When presented with work projects do you normally say yes first and then ask questions, or ask questions first and then say yes?

Yes first

Depends on the project and how busy I am. But I nearly always ask at least some very basic fundamental questions before saying anything else - that's just good practice.

“I’d love to! Quick questions, when is it due to client and (another question)”

Of course ask questions. A simple, “tell me more” should suffice.

...I wonder what normal people feel in life. I wonder who I would have been if I weren’t so sick.


So this might be a better place to post this and ask this question: Uncle D has announced explicitly that most people won’t get a pay raise & bonus this year except for those promoted and high performers. Amid this crisis, are companies including other big 3, MBB, FAANG, boutique consulting firms still giving high raises and issue stocks? Can you share the impact from your firm?

Hello I am pursuing ACCA and also I am working in accenture and have 2.6 yrs of experience in accounts and finance profile I am actively looking for job change can any one help me please contact 9411836185


A friend of a friend asked if I could refer her to my firm. I agreed (seems like a good candidate and decent fit) since it’s hard to get through just by applying directly online and she doesn’t have a recruiter. We haven’t really talked about the referral bonus. Should I split the referral bonus if she gets hired, or is it fair to keep it since I helped her get the job?
