, shes done her job.

Does anyone have any tips on how to stay motivated when peers with the same role seemingly get away with delivering a lower quality of work? To be clear, I don’t mean that it “appears” they are doing less work, as I know the level of effort you actually see might not tell the whole story. More so, I’m finding it hard to just keep my head down and focus on what I’m bringing to the table when I see people delivering sloppy work and phoning it in as I’m pushing to be super buttoned up.


Anyone been to a spa in LA they love? I'm looking to get a package for my sister a bday present - where you can sit in steam rooms / jaccuzi / get massages.


Hello Consultants!

I will start working on H1B visa from October and I am planning to go to India in December. I am trying to find an interview date around Dec-Jan in New Delhi, but there’s none. Can I schedule an appointment from another city which has some availability? Do I have to change anything in my application if I book a slot from any other city?


I am new to RR this year. I am excited about this new journey and created this group to hear advice and tips for classroom setup, organization, and time management. Thanks to all who comment!


Is there a salary difference between different cloud engineering offerings within Deloitte? (Cloud Strategy vs. Cloud Managed Services)


How bad is it that I applied to a job at my current company on LinkedIn?
A friend sent me a link to the page so I could refer him, but I didn't see the code so I thought I could click it and find the code that way. Apparently it's a LinkedIn only application.


Define “working in M&A" and what roles are involved


Looking to get an SAP FI and CO certification. I have been doing accounting for over 10 years, should I go for Professional right away should I do a basic one first?

Today there are people protesting outside our state capitol. While some call it stupidity and a slap in the face to people on the front lines, it's hard to be mad at people who just want to work and can't pay their bills.

Anyone in Boston have an opinion of Slalom? They reached out without a clearly defined role. Reviews are good, but the role sounds sketchy.
